€87,644 compensation to injured driver

A man who could not work and will need medical treatment for the rest of his life because of a car crash in 2006 was given compensation of €87,644 today.

George Spiteri, who was 39 at the time of the incident, was severely injured when a truck driven by Raymond Fava came out of a side street and crashed into his VW Bora in Birzebbuga.

Fava had admitted not keeping a proper lookout despite a stop sign.    

He was ordered by a court to pay the compensation to Mr Spiteri today after the court heard how Mr Spiteri suffered a 50% disability, was not working and suffered various medical problems.

He used to have an income of €8,400 a year.
