Six years ago, a 17 year old ‘man’ was a passenger in a car that suffered a horrific collision when the driver swerved to avoid a fox.
At the time of the accident, he was studying to be an electrician and was just starting his career but this was cruelly cut short when the driver of the Fiat Punto he was travelling in lost control of his car.
As a result of the accident, the boy suffered multiple injuries to his legs and more importantly, a frontal lobe injury which resulted in permanent brain damage which has ruined any chance of a career as an electrician.
Now in his 20s, the severe brain damage has left him needing 24 care from his parents and specialist rehabilitation. His personality has changed and he suffers from behavioural and physical difficulties such as poor memory, in ability to be organise or plan and also suffers from sudden aggression and anger management issues.
His mother said:
“It is absolute agony to see your child suffer a brain injury and to watch them struggle every day,” she said.
“Since the accident, we’ve had to come to terms with the fact that we have lost the … we knew and our lives will never be the same again.”
She added: “We are hugely relieved and happy that the case has now been settled and we can try and draw a line under the past six years.”
