Motor Insurers’ Bureau Awards Damages

It’s been reported that a woman involved in a hit and run incident has been awarded damages amounting to seven figures.

Carol Bright was paralysed in 2010 in an accident whilst she was waiting for a lift from her husband, who was coming to pick her up from her place of work. On that particular September day she was knocked down after a van reversed into her.

As a result of the incident, Mrs. Bright sustained serious injuries that left her paralysed from the neck down. The accident means that Mrs. Bright now has to sit in a wheelchair for the rest of her life. She was forced into hospital for rehabilitation for a total of 14 months and requires 24/7 care in order to fulfil all of her basic needs.

After the incident, Alexander Abimbola, who was supposedly driving the van at the time, was ordered to appear in court. He didn’t appear to answer the allegations of dangerous driving and his current location is currently unknown, although the police are currently searching for him.

The Evening Standard has reported that Mrs. Bright has come to a settlement with the Motor Insurers’ Bureau, which provides compensation to those who are injured by uninsured or missing drivers. The exact amount of compensation awarded hasn’t been revealed, but it’s been estimated that it amounts to a multi-million pound payout. The money awarded is designed to go towards Mrs. Bright’s care and accommodation upkeep, which has been adapted for her needs.
