An ex-footballer has initiated an injury compensation claim for over GBP 300,000.
Steve Tavinor, who used to play for Oxford United, was crushed by a car as he unloaded scaffolding from a lorry in Steeple Aston, the Oxford Mail reports.
The 36-year-old still cannot work due to the serious injuries that he sustained to his left leg and he fears he could lose the limb.
"I am still having treatment and it is just a case of waiting to see what happens. No one is sure about the future," he told the newspaper.
Mr Tavinor went on to say that he will never be able to play football again.
He is suing Trevor Tyler, of Grange Park Road, Steeple Aston, who was driving the car that hit him.
Mr Tyler was convicted of careless driving at Banbury Magistrates’ Court earlier this week.
Earlier this month, the Courier reported that Jennifer Blyth, from Kirkcaldy in Fife, had been awarded GBP 1.5 million in injury compensation, ten years after she was hit by a taxi.
