Woman makes personal injury claim after bike smash

A Scottish woman is making a personal injury claim after a road traffic accident resulted in her having her right leg amputated above the knee.

29-year-old Samantha Baird from Peterhead had been riding her Suzuki motorbike when a car hit her head on in October 2004.

The driver of the car, Graham Cowie, had been attempting to overtake a lorry when the vehicle accident occurred and he suffered minor personal injuries as a result of the smash. 47-year-old Cowie was later fined 750 for dangerous driving.

Ms Baird, who has been fitted with an artificial limb, is now suing him for 1.5 million and hopes a successful personal injury claim will enable her to move from her fourth-floor flat to a specially adapted home.
