Michael Schumacher’s lawyer has revealed the extent of the racing driver’s injuries after his devastating skiing accident three years ago.
Felix Damm was speaking in court in Germany on behalf of the Schumacher family who are suing a magazine over a story that claimed the 47-year-old star could walk again.
Schumacher, who was crowned Formula 1 world champion a total of seven times, suffered a head injury while skiing in the French Alps in 2013.
He was airlifted to Grenoble Hospital where doctors performed two life-saving operations and placed him in a medically induced coma.
A cover story in the German magazine Bunte claimed that Schumacher could walk again – but Damm strongly denied the star had made such a miraculous recovery.
According to the Mirror, Damm said Schumacher ‘cannot walk’ and could not even stand with the help of specialist therapists.
The Schumacher family is said to have launched the suit arguing the right to the former champion’s privacy and a verdict is due in October.
