Teacher seeks £1m in compensation after karting crash

Teacher seeks £1m in compensation after karting crash

A teacher has launched a claim for £1 million in compensation after being hurt in an accident in a public place.

Julie Markie is suing Glenrothes firm Driveflight after one of her pupils ran into her on a school day out at a go-karting track, causing damage to her left foot and ankle and right leg, the Courier reports.

Up until that point, she had been employed at Peterhead Academy, but eventually had to give up her job because of the injuries she sustained.

According to the court documents, Ms Markie suffered from post-traumatic stress disorder after the accident and now she also has to use a cane to get about.

She is looking for a settlement that will reflect her loss of earnings after she gave up her job as a craft and design teacher.

Drivelight - which is marketed as Kartstart - has the longest indoor circuits in Scotland and they are based in Fife and Aberdeen.
