Mechanic’s car accident injury compensated

A mechanic has been awarded £400,000 compensation after making a work-related car accident injury claim for damage suffered to his hand while servicing a police vehicle.

The mechanic had been checking an airbag when he brushed his hand against a knife that was wedged between two seats.

The 39-year-old's no win, no fee solicitor argued that the car accident injury had led his client to developing a condition called Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS).

Hearing the case at London's High Court the judge said that up until the accident the claimant had been a model employee who was an "ambassador" for the company he worked for.

The car accident injury settlement is comprised of a lump sum of £32,500, for pain, suffering and loss of enjoyment, as well as a series of index-linked ongoing payments in recognition of the fact the claimant is not expected ever to return to full-time work.
