A woman in Yorkshire is seeking compensation of over £300,000 after she was injured in a car crash in Poland.
Katarzyna Cieslar was a back-seat passenger in a Fiat Punto when it was involved in a collision with a BMW vehicle. The car in which she was travelling was being driven by Michal Cieslar in Skoczow, Poland at the time of the accident in February 2010.
The Huddersfield Daily Examiner claims that the car turned into the path of the BMW, causing a serious car crash. Mr Cieslar was convicted of a driving offence in relation to the incident, and given a suspended jail sentence.
Katarzyna Cieslar suffered serious injury in the collision, including a fractured neck. She also suffered a brain injury in the incident, and several other bone fractures. She is still recovering from these injuries, despite the accident happening more than two years ago.
The paper is now reporting that she is seeking compensation of over £300,000 for her injuries. Legal papers have reportedly been submitted to the High Court in London, and a hearing is expected to take place at some time in the future.
