Student Receives Pedestrian Compensation for Being Hit by a Car
A business administration student from Birmingham is to receive more than £1 million pedestrian compensation for being hit by a car following a negotiated settlement.
The undisclosed sum will be paid to Lee Edge (21) from the city´s suburb of King´s Heath after an agreement was reached on how much compensation he should be entitled to following an accident in January 2005; when he was run down by a car whose driver was later convicted of driving without due care and attention.
Lee made the claim for pedestrian compensation for being hit by a car through his mother Sandra while he was recovering from the accident – due to which he now suffers from poor memory, fatigue and difficulty in concentrating.
Despite his injuries, Lee managed to achieve sufficiently high grades to attend college and, following an assessment of his future health requirements, Lee will now be the recipient of a seven-figure settlement of pedestrian compensation for being hit by a car.
