Compensation to be sought for man left paralysed in road accident
The family of a man who was left paralysed after a motorbike accident are to seek compensation on his behalf.
In September last year, 62-year-old Anthony Law was riding his bike when driver Kate McCullock collided with him, the Leicester Mercury reports.
As a result of the impact, Mr Law is unable to move from the waist down and has spent the last four months in hospital. His injuries included a broken back.
He was taken to Leicester Royal Infirmary and then transferred to a specialist unit at the Northern General Hospital - which has more than 1,100 beds and employs over 6,000 staff.
In a recent development, Ms McCullock pleaded guilty to driving without due care and attention and was banned from driving for a year.
A statement read out in court by a representative of Mr Law said: "My life has been completely turned upside down.
"I used to enjoy car and bike maintenance. I get very emotional knowing I will be unable to do the things I love doing."
