Car technician seeks compensation for test drive crash

A car technician left paralysed from the neck down after crashing a high performance Ferrari 348 TS has launched a claim for car accident compensation against the car dealer.

The 31-year-old had been working as a car technician in Maidstone, Kent when he lost control of the high performance vehicle which he had been test driving and careered into another car before crashing into trees.

The worker sustained severe personal injury in the car accident which has left him wheelchair bound and dependant on round-the-clock care.

He has now launched a claim for car accident compensation against his ex-employers, claiming that they should not have allowed him to test drive such high performance vehicles on the public road.

He has also claimed that his former boss had instructed him to take the car up to 100mph to ensure that the car was running smoothly. However, the claimant's former employer has denied this claim and has stated that employees had been told to obey the rules of the road.

The claim for car accident compensation is expected to be heard at court next year.
