Up to £95k could be paid to paratrooper’s widow following accident

The widow of a paratrooper who was killed in an accident at an army base has won the right to a High Court compensation payout.

Stacy Train has launched the claim against the Ministry of Defence after her husband, Sergeant Phillip Train, was killed when the motorcycle he was riding hit the side of a mini-bus that had turned across his path at barracks in Colchester.

Ms Train claimed that the driver of the mini-bus was to blame for crash and that the Ministry of Defence should pay up to £475,000 damages.

After a hearing at the High Court, a judge ruled that the driver of the mini-bus, Private William Kwame Korsinah, was at fault, however a majority of the blame lay with Sergent Train.

Following the ruling, it is expected that a fifth of the claim value will be awarded once assessed, meaning a payout of up to £95,000 could be expected.
