Motorbike accident victim is awarded high level of compensation
We recently helped a client following a motorbike accident
where he suffered serious injuries
Our client was riding his motorbike when a vehicle approaching from the opposite direction overtook a vehicle and clipped his foot. He suffered a serious fracture injury to his foot
and was consequently retired from his job on grounds of ill health. Our client has managed to find another job but it is likely he will need surgery in the future.
The other driver involved in this accident was untraced and we had to pursue the personal injury claim
with the Motor Insurers Bureau (MIB)
in order to try and claim compensation for our client's motorbike accident.
Simpson Millar said: "We had to convince the MIB that the injury occurred as our client stated and that he did not contribute to the accident by riding his bike 'with his foot in the position that it was'. We had to obtain evidence to support this. "
"The initial medical evidence obtained by the MIB was unclear and so we argued that it was necessary for us to obtain our own evidence funded by the MIB which was very supportive."
Our client received a compensation award of £84,500
following his motorbike accident
