Boy injured in motorcycle accident to claim £300,000

The family of a 12-year-old boy who suffered serious personal injuries in a motorcycle accident have launched a claim for road traffic accident compensation.

The young boy from Chorleywood in Hertfordshire was travelling on his father's Honda Firestorm motorcycle as a pillion passenger when it was involved in a collision with another vehicle.

The boy was rushed to Royal London Hospital after being thrown off the motorcycle and left unconscious with bleeding from his nose and ears. He was later transferred to the specialised paediatric unit of King's College Hospital where he remained for three weeks whilst receiving treatment for his head injuries.

In June 2010 the boy was discharged from hospital, however he continues to suffer from cognitive, communication and behavioural difficulties.

The family have now launched a road traffic accident compensation claim against the driver of the other vehicle, claiming that the collision had been caused by her negligence, which resulted in her driving into the path of the motorcycle.

The woman has already received a fine and four penalty points on her licence after pleading guilty to driving without due care and attention.

It is believed that as a result of the severity of the boy's injuries, the road traffic accident compensation claim awarded could be in the region of £300,000.
