Megan Lambert, a Motorcycle Accident Lawyer at Osbornes Law, recently settled a claim for a motorcyclist whose lower left leg was crushed when another motorbike hit him from behind.

Securing Fair Compensation After a Motorcycle Accident

The Defendant’s insurers make an initial pre-medical offer of £5,500, which later increased to £10,000 and then £15,000. All these offers were rejected by the motorcyclist as Megan advised that, given the nature of his injuries and the financial losses suffered, his claim could be worth much more.

Medicolegal reports were obtained from a lower limb orthopaedic specialist who prepared 4 reports in total on the motorcyclist’s lower leg injury, following various scans and investigations. Unfortunately, the medical expert advised that the motorcyclist had an abnormality of the mid-calf and 3 years on from the accident, he still had pain with activity, including prolonged standing and swelling of the left leg. He further suffered from pain when standing on ladders, a large part of his employment, when riding a bike and walking his dog. It was subsequently concluded that it was unlikely the motorcyclist’s function would improve beyond this current state for the foreseeable future and was unfortunately permanent.

Court proceedings were issued and the motorcyclist’s claim subsequently settled upon the acceptance of the Defendant’s insurer’s offer of £40,000. This settlement included not only a portion for his injuries but also for his financial losses to include loss of earnings, damaged property, medical expenses and future loss of earnings capacity.
