According to the Scotsman, Ross Carey was blinded in one eye when he was struck by a piece of metal in a freak incident at the depot of Edinburgh Tours - a firm managed by Lothian Buses - in Seafield in September 2008.
The 26-year-old was repairing a bus but could not wear safety goggles while working as the premises' store room was closed and he felt he could not wait due to pressure being put on him by bosses.
Consequently, when the vehicle's camshaft flew up and hit him in the face, his left eye was unprotected and was permanently injured.
Mr Carey has since struggled with severe depression and now lives in Australia, but after taking legal action against Lothian Buses - a company with more than 2,000 employees - has received a personal injury compensation settlement.
