Compensation claim for injured Car Giant salesman

The family of a car salesman who suffered a brain injury in an incident at CarGiant in 2017 are seeking more than £300,000 damages in a lawsuit.

Mohammed Al-Zehairi was treated for a fractured skull and a leg injury after he was hit by a car at his workplace.

His family claim the injury has left him with an altered personality.

The incident occurred in April 2018. A colleague was preparing a Citroen C4 Grand Picasso when it shot forward, hitting Al-Zehairi and a security cabin.

Claire Glasgow, from Fieldfisher law firm, acting for Mr Al-Zehairi, said that Car Giant admitted liability for his injuries after judgment was entered against them in the civil courts. 

The claim is for damages for loss of earnings and his rehabilitation.

CarGiant director Michael Holahan told the Evening Standard: “We are sorry that Mr Al-Zehairi has sustained serious injuries. This incident is now the subject of legal proceedings, we are cooperating with those and it would be inappropriate to comment further at this time.”
