Navy officer wins $7.5m road traffic accident compensation

A former sailor from California has been awarded $7.5 million (around £4.0m) in road traffic accident compensation after suffering severe personal injuries when he collided with a shuttle van.

The 27-year-old had been working as a navy officer at the time of the car accident which took place in 2007. He had been riding his Harley Davidson to work at the US Navy submarine base in San Diego when the shuttle bus from a nearby car showroom turned in front of the biker causing him to be thrown from his motorcycle.

He suffered severe personal injuries in the accident, including a fractured pubic ramus bone as well as crush injuries and nerve damage.

The sailor was forced to undergo reconstructive surgery and has since been told that he may be unable to have children due to the severity of the injury.

It was later revealed that the driver of the shuttle bus had been driving on an expired license and had not received formal training in driving a bus.

A jury in El Cajon, California, awarded the former sailor $7,553,000 in road traffic accident compensation for the pain, suffering, medical bills and loss of income caused by the accident.
