Proceedings have begun to secure injury compensate on for a hit and run victim in Suffolk who remains in a coma five months after the incident.
Chris Corder, 42, suffered traumatic brain injuries and is likely to require care for the rest of his life after he was hit by a car driven by Andrew Boyd, manager of rock star Pete Doherty, the Ipswich Evening Star reports.
Mr Boyd was sentenced last week, having previously admitted to dangerous driving, failing to stop at the scene of a collision and also failing to stop at the scene of an incident.
The Motor Insurers’ Bureau has been approached by solicitors acting on behalf on Mr Corder and his family to begin injury compensation claims, which will help to pay for the victim’s care.
It follows reports in the South Yorkshire Star that a man who suffered brain damage in a car crash that killed one other person has been guaranteed a "massive" injury compensation payout.
