Acting for couriers is always worthwhile. These knights of the road have to treat road traffic accidents as an “occupational hazard” and quite often such clients return to us time again.

In this case the client was riding his 125cc motorcycle in London professionally. He was making progress through the traffic when a driver in a pick up truck got bored of waiting in traffic and performed an unannounced u-turn directly in front of him.

His bike was written off but we managed to get him back on the road some days later when he could ride by sourcing a credit hire bike with our preferred suppliers.

All his losses and the cost of hire were recovered in the case even though we initially faced a strong denial of liability. His injuries which were soft tissue and at multiple sites which led to an award of £3750 as compensation for his pain suffering and loss of amenity.
