Motorcyclist receives £140,000 after vehicle collision

7th August 2019

A motorcyclist has received £140,000 in a serious injury settlement after another vehicle pulled out of a major road and caused a collision.

Mr A received his compensation after Katie Rutter and Kirsty Thomas successfully took representation of his case.

The serious injury team argued the third party pulled out from a minor road into a major road when it was unsafe to do so.

This ultimately led to the collision.

Consequently, Mr A sustained nasty injuries and spent three weeks in John Radcliffe Hospital, Oxford.

He received surgery for:

  • A right knee fracture.
  • Left wrist fracture.
  • Multiple rib fractures.
  • Left knee soft tissue injuries.
  • Scarring.
Mr A underwent multiple surgeries after the collision

In February 2018, he was re-admitted for another week due to an infection.

Then in March 2018, an additional operation was performed on his leg resulting in another short hospital stay.

Aside from the physical debilitation, Mr A received intensive psychological treatment in the wake of the incident.

Because of this, the accident had a significant impact on his employment and family life, particularity with caring for a young child at home.

Katie and Kirsty managed to obtain additional support by way of a cleaner, taxi account and additional child care.

What’s more, Mr A now receives physiotherapy to aid his recovery.

Since the client’s surgeries, he has started to show real progress.

Mr A has been on a family holiday recently and is back at work enjoying the job he did previously.

As a precaution, he continues to attend appointments in relation to his injuries in the hope of preventing any further infections or complications.

In reflection of the case, Katie Rutter said:

Mr A is a lovely client and we are so happy that we have been able to obtain a good result and settle his case for him.

This will allow him to move on from the whole ordeal and spend some quality time with his wife and child. We wish you all the best in the future.

In conclusion, Mr A told us.

All I can say; my case handlers have been brilliant. Thank you, Katie and Kirsty.

I would like to thank Katie and Kirsty for all their hard work in doing my case, thank you very much. I would definitely recommend Fletchers.
