Ex-soldier Claims Damages After Being Shot in Eye During Paintball
- Updated: January 29, 2012 at 7:01 PM
A former soldier is suing a Scottish paintball firm for up to £400,000 after he was shot in the face and lost the sight in one eye. Allan Weir was shot from less than 6ft away by a paintball pellet travelling at around 280ft per second, causing his right eyeball to “burst”. Weir, 28, who has two children, has struggled to find work since the horrific incident and says he still suffers intense pain from the injury.
