Why you should engage an expert…

9th Oct 2017

Anyone who rides a motorcycle on the road is more at risk than a car driver, as they are likely to incur more serious injuries following a collision. A motorcycle accident can result in severe injuries that may make a lasting impact on the rest of your life, and the lives of your loved ones.

I have just dealt with such a case, where the client suffered life changing injuries and have worked with them to recover the compensation they needed to overcome the pain and trauma resulting from the incident and the significant consequences it created. The injuries suffered meant we had to plan for the life time of care and support that would be required, together with the loss of income in not being able to work again.

The claims process can be long and very complex, so with many years of experience I was able to guide and advise the client whilst offering immediate and ongoing one to one support.
We were able to work together in establishing the precise circumstances of the accident claim and were able to focus on a settlement which reflected the impact the injury had had on their life.

The case was not just about the compensation agreed for the injuries incurred, it is vital to ensure the very many other areas of expenditure, both in the past and in the future, are costed and agreed. These include the loss of earnings; cost of care and therapy; travel and transport for family members together with household expenses and accommodation amongst many more. It is also important to gain access to the very best rehabilitation support and advice to ensure that the client could get his life on track following the accident.

I was able to secure an early admission of liability, this meant I could then arrange immediate rehabilitation at the insurance company’s expense. This was helped, as I was able assemble the best team of medical and non-medical experts to advance the case.

The final settlement agreed was in the region of £2,500,000, to go some way in helping the client rebuild their much changed life. I was extremely pleased to have been able to use the skill and knowledge I have accumulated over many years to help someone gain such a sizeable sum of money. Working with a client whose circumstances changed radically, through no fault of their own, always means that I want to get the best outcome possible for them – as was the case in this instance.
