Paul Kerry from Glasgow was involved in a serious motorcycle accident when he was driving his bike from London to Winchester.
It was a cold and rainy day and in a classic case of a car driver not seeing a motorcycle rider because their view was blocked by the windscreen pillars ("Sorry mate, I didn't see you"), he was hit by a car at a junction when the driver pulled out too early.
He was knocked from his bike and crushed underneath while the wheels were still spinning. Knocked unconscious, his neck and spine were badly damaged. Concerned passers-by telephoned the emergency services and an ambulance arrived at the scene of the road traffic accident within minutes.
Paul was taken to hospital were he stayed for four months. His head was luckily protected by his helmet but his back, nervous system and limbs were badly affected by the motorcycle accident. He was told that he needed physiotherapy and emotional therapy to restore his mobility and recover from the serious personal injuries sustained in the accident.
After treatment, his limbs were still affected and he found it difficult to write and move normally. He had flashbacks and nightmares and his concentration and sleeping patterns were affected. He required further treatment over the course of the next year and eventually was able to recover full movement in his arms and legs.
Whilst on the road to recovery, Paul decided to make a compensation claim against the car driver for the personal injuries he had suffered in the motorcycle accident. He searched the internet and, discovering YouClaim, decided we were the people to help him.
On our panel of personal injury solicitors was a motorbike accident claim specialist and he pursued Paul's case, eventually winning him just over £20,000.
Riders on two wheels often get given the cold shoulder, despite the fact that motorcycle riding is usually extremely tricky and complicated to execute. Car drivers usually blame them and point an accusing finger, saying they caused the accident, even if they were driving carefully and the car driver failed to see them in time.
Motorcycle riders should not have to put up with pain and loss of earnings on account of the poor driving skills of a car driver. If the motorcycle accident you were involved in was not your fault, you should be in a position to make a personal injury compensation claim.
