Man who suffered severe brain injuries in crash fights for £300k

A 36-year-old motorcyclist who suffered severe traumatic brain injury in a road accident is claiming damages of £300,000.

David Curtis is suing motorist Colin Harlock, whose car collided with the motorbike Mr Curtis was riding, the Lynn News reports.

A writ issued at London's High Court, also known as the Royal Courts of Justice, states that Mr Harlock had pulled out onto the road on which Mr Curtis was travelling, causing the two vehicles to collide.

The writ accuses him of negligently failing to look left before manoeuvring his vehicle.

It is alleged that the motorcyclist suffered severe multiple injuries as a result of the crash and has been left with permanent physical, cognitive and behavioural disabilities.

The writ adds that he will have to rely on others for the rest of his life and will never again be able to work.
