A SETTLEMENT is expected to be lodged with the High Court after an 82 year-old woman was left brain damaged after an accident.

Ms Turner, then 82, lodged a claim for damages after she suffered a skull fracture causing brain damage.
"As a result of this she has been rendered incapable of managing her own affairs," says a claim form registered with the Queen's Bench Division of the High Court of Justice.
