Compensation helps semi-paralysed biker return to road

A 54-year-old man from Yorkshire has provided inspiration to motorbike accident victims by getting back on the road, despite being partially paralysed in a 2005 collision with a car.

Although he is no longer on two wheels, the former modification technician says that he has been liberated by his purchase of a motor-trike.

"At one point the vision of the future was pretty grim. We've never had any experience of anything like this so I thought the prospect of making life anything like it was before the accident was pure fantasy," he said.
"I had been motorcycling since I was 17 and it has always been a big part of both our lives since we were married. Getting back on two wheels was a no-no because of problems with my balance and the lack of strength in my legs. "Initially I didn't fancy the idea of buying a trike but I started thinking about going out again for runs with friends and then I found a model based on a Triumph motorbike. "I went for a test ride and came back with a huge smile on my face and I haven't looked back since. Last year we did a bit of touring and went up to Scotland. It was absolutely brilliant."

Of course, all this would not have been possible without motorcycle injury compensation. Not only did it help him purchase the trike, it also helped pay for a specially adapted home.

Meanwhile, the personal injury solicitor who represented the 54-year-old's motorbike accident claim described her former client's story as "inspirational".

"His accident left him with very serious injuries but he has fully embraced the idea of living life to the full. Just because someone has suffered an injury like this doesn't mean they can't lead a fulfilling life," she said.
