Owen’s Claim for Leg Injuries after a Motorbike Accident
Owen suffered serious leg injuries in a motorcycle accident in December 2006. Owen achieved 100% of his compensation which settled shortly afterwards for a little over £300,000.
The accident involved Owen on his motorbike and a car. However, the car driver vehemently disputed liability throughout the case. The car driver alleged that Owen entered cross hatched road markings to overtake a vehicle turning left into a petrol station. Owen denied this. He said that he only entered the cross hatched markings in an attempt to avoid colliding with the defendant’s vehicle. He did this because the defendant’s vehicle was emerging from the petrol station intending to turn right, across his path.
Owen instructed our Personal Injury solicitors and we helped him make a claim for compensation. Just before the trial, the Defendants put forward an offer on liability of 60/40 in their client’s favour. Owen took our advice and rejected the offer. The matter proceeded to a liability only trial where Owen won outright without any finding of contributory negligence. The Defendants appealed, repeating their offer of 60/40 in their client’s favour. This again was rejected. The Court of Appeal dismissed the Defendant’s appeal and Owen achieved 100% of his compensation which settled shortly afterwards for a little over £300,000.
