Biker secures further payout for injuries

Solicitors have helped a paralysed biker secure a further £500,000 motorcycle accident compensation seven years after he was awarded only £512,000 in an original claim.

Insurers for the driver implicated in the 2004 crash, paid out the sum after the injured man's team of personal injury solicitors allegedly encouraged him to accept a settlement sum which was insufficient to provide adequate ongoing care for the rest of his life.

The accident has left the 54-year-old former biker unable to move from the chest down and reliant on a wheelchair to get around.

Now, the Manchester man has sued his original team of lawyers for their professional negligence in the handling of his claim for motorcycle accident compensation.

Following the award he said, "I used to be a very active biker but my life's been changed completely following the accident. If it wasn't for the biker community I don't know what I'd have done.

"Obviously because of my injuries I need care and help and have had to make many adjustments. The extra money will mean I'll be able to afford the care I need for the rest of my life."
