A woman employed as a lollipop lady has been settled her compensation claim for injuries received in a hit-an-run traffic accident for a four figure sum.
Karen Littler (49) from Wigan, Lancashire was hit by a Honda Insight driven by Ceris Lovett while she was helping children cross the road in March 2012.
Ms Lovett failed to stop and check the condition of the victim but a quick thinking motorist followed her and took her registration number before the police were alerted.
Ms.Littler made the claim directly against Ms.Lovett’s insurance company who did not respond to her claim within the time frame required. Court proceedings were issued and Ms.Littler received an undisclosed sum for her injuries.
