Motorcyclist gets over three million pound compensation
A young motorcyclist was awarded a three million pound settlement following an accident that led to amputation of his leg and the lower part of his arm. The biker was hit by a car, which was being driven by a drunk driver. A specialist injury lawyer in Cleator dealt with the case and it was revealed that the injured man had no recollection of what actually happened.
The young bike rider was working as a chef when the accident happened therefore following the accident he was unable to work. On the day of the accident the man had finished work at about four in the afternoon. Following the accident he did not even remember leaving work and getting onto his bike to head home. The drunk driver that caused the accident was imprisoned as a result of the accident on the grounds of drunk driving and other offences. The accident happened as a result of the drunk driver overtaking another road user he crossed the road into the path of the oncoming bike.
The man that was riding the motorbike sustained some major injuries and when his family arrived at the scene it looked very bad and his family feared the worst. The first thing that the man remembers is waking up in the hospital attached to the ventilator that was helping him to breathe. What the man did not know is that when he woke up it was a whole nine days after the accident had happened.
It is fair to say that this was a pretty horrific road traffic accident and ordeal for the client. Following the man regaining consciousness he had to spend more than six months in hospital during which time he had to undergo a wide range of skin graft operations and other surgical procedures and this was followed by a rehabilitation program. As well as the injuries that led to the man needing his leg and lower arm amputated he had also sustained serious damage to his shoulder and despite operations he was left with numbness in his right hand side. The compensation money that injury lawyers in Cleator was able to get for the man made things a bit easier to cope with as it helped towards the cost of all the treatment and rehabilitation that was required.
