The mother of a girl injured in a car accident is seeking injury compensation after it emerged that the driver of the car will not face criminal charges.
Macy Roberts, nine, was taken to hospital with whiplash and burn wounds after a car mounted the pavement and collided with a group of schoolchildren in Worlingham last September, the Norfolk Eastern Daily Press reports.
Her mother Victoria Waterman has since discovered that police have decided not to charge the driver of the car involved in the crash, which caused eight children to be taken to hospital.
"I am so angry. I am totally in shock. Macy’s physical injuries have healed, but her mental injuries have not. The trauma is going to be there for years," she told the paper.
"My daughter is one of the luckier ones, but this has affected her."
It follows the high-profile injury compensation payout given to car crash victim Lukasz Borowski, who received GBP 8.35 million.
