Compensation shock after man lost leg

Posted in: Arm Leg Feet & Hands Personal Injury Public Liability Road Traffic Accidents 

The wife of a taxi driver that lost his leg in an incident is shocked at the outcome of her husband’s case. Jeremy Mayers (63), the owner of company ‘Fab Kabs’, was crushed while loading a suitcase into the back of his taxi in Pontypool in January. The driver of the vehicle that caused the damage, Laura Llewellyn, received six penalty points and a fine of £115 after pleading guilty.

Mr Mayers, a father of two, had to have his right leg amputated from the knee down and his back pinned on both sides following the accident. For eight months after the incident – which occurred on the 19th of January – Mr Mayers was unable to leave hospital, let alone return to work. Following thirteen operations in total, doctors believe that he will continue to require rehabilitation for at least another two years.

“Disappointed in the outcome”

Cwmbran magistrate Cathryn Brooker gave Ms Llewellyn a £115 fine, (£85 prosecution costs and a £20 surcharge) as well as six penalty points, which means she is still able to drive. Mr Mayers’ wife, Lesley Mayers, said: “My husband is really good, he is very strong physically and mentally … It is not going to beat him … But it has turned our life upside down … I am disappointed in the outcome but I can’t change it.
