  • Overview

    pecialist personal injury lawyers based at Thomson Snell & Passmore’s Tunbridge Wells and Dartford (Thames Gateway) Offices, has secured £90,000 for a young man who suffered severe injuries in a motorcycle collision.

    The claimant was a 17 year old man who was riding his motorcycle along the seafront in Hastings with his friend (the defendant) who was another motorcyclist.

    As the claimant followed behind the defendant, the defendant began to slow down. The claimant then overtook the defendant; as the claimant overtook, suddenly, and without warning, the defendant swerved sharply to his offside and into the path of the claimant. The claimant had to apply his brakes and swerve to the right, in order to avoid collision. The back wheel of his motorcycle locked up and he began to skid. His motorcycle narrowly missed a parked white van, mounted the pavement, and collided with the metal railings on the seafront.

    The man suffered severe injuries as a result of the defendant’s negligence. He suffered an extremely severe comminuted open fracture of the right tibia and fibula and compartment syndrome. He also suffered a soft tissue injury to his spine and a fracture of his vertebra. He required multiple surgeries and a skin graft. He has also suffered significant psychiatric injury in the form of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).

    The team were able to obtain a compensation award of over £90,000 for the claimant, to compensate him for his pain, and suffering, and to pay for his future treatment needs. This also covered the cost of the damage to the claimant’s motorbike.
