Compensation sought for bus injury

An Islington man is seeking injury compensation for an accident three years ago involving a bus.

James Stones was emerging from the cinema in November 2007 when he slipped and caught his legs beneath the wheels, the Islington Tribune reports.

The vehicle pulled away, dragging Mr Stones along the ground with it and causing severe injuries to his legs and arm.

He required ten months of hospital treatment and was dependent upon a wheelchair for several months after being discharged.

Mr Stones’ friend Ken Howard told the paper: "What happened to James shouldn’t happen to a dog.

"His leg still has still not healed properly and I’m surprised he’s not still in hospital."

The news follows reports last month in the Croydon Advertiser that schoolboy Luke Murtagh, who suffered severe damage after being dragged beneath the wheels of a bus in Thornton Heath, is in line for a huge injury compensation payout from operator Arriva.ADNFCR-2070-ID-19269320-ADNFCR
