Woman gets R2.5 million for an accident which happened when she was aged 4

An Eastern Cape woman who suffered serious injuries in a vehicle accident nearly 17 years ago — when she was just four years old — has finally been awarded more than R2.5m.

This case highlights the importance of perseverance and the impact of a long legal battle on the lives of accident victims.

The accident occurred in 2004 when the woman, now 21, was traveling with her family in a taxi that collided with another vehicle.

She sustained severe injuries, including a fractured skull, which left her with permanent disabilities.

The incident not only affected her physically but also emotionally and financially.

Despite the severity of her injuries, the woman and her family had to endure a lengthy legal battle to receive the compensation they deserved.

The process took nearly two decades, during which they faced numerous challenges and setbacks.

However, their determination and the support of a dedicated legal team eventually led to a favorable outcome.

The awarded amount of over R2.5m will undoubtedly make a significant difference in the woman’s life.
