James Sedge, from Sheerness, with his newborn daughter Tilly
A father left needing 24-hour care after being hit by a car in Sheerness has won £6.1million in compensation.
James Sedge, now 27, was seriously injured when he was struck as he tried to cross the High Street in June 2006.
He was thrown across the road by the impact and hit a bollard, suffering a serious head injury.
His case was heard at the High Court in London, which has awarded the sum to cover the cost of his life-long care.
The father-of-one was cared for at the Little Oyster in Minster, but has since moved.
In 2011, Mr Sedge took his case to the High Court through his mother, Yolanda Skinner.
Judge Gary Burrell found 26-year-old Christopher Prime's driving was "negligent" when his BMW X5 hit Mr Sedge.
The judge said Mr Prime was "75% responsible" for the tragedy, saying Mr Sedge's actions also contributed to it - as he stepped out into the road without looking and was "oblivious" as to whether there was any traffic.
The crash happened at about 11pm on June 2, 2006 near the Crown pub as Mr Prime was taking some friends to a nearby takeaway in his father's car - which had been collected from the showroom earlier that day.
