Former Marine wins personal injury compensation

Former Marine wins personal injury compensation

An ex-Royal Marine has been awarded a multi-million pound personal injury compensation settlement after he sustained a serious head injury during an accident at work.

According to the Journal, Steward Daglish, who is now 39 years of age, now battles psychotic illness following an incident in 1994 when he suffered a major brain injury while working on a field exercise in Scotland.

The man was a passenger in a Land Rover which hit a cliff and rolled over leaving him with a "chronic personality disorder" that involves behavioural issues and problem-solving difficulties, the news source added.

Following the accident - which took place near Glencoe, a mountainous area situated around 100 miles away from capital city Edinburgh - Mr Daglish launched legal action against the Ministry of Defence, but his former employer refused to accept liability for his mental health problems.

However, a judge at the High Court has since ruled that this is the case and the former Marine has subsequently been awarded an undisclosed sum.
