Official seeks £300k compensation after road traffic accident

Official seeks £300k compensation after road traffic accident

A road traffic accident in London has resulted in man seeking more than £300,000 in personal injury compensation.

According to the London Evening Standard, US lobbyist John Falk needed "major reconstructive surgery" on his face when the black cab he was a passenger in collided with a central reservation in Mayfair last February.

Mr Falk, who at the time of the crash was en route to a meeting with defence secretary and North Somerset MP Liam Fox, has consequently lost 70 per cent of the vision in his left eye and needed an emergency operation immediately after to relieve pressure on his head, the news source added.

In addition, he had several teeth knocked out and also sustained a fractured nose, which, his representatives say, cost him "tens of thousands" in healthcare treatment.

As a result, he is suing Michael Glassman, director of Colts Cabs, for a sum of £300,000 as recompense for these costs, as well as his personal suffering.
