Motorist secures compensation after suffering head injuries
A man who sustained serious injuries to his head in a car crash has been awarded compensation.
Sean Milligan was driving in the south Lanarkshire town of Carluke, which is located in the central region of Scotland, when his car was hit by banned motorist Mark Lynch, the BBC reports.
Mr Lynch, who was jailed for nine months as a result of the incident, had been under the influence of alcohol and was on the wrong side of the road when the accident took place.
During a recent hearing, Lord Woolman ruled that Mr Milligan should receive a payout of £3.3 million to help pay for his care.
The 44-year-old, who was described as a quiet, gentle and caring man before the accident, now suffers from bouts of anger and aggression.
He also has a low noise tolerance and finds it difficult to concentrate, balance and walk.
Mr Milligan had to spend 28 weeks in a brain injury rehabilitation unit following the crash.
