||6 July 2001
Damages - Personal injury - Amount of damages - Claimant hit by car driven by first defendant - Claimant suffering fracture to left femur and right knee - Claimant in constant pain and mobility severely restricted - Extent to which disabilities due to causes predating accident.
The sum of 20,000 general damages was appropriate to compensate the claimant for a serious fracture to his left femur, causing him constant pain in the left hip, and a fracture to the right knee that had healed well. That sum took account of the fact that the claimant's severely restricted mobility was largely due to conditions from which he already suffered at the time of his accident.
