Mother sues conman cabbie after ex-footballer falls 60 feet and suffers brain-damage.

A conman cabbie is being sued after an ex-footballer from Huyton was dumped at the roadside and subsequently fell 60 feet from a flyover.

Former Chester City midfielder, Neil Carroll, 30,  was a victim of conman cab driver Michael Taylor.

Taylor swapped drunk Carrolls cash card for a fake cars,  memorised his PIN number and abandoned him. 

Carroll then wandered off, but fell from the Rocket flyover, sustaining brain damage, as Taylor was stealing £250 from his bank account.

Taylor, who was subsequently jailed for the offence, now faces being sued for £200,000 by Neil Carrolls mother and full-time carer, Cath Carroll.

As a result of his injuries, Mr Carroll now lives in a specially modified home fitted with ramps and hoists with his partner Kathryn Dyer, 31. 

Cath Carrolls legal representatives have said that because of Taylor's actions, have left Mr Carroll needing 24-hour care and is at risk of epileptic fits. Ms Carroll stated that Neil is not walking and talking, but he's not on life support.

Neil had spent 119 hours in hospital before he was considered out of danger as well as spending four weeks in intensive care.

According to the Liverpool Echo almost all of his treatment is privately funded.

Taylor swindled drunk passengers by frogmarching them to a cash machine. He would then make the withdrawal for them, before switching their bank card for another victim's. 

He recieved eight months in Jail for the offences in 2013.

According to a relative of Taylor's he has been suffering from depression since his release from prison.
