Teenager set to receive millions after car crash

Teenager set to receive millions after car crash

Compensation running into millions of pounds is set to be awarded to a teenager left with life-changing injuries following a road traffic accident.

According to the Northampton Chronicle & Echo, Bethany Probert sustained severe head injuries when she was struck by a car as she walked alongside Abthorpe Road, near Silverstone, in December 2009.

Due to the impact of the collision, the girl, who was aged 13 at the time, suffered brain damage along with serious lung injuries and a broken collarbone.

Her mother Joanna Probert subsequently took legal action against Paul Moore - the driver of the car who was rushing because he was late for work - and London's High Court has now ruled that Bethany is entitled to damages to pay for the care she will need for the rest of her life.

Judge David Pittaway commented: "Her head injury is likely to have a significant effect on her personality, employability and ability to live independently in the future."
