A Scottish police officer is making a claim for whiplash and other injuries he suffered in a high-speed training accident.
Personal injury lawyers representing the policeman are making the claim for whiplash and associated personal injuries on the grounds that the officer in charge of training was too occupied with domestic affairs and failed to properly organise the high speed driving training exercise.
The Scottish accident claim has been lodged with the Scottish Police Services Authority and alleges that compensation should be paid for depression, trauma, whiplash and "intermittent sexual dysfunction".
According to the compensation claim writ, "The accident was caused by the negligence of... the instructor in charge of training. He failed to give proper attention and support to the trainees on the course."
It adds, "He [the instructor] spent much of the course on his mobile phone, speaking to his solicitor, estate agents, financial advisors and other people involved in [a] house purchase."
If successful, the claim for whiplash and other injuries could be settled for around £300,000.
