Pensioner seeks compensation from ‘careless driver’

A Sussex pensioner is in line to receive up to GBP 150,000 in injury compensation after she was hit by a car in Hastings.

Retired teacher Shelagh Leach, 83, suffered two broken legs and required emergency surgery after a driver collided with her on January 1st, The Argus reports.

Her solicitors state that she had been waiting to cross the road after buying a newspaper at a petrol station when motorist Paul Barnard swerved into her, before driving away without stopping.

She spent nearly two months in hospital following the accident.

Ms Leach has now launched legal action in the High Court to claim between GBP 100,000 and GBP 150,000 in injury compensation.

The case comes shortly after reports in the Swindon Advertiser that a cyclist who suffered severe spinal injuries after being hit from behind by a car has been told he will receive a compensation settlement of up to GBP 4 million.ADNFCR-2070-ID-19260320-ADNFCR
