Man forced to pay half his compensation to ex-wife

A Father from Chelmsford in Essex, who was awarded £500,000 in car accident compensation, has been ordered to pay over half to his ex-wife.

The car crash, which took place in 1992, left the 41-year-old man with personal injuries which were so severe he required a leg amputation and suffered serious spinal damage. He was later awarded with car accident compensation in order to help cover any loss of earnings and future care costs.

Despite receiving the compensation five years before meeting his former spouse, the man could have to give over half of his £500,000 after the Court of Appeal upheld that the money should be available to his wife and twin daughters as well .

The man may be forced to sell his bungalow, which was bought with the car accident compensation and has been specially adapted for his needs, in order to provide his ex-wife with enough money to buy a new home for her and their children.
