Accident compensation news

Injured biker's six-figure claims rejected

A motorcyclist, who had his leg shattered in a traffic collision with a tractor, has had his accident compensation claim rejected by the courts.

The 41-year-old made the claim after suffering devastating injuries to his leg in the accident which happened in June 2006 in Cambridgeshire.

The claimant now faces chronic pain from his injured leg and could face amputation after contracting osteomyelitis, an insidious infection of the bone.

The crash occurred after the rider collided with the tractor while riding his 1000cc motorbike.

The judge ruled that the motorbiker was "the author of his own misfortune" and was entirely to blame for the motorbike accident due to the excessive speeds at which he was travelling.

The businessman was hoping to receive a six-figure sum in accident compensation for his injuries, however he will not be receiving any following the judge's ruling.
