    Man awarded £4m compensation due to brain damage from a car crash

    By David Brown on November 13, 2014

    A man is said to be ‘too angry to work’ after suffering brain damage from a car crash nine years ago. Paul Vallance was in the accident at the age of 18 but doctors failed to recognise that his injuries were more serious. He was diagnosed with a slight head injury despite the fact that he showed symptoms of confusion and lost the ability to speak. He also suffered from amnesia when doctors diagnosed the injury. He received a small cash payout for his misdiagnosis at the time. However, when Mr Vallance returned to work soon after, he discovered he was prone to angry outbursts which led to a number of sackings. Mr Vallance tried to return to work several times but was unable to control his temper any more.

    His mother, Tina Vallance, states that his personality changed dramatically after the crash but he was dismissed by doctors appointed by his insurance company. Ms Vallance approached another law firm to handle his case and brain scans were commissioned which showed more extensive brain damage. Mr Vallance won his compensation claim to the amount of £4 million due to his extensive injuries and the need for his lifelong rehabilitation. Specialist care is now being provided for Mr Vallance as a result of the case.

    Road traffic accident claims

    Road safety is vital to ensure that you reduce your chances of being involved in a road traffic accident. If you find that you are involved in an accident and the other driver was speeding or was driving recklessly, you may be entitled to compensation.
