Man set for huge payout in car accident claim

A former scaffolder who was left with serious personal injuries following a road accident could be in line for a massive compensation payout, solicitors have revealed.

Neil Nicholson, from Fort William, is in the process of making a car accident claim at London's High Court and a judge has ruled that the driver of the other vehicle involved in the smash was two thirds responsible.

39-year-old Mr Nicholson was knocked off his 500cc Suzuki motorcycle in August 2002 after a car driven by Brenda Willis ploughed into him. She was later found guilty of driving without due care and attention but her insurance company continued to deny liability for the vehicle accident.

Such was the extent of Mr Nicholson's personal injuries that he is now only able to move his neck, left thumb and forefinger and requires 24-hour nursing care.

With the court recognising that Mrs Willis was largely responsible for the accident, a decision concerning the amount of compensation to be paid out should be made in the near future. Personal injury solicitors representing Mr Nicholson in the car accident claim predict that the amount of money awarded will be 'substantial'.
