Motorcyclist receives £55,000 in serious injury settlement after A-road collision
A 62-year-old male has received a £55,500 serious injury settlement after a vehicle that was travelling in the opposite direction turned into his path and caused a serious collision.
Keith Robinson, from Lincolnshire was riding his motorcycle along the A46 Caistor bypass when the third party, who was travelling in the opposite direction, turned into his path. The other driver accepted liability for the accident.
As a result of the collision, Mr Robinson suffered an open fracture to right tibia & fibula (right leg) with skin damage, dislocation of the right little finger, soft tissue injuries and lacerations to both knees.
Mr Robinson who was a self-employed Maintenance Operative, was unable to work for 11 months after the accident and was never able to return to his normal duties, partially as a result of the injuries suffered in the accident.
Fletchers Solicitor’s Serious Injury Lawyer, Michelle Heyes represented Mr Robinson and was able to assist in settling the case in January 2019.
Michelle said: “Assisting Keith in pursuing his claim after suffering such a nasty injury was real pleasure and I wish him all the very best for the future”.
Speaking in reflection of the case experience, Mr Robinson said:
“Fletchers Solicitors have given me Peace of mind and I can pay my mortgage over the next year.”
