Mrs P was a pedestrian on the pavement on St Peter’s Gate in Nottingham when the driver of a silver Toyota lost control of his car mounted the pavement and collided with her.
Mrs P suffered serious injuries in the accident requiring emergency surgery for damage to one of the arteries in her leg and sustaining multiple injuries including a fracture to her pelvis, various cuts and severe bruising over her body and face.

During the recovery period she had severe back ache and was using two walking sticks for a considerable length of time. After the accident it was also necessary for her to receive a lot of help at home and although, her condition did improve gradually, it was a very slow process.
