The widow of a paratrooper killed in a motorcycle accident receives a substantial compensation award.
A £95,000 road accident claim payout has been awarded to an army sergeant’s widow.
Sergeant Philip Train, a 34 year old paratrooper, was killed in a motorcycle accident outside his Colchester army base. He died when his motorbike smashed into the side of an army mini-bus which had turned into his path.
Following his death his widow brought a claim for compensation against the Ministry of Defence.
Her case was referred to the High Court, where the judge ruled that compensation was due to Sergeant Train's widow. The MoD was ordered to pay £95,00 in damages.

The evidence presented in court showed that both the minibus driver Private Korsinah and Sergeant Train were at fault, the compensation eventually agreed took into account each party's liability for the accident.
The initial award was £475,000 based on Private Korsinah's 100% liability. However liability for the accident was divided and Sergeant Train was said to be 80% to blame. As the driver of the minibus was 20% at fault, Mrs Train was awarded compensation totalling 20% of the £475,000 initially awarded.
