the Board has lost the case in Supreme court for several million to the man who was shot in the Lundtoftegade in Copenhagen.
A showdown over several years are ended, that a young man should receive full compensation for the serious injuries he got when he on the street in Copenhagen was hit by a shot in the head.
the Supreme court has overturned the criminal injuries compensation board, which was not willing to give full compensation.
the Man was in april 2013 out to sell marijuana in Lundtoftegade in Nørrebro. He was wearing a safety vest and had a walkie-talkie on themselves. Hashhandlen were controlled by the gang MOB the Grove.
Suddenly he was hit by a shot in the head. The police was later the charge against some suspects, but who were never raised in a criminal case. The offender or the men are therefore unknown.
According to the rules can the Committee deny or reduce compensation to injured persons who themselves have taken a decision to expose oneself to danger - for example by participating in banderelateret crime in a gang war.
the First thought the Copenhagen city Court, that the compensation should be reduced by a third. Then said The high Court, that the man only had to have it half - but these decisions do not, it has now been proven in the Supreme court.
Here lay judges emphasis on the statement from the head of the Copenhagen Police bandeenhed. The wounded was probably a random victim, he was not registered as a gang member and was probably only in the edge of the MOB the Grove. Therefore, there is no basis to say completely or partially, no damage, sounds the message to the board.
the Damage is significant. This applies to both the cognitive abilities and physics. He has for a long time trying to retrain his speech. In addition, he must have help to understand letters and make appointments, it appears.
A doctor has assessed that there has been a sustained and substantial limitation in the ability to take on a regular job. The value is calculated roughly to four million dollars, sitting in the high court's decision.
In addition, the proceedings for compensation or not cost a lot of time and money. The committee condemned in the Supreme court to pay the man's legal fees on the 375.000 dollars.
