GBP 2 million awarded following brain injury

A Bristol woman who suffered brain damage after she was knocked over by a van has been awarded almost GBP 2 million in injury compensation.

Alana Lewis was leaving the home of her father-in-law in Knowle when she was knocked down, causing bleeding on the brain and a severe stroke which left her paralysed down her left side, the Evening Post reports.

She now suffers from severe memory loss and is dependent on a wheelchair for mobility, meaning she will never again be able to return to her job as a fitness instructor.

Her mother will also be given annual payments of GBP 129,000 towards the cost of caring for her but the family was expecting a much higher sum.

She told the paper: "We were expecting at least £4 million. This news makes me so angry.

"It’s an unacceptable amount."

The case follows reports in the Norwich Evening News that a 25-year-old woman from Gorleston is awaiting the results of an injury compensation claim after losing part of her left leg in a car crash.ADNFCR-2070-ID-19246152-ADNFCR
