Policeman who lost leg hopes to win in Court

Screen Shot 2014-09-23 at 6.40.36 PMWrong doing will not go unpunished that was the sentiment expressed by attorney at-law Joseph Harmon as he shed some light on the 10 million dollar law suit he filed against policeman Kenneth Bahadur, the  Commissioner of Police and the Attorney General.

Harmon is representing injured policeman Samuel Elvis who lost his leg during an accidental shooting at Eve Leary a few months ago.

He said he expects the Attorney General to respond to the writ he filed in the High Court.

Elvis is claiming damages in excess of 10 million dollars for personal injury, loss and damages suffered.

A police corporal at the Joint services base/ JASAG at Eve Leary accidentally shot Elvis on the 20th of March this year.

Elvis said he remembered the patrol returning from an operation and was on standby. He recalled seeing the corporal cranking his weapon but paid little mind since according to him the corporal was well trained and experienced.

The best efforts of doctors at the Woodlands Hospital could not prevent the amputation of the young man’s leg.

He then blamed the doctors at the GPHC for not administering the right treatment during the early stages of his injuries. His colleagues rushed Elvis to the GPHC after he was shot.
