An amputee who was a CAR CRASH victim has had his compensation taken from him.
The man who had an accident as a student and lost a leg and suffered spinal injuries was awarded 500K compensation.
However, he subsequently married and had two children. His grasping wife has taken him to the cleaners and has been awarded 285K.
In a unique case which is the reverse of Macca and Heather McCartney the poor guy has really been hurt financially by the judge's decision in his ex-wife's, Catherine Mansfield's, favour.
The poor man said that he wanted to warn other men how they could also have their hard-earned cash taken away from them by a scheming woman. He said that he was quite shy but he wanted men to know how any disabled guy, such as a returning vet from Afghanistan, could lose out in the courtroom.
Men everywhere be warned that sometimes men can be discriminated against in court where there are children involved in a divorce settlement.
It is hoped that the car crash victim an amputee will be able to appeal against his plight. The poor man has been forced to sell his car on ebay and is struggling to make ends meet.
It raises the question of how the disabled man will be able to afford his future medical care?
