Woman awarded £35,000 compensation for road accident injuries

A woman driver who was involved in a head-on collision with a car travelling on the wrong side of the road has received more than £35,000 in compensation.

The woman was 61 at the time of the accident two years ago. She suffered two broken bones and a fractured joint in her foot. She was unable to bear weight for four months following the crash and experienced severe pain.

Her symptoms are expected to be permanent and she has been advised that she may need an operation to fuse two bones together in her foot if the pain becomes worse.

Such an operation would reduce her pain but could also reduce her mobility.

The other driver admitted liability.

The woman received total damages of £35,504 in an out-of-court settlement.
