Pedestrian Brain Injury Compensation Settlement for Victim

The family of a father of two, who suffered 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) of Blackburn, Lancashire, was crossing the street near his home in March 2007 when he was struck 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 partially recovered 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 agreed 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.”
