A pensioner, who sustained horrific injuries when she was involved in a car accident with a foreign driver who was driving on the wrong side of the road, has settled her car injury compensation claim with the driver´s insurers.

Ann Roberts (79) of Battenhall, Worcestershire, had been driving from Leominster to Ludlow on the B4361, when French motorist Alain Le Den collided with her because he had been driving on the wrong side of the road.

Ann, a former teacher, had to air lifted to Birmingham´s Selly Oak hospital, where she was treated for several broken bones and a collapsed lung. She also needed to have a brace attached to her skull to assist keeping her neck from sustaining further damage.

Mr Le Den´s French car insurance company agreed with the police reports and Ann´s testimony that their client was negligent and agreed an out-of-court settlement to provide her with car injury compensation for the injuries she suffered in the accident.
