Man awarded almost £500,000 after car crash

A man from the US who was involved in a road traffic accident in Britain has been awarded just under £500,000 in damages for the injuries he sustained during the incident.

Juan Feliciano-Diaz was stationed at the Lakenheath Royal Air Force (RAF) base - which is operated by the US Air Force - in 2006 when he crashed with another vehicle while driving a jeep.

He suffered multiple injuries during the accident, including a severe leg problem which eventually forced him to retire in 2007 after he had returned to work with a desk job following his recovery period.

According to the Eastern Daily Press, the 28-year-old was treated at the West Suffolk Hospital in Bury St Edmonds and the Lakenheath Medical Centre, but was never able to regain 100 per cent mobility in his troublesome leg.

However, Mr Feliciano-Lopez has now been awarded almost half a million pounds to cover both his loss of earnings and RAF pension fund.
