    had recently??

    I am wondering if I have used "had recently" correctly?

    Andrew was working as a technician when he was injured in a car accident earning $20 an hour. He had recently been given this job with an increase in salary from $18 an hour to $20 an hour.

    Re: had recently??

    Your use of "had recently" is perfect, but your first sentence has a problem with word order.

    "Andrew was working as a technician earning $20 an hour when he was injured in a car accident" makes sense, but in your version the information about Andrew's rate of pay is misplaced.
