Biker sues after T-junction motorcycle crash

A rider from Cumbria has launched a £300,000 motorcycle accident claim after a crash in 2010 left him with physical and psychological injuries. reports that the 47-year-old's High Court case alleges that the driver of a Ford Focus collided with his motorcycle when emerging from a T-junction on the A592 at Staveley-in Cartmel – the driver having failed to observe the oncoming motorbike.

The biker was thrown onto the road, suffering severe personal injuries including fractures to his hip and knee. The writ states that the accident victim is unable to kneel or lift heavy objects and is in considerable pain. He has required a significant amount of time away from work after undergoing several surgical procedures including bone grafting.

Fortunately, the biker's 14-year-old stepson, who was riding pillion at the time of the collision, escaped the accident with only minor personal injuries.

The motorcycle accident has also left him with emotional difficulties and is now prone to outbursts of anger which have caused his marriage to break down.

It has already been established that liability for the road traffic accident lies with the car driver and the biker's personal injury solicitors are now making the motorcycle accident claim for damages totalling £300,000.
