Writ served for severe multiple injuries

A motorcyclist who suffered severe multiple injuries in a 2006 collision is seeking a six-figure sum of road accident compensation from the insurers of the driver who hit him.

A road accident compensation writ has been issued at London's High Court by the man's personal injury solicitor detailing the reasons behind his claim.

In the writ it is alleged that the defendant, who was driving a Ford Fiesta at the time of the crash, failed to look left and drove out of an intersection when it was unsafe to do so.

The claimant suffered from a brain injury as a result of the collision and now suffers from cognitive, physical and behavioural difficulties. As a result, he will never again be able to lead an independent life.

The 36-year-old's lawyer is believed to be asking for damages to be paid in instalments rather than in a single lump sum payout and considers the motorcycle accident claim to be worth more than £300,000.

It may be of benefit to the man's road accident compensation claim that the defendant has already received a driving ban as well as a £500 fine for his part in the collision after pleading guilty to driving without due care and attention.
