A sales representative dislocated her knee and suffered ligament strain after being knocked over by a vehicle on a zebra crossing in a department store car park. She received £11,700 in compensation for injuries.
The woman was with her partner at the time who tried to stop the vehicle reversing by banging on the window, however it continued to reverse. The woman hit the floor and felt immediate pain in her right knee and she was unable to get up or move.
A Paramedic firstly attended the scene and gave the woman gas and air advising her she may have dislocated her knee but that the joint had popped back into place before he arrived.
The woman was taken to hospital by ambulance and underwent an x-ray where it was confirmed what the Paramedic had originally stated. The hospital advised the woman may have also sustained a ligament strain and was required to take three days off work to rest.
Following the accident and with the help of experts from Irwin Mitchell, the woman received £11,700 in compensation for injuries.
