Man seeks compensation for injuries sustained in snowstorm
A storm chaser from Kansas in the US has launched a claim for car accident compensation after another motorist struck his SUV during a snowstorm in Montana.
The man claims that the crash has destroyed his vehicle, which held unique value after surviving 350,000 miles through severe weather conditions including hurricanes and tornadoes.
The storm chaser has 20 years experience documenting record-setting storms and his work has been shown on television programs, news networks and in art museums.
The crash, which took place in November 2010 during a snowstorm occurred when his SUV slid down a driveway and became stuck in snow at the end of the drive. The other motorist who had allegedly been driving at high speed along the road slid into the side of his car.
As well as the damage to his vehicle the claimant is also seeking compensation for personal injuries sustained in the accident, which left him unable to work while he recovered.
It has not yet been revealed how much car accident compensation the claimant is seeking.
