A Churchill spokesperson comments:
"This case is tragic, but the law is clear that the level of compensation must reflect the facts and circumstances of the case.
The court has yet to decide on the final compensation the claimant is to receive.
We have accepted that our insured driver was largely responsible for this accident. We are asking the Court of Appeal to consider whether or not the judge was correct in finding that the claimant should bear no blame whatsoever for what happened. We will abide by whatever decision the Court of Appeal makes.
As this case is now before the Court of Appeal we cannot comment on it in any more detail at the present time."
