A Black Country woman is suing the Midlands' largest bus company after she was involved in a traffic collision in Birmingham which she claimed left her with a range of health problems.
Shaheen Rafiq was a passenger on the Travel West Midlands number 258 bus in Birmingham when it collided with a Nissan car, a High Court writ claims.
The 33-year-old, of Forest Road, Oldbury, Sandwell, claims she hit her head on the windscreen after she was thrown forward during the collision. Ms Rafiq had been going home from work on September 9 2002 when the accident happened at the Five Ways roundabout.
She claims to have suffered a severe head injury which caused post traumatic amnesia, headaches, hallucinations and drowsiness. Ms Rafiq is seeking compensation from the bus operator and the driver of the Nissan.
TWM spokesman Phil Bateman said: "Clearly this is an issue that is likely to end in a legal review and it would be difficult for us to make a comment in these circumstances."
