A 22-year-old woman whose life was forever altered after a severe road traffic accident, has reportedly been awarded £3 million in personal injury compensation.
In January 2004, Vicki Hart was just 14-years-old when she was struck by a taxi in a small Yorkshire town. The horrific accident left her with a multitude of life threatening injuries, including fractures to her neck and skull as well as a blood clod in her head.
So worrying were her injuries that medical professionals feared Ms Hart would die from the ordeal. Miraculously she survived, but Ms Hart now requires round-the-clock care for her disabilities.
Her family, acting on her behalf, took retrospective legal action against the taxi driver and, during a case heard at the High Court in London, Mr Justice Spencer indicated he had “no hesitation” in granting Ms Hart a damages sum that should “cover her care costs for life”.
“Eight years ago a near-fatal brain injury had life-changing consequences for a young woman. The compensation after such an agonisingly long time can at last give her and her family some hope for the future,” added one personal injury expert.
