Motorcyclist suffered multiple orthopaedic and spinal injuries after car crash
Joe was in his mid-30s when he was involved in an accident when a car turned into the path of his motorcycle which was written off.
He was admitted to hospital where scans and x-rays were obtained before he was transferred to a different hospital for surgery.
Joe sustained multiple orthopaedic injuries including spinal injuries and he also suffered scaphoid fractures in both of his wrists, which required extensive surgery.
Joe experienced psychological problems since the accident including low mood and anxiety.
Potter Rees Dolan was successful in recovering damages in the region of £160,000.00 gross of interim payments and benefits.
Helen Shaw acted for Joe and commented:
Joe was fortunately able to benefit from early and extensive rehabilitation funded by the relevant insurers pursuant to the Rehabilitation Code and to include privately funded surgery and physiotherapy, which helped to expedite his progress and ultimately the settlement.
