Biker seeks road traffic accident compensation from schoolgirls

A motorcyclist is seeking road traffic accident compensation from two schoolgirls who he blames for causing the crash which has left him with severe personal injuries.

The accident took place in 2008 when the 60-year-old man was riding his motorbike through Hackbridge in Greater London. The two 15-year-old girls had just got off their school bus, but rather than crossing the road at the pedestrian crossing, situated a little way along the road, they attempted to cross in between the slow moving traffic.

A High Court writ revealed that the biker had just driven round a bend in the street and was travelling within the speed limit when he saw the two girls in the road. He braked and swerved to avoid hitting them, however, the incident caused him to fall from the bike into the road and he was hit by an oncoming Ford Transit van.

He suffered severe injuries in the collision which have left him paralysed and quadriplegic.

The writ accuses the two girls of negligence after failing to cross the road safely, and states that the man is seeking more than £300,000 in road traffic accident compensation for the injuries he has suffered.
