Motorcyclist injured in collision receives £250,000 compensation

A motorcyclist who was seriously injured in an accident when he was only 18 years old has been awarded £250,000 in compensation.

The young man was crossing a roundabout when his machine collided with a car which had failed to give way. He fractured his scaphoid, a small bone in the wrist joint. He underwent bone grafting surgery and internal fixation but still found it difficult to perform simple tasks such as opening jars or using a knife.

He took legal action on the basis that the car driver had been negligent in failing to give way on the roundabout. Liability was admitted.

Compensation of £250,000 was agreed in an out-of-court settlement. This was to cover such things as suffering and loss of amenity, future loss of earnings and future care costs.
