In 2001, a doctor confirmed Miss Doyle was permanently disabled] Although this was overturned at a later date.
Like everyone else an injury at work and not being able to carry on working is grounds for making such a claim.
She has Been on unpaid leave for 8 years and although the result of the crash may not have left many scars i suppose it could have left her with some mental health problems and the Police force who does not seem to want to take any of the responsibility.
If she had been on full pay for 8 years I could imagine the outcry from others but this was not the case.
I suppose it is a bit like and aerial erector who falls off a roof and does not want to do it again because he is nervous of heights.
Maybe she never got the help from the Police force that she thought that any of their employees should be entitled to.
It will be interesting to see what the outcome will be.
