Man receives £2m compensation after motor track accident

Man receives £2m compensation after motor track accident

A man has been given £2 million in personal injury compensation after an accident at work left him with serious injuries.

Head racing circuit groundsman at Castle Combe David Johnson sustained severe head wounds when he was blown off a truck while collecting metal advertising hoardings in 2008.

As a result of the collision, Mr Johnson will require 24-hour care and the money will be used to buy a specially-adapted home.

Neil Elliott, the solicitor representing the man, said his life has changed "dramatically" because of the accident.

"David is a determined man and has always wanted to return home, despite the severe difficulties caused by his brain injury," he added.

As well as the lump sum, Mr Johnson - who is still in rehabilitation because of the incident - will also get an annual payment of £250,000 a year.

A number of famous drivers have graced Castle Comb in the past, including Sterling Moss, John Surtees and Nigel Mansell.
