Acting for a young motorcycle rider we were delighted to have helped him achieve a settlement of a very nasty motorcycle accident in which he sustained a broken ankle.
He was riding his 125cc motorcycle along a line of parked cars when one of those vehicles emerged directly into collision with him literally sending him “cartwheeling” down the road. In our experience we were amazed at how he managed to escape more serious and possibly life threatening injuries.
Despite the fracture being serious, the client actually made a good recovery so his award was limited accordingly. Still a good outcome for a totally innocent young rider and just goes to show that not all young bikers are to blame when an accident happens.
With the recent rise in car insurance making it virtually impossible for young drivers to get insurance – more and more are turning to two wheels. Unfortunately we are seeing an increase in injured young bikers.
