Pedestrian Brain Injury Victim receives 300,000 Pounds Settlement

Posted on: October 22nd, 2011

The family of a father of two, who sustained brain damage when hit by a speeding car, has agreed a 300,000 pounds pedestrian brain injury compensation settlement with the negligent driver´s insurers.

Zahid Hussain (30) from Blackburn, Lancashire, was crossing the road near his home in March 2007 when he was hit by a silver Volkswagen Golf and was left fighting for his life after sustaining four fractures to his skull and swelling on the brain.

Although Mr Hussain has recovered in part from his injuries, he still suffers cognitive and psychological problems and has been forced to move from the family home in Blackpool to his parent’s home in London.

In the High Court in London, Judge Alison Hampton QC was told that the two parties had reached an agreement on the amount of compensation that should be paid and, approving the settlement commented that “I hope the money can be put to good use, and in the best interests of the claimant.”
