HOLY COW! $36 million dollar payout!
A teenage girl paralysed in a car crash that killed her mum won record £23million ($36 million US) damages today (Nov. 19th).
Agnes Collier lost the use of her legs and most of the function in her arms after a lorry struck the family’s car when she was 13.
Her payout, approved by the High Court in London today, is thought to be the highest ever for personal injury – nearly twice the previous record of £12.2million ($19 million US).
Agnes, now 17, was maimed in the March 2009 smash on the A436 in Gloucestershire that left her brother Rufus with a serious head injury and killed her teacher mum Karen Hood, 48.
Now I had to google what a “lorry” is and it’s a semi truck.
Now as much as that is an incredible amount of money to be compensated for your lifetime, nothing can replace the loss of your abilities and the life of loved ones. But it can sure buy a lot of Twinkies! Have you seen how much they are trying to sell them on ebay! That’s CRA!
