A SETTLEMENT is expected to be lodged with the High Court after an 82 year-old woman was left brain damaged after an accident.
Selso Crawford's insurers have reached agreement after he was involved in an accident which seriously injured Ethel Turner of Staithe Road, Walsoken.
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.
Court papers show that a friend with a power of attorney had been registered with the Court of Protection to handle the claim.
"The court's approval is now sought for the settlement reached between the parties," said the application to the court.
