Elbow and wrist injuries payout

A 57-year-old rider from Cheshire has secured a five-figure sum of injury compensation for a motorbike crash which left him suffering a broken wrist and a broken elbow.

It is understood that the Oxford-educated accountant had only recently returned to motorcycling after a two-decade break from riding, during which time he concentrated on raising a family.

The incident in question occurred when the claimant was riding through North Wales and was in collision with a vehicle being driven by a Canadian holidaymaker.

Despite the motorbike crash occurring at a relatively slow speed in a built-up tourist spot, the rider was knocked off his motorcycle and fell heavily, breaking his wrist and elbow.

A Manchester-based no win, no fee solicitor represented the man's claim and succeeded in securing a payout, thought to be between £20,000 and £30,000.

The settlement was reached out-of-court in negotiations between the liable insurer and the claimant's legal team.

Speaking after resolution of the motorbike crash case, the claimant said that it was a huge relief to have secured a payout and expressed his satisfaction that the case did not have to go to court.
