Woman Awarded Compensation for Roadside Accident

A nursing assistant who suffered multiple fractures to her pelvis when a car was shunted into her as she stood at the side of a busy dual carriageway has secured a five-figure sum in compensation for her injuries.

Anna Harrison had gone to the aid of her daughter after she had telephoned to say that she had broken down on the A38 near Littleover in Derbyshire. She had finished helping her daughter and was standing with her partner on the grass verge at the side of the road when a van smashed into the back of her car and shunted it into them.

Ms Harrison was taken to the local hospital, where scans and X-rays showed that she had fractured her pelvis in several places and required surgery. She was transferred to Queen's Medical Centre in Nottingham where she underwent an operation to fix metal rods into her pelvis to help it heal. It was several months before she was able to return to work.

She brought a personal injury claim against the driver of the van and secured compensation for her loss of earnings and to assist with the cost of her ongoing medical treatment.
