A Maidenhead PE teacher is expecting a huge injury compensation payout after a road accident resulted in his foot being partially amputated.
Paul Lloyd, formerly an Olympic swimming coach, was helping a driver move his damaged car to the other side of a dual carriageway when an articulated lorry ran over his foot, the Slough and Langley Observer reports.
He has needed 30 operations since the accident, is unable to walk unaided and has had to sign off from work until May.
Furthermore, his injuries could be so severe that he might one day need his entire lower right leg amputated.
The 40-year-old was just awarded 80 per cent of the six-figure injury compensation figure after a judge ruled he was partially liable for the accident, which Mr Lloyd said "is completely ridiculous".
A cyclist who suffered broken ribs after riding over a pothole in Berkshire was recently awarded £7,600 in injury compensation after the local council admitted liability for the accident.
