Musician awarded £1.1m personal injury compensation

Musician awarded £1.1m personal injury compensation

Injuries sustained during a road traffic accident some six years ago have resulted in a musician being awarded more than £1 million in compensation.

Tavenor Douglas was knocked over on a pedestrian crossing near the Natural History Museum in London following a celebration with friends for his 35th birthday in January 2005 and will subsequently never be able to work again, the Henley Standard has reported.

Mr Douglas - who previously worked in the legal sector - wrote and recorded his own music and was set to release his debut album shortly after the incident, which left him blind in one eye and deaf in one ear.

As a result of the collision, he was comatose for a week and then needed to be kept in intensive care at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital - which opened in 1993 and is run by the Chelsea and Westminster Hospital NHS Trust - for a further month.
