RAF technician's lawyer hopes to secure £6 million

A former RAF technician is making personal injury claim against the MoD after becoming paralysed as a result of an injury sustained in morale-building exercise.

The 24-year-old was participating in a game that involved diving to the bottom of an inflatable pool to retrieve plastic fruit when he slipped, fracturing three vertebrae in his cervical spine. He has now been medically retired from his job with RAF, something which is likely to be a significant factor in any component for lost earnings in his personal injury claim.

Commenting on his personal injury claim, the 24-year-old said, "I feel both the MoD and event organisers were to blame for the way in which they encouraged me and others to take part in what proved to be a very dangerous game.

"I'm determined to get on and enjoy myself as best as I can, but I find it hard to come to terms with having sustained my disability in such a pointless exercise."

The claimant's personal injury lawyer is hoping to secure his client accident compensation of £6 million.
