Record damages awarded following car accident

Posted in: Car Accidents Road Traffic Accidents Wrongful & Accidental Death 

A 17-year-old girl has been awarded compensation worth around £23million following a car crash in 2009 that killed her mother and left Agnes Collier and her brother Rufus seriously injured, reports the Independent.

The accident happened when a motorist pulled out of a side road, causing the car driven by 48-year-old Karen Hood to be hit by a lorry.

Rufus has since recovered from the accident, but Agnes was left with no use of her legs and limited use of her arms. Her compensation will be paid as a lump sum of £7.25 million plus annual payments of £270,000 for the rest of Agnes’ life to meet her care needs.

According to the Independent, the amount of compensation is the highest ever awarded for a personal injury in the UK, surpassing the previous record of £12.2 million
