Court of Appeal rejects claim made by crash victim

A motorcyclist who suffered life-changing personal injuries in a crash has been told that he will not receive any road traffic accident compensation.

The man had been riding his 750cc motorbike when an HGV crashed into him in April 2009. He had been 30-years-old at the time of the accident and suffered personal injuries to his leg. His injuries were so severe the limb had to be immediately amputated just above the knee.

He is now dependent on a wheelchair and still has to go to hospital once a week for physiotherapy. He also requires extensive care from his partner.

Since the crash took place the man has been fighting for compensation and last year was told by a judge at Cambridge County Court that he could be entitled to hundreds of thousands of pounds.

However, insurers for the lorry's operator launched an appeal and judges at London's Court of Appeal have since dismissed the case.

The man from Soham in Cambridgeshire had worked as a lorry driver at the time of the accident but has been unable to return to work since the crash took place. He is now unsure how he will afford to live without any road traffic accident compensation.
