Man seeks compensation over car crash injuries

A man who suffered serious injuries when a car he was travelling in crashed in 2006 is seeking a payout.

David Murie sustained serious damage to his chest, a head injury and cuts and bruises as a result of the impact, the Northamptonshire Evening Telegraph reports.

The 21-year-old, who was training as an apprentice carpenter when the accident occurred, was a front seat passenger in a vehicle which collided with a tree between Oakham and Melton Mowbray - a town situated in north-eastern Leicestershire.

He is suing the driver of the car Mark Swinburn, who he alleges was negligent.

According to Mr Murie, he is at increased risk of developing epilepsy as a result of the accident.

In addition, his memory is said to have been affected and he suffers from fatigue, a lack of enthusiasm and feelings of aggression.

He is suing for £250,000, including £100,000 for loss of earnings.

As well as the damage suffered by Mr Murie, three back seat passengers died as a result of the crash.
