Motorcyclist seeks £300k compensation after accident

Motorcyclist seeks £300k compensation after accident

A motorcyclist who lost the use of his right arm following a road traffic accident last November is claiming more than £300,000 in compensation.

Pawan Aulakh suffered severe injuries including problems with his arm, leg, head and back during the incident in which Hannah Palmer pulled out in front of him as he rode his vehicle, the Croydon Guardian reports.

Mr Aulakh has been unable to work since the accident and stated that he needs a carer to help him with simple daily tasks and has depression due to these "life-changing injuries".

"I'm not able to use my right arm, I'm not even able to get into the bath," said the 30-year-old.

He added that he was unsure whether he would return to his job as a civil servant and has now issued a writ to the High Court - which handles all legal claims of such high value - seeking unlimited damages of more than £300,000 for his ordeal.

Ms Palmer earlier this year pleaded guilty to driving without due care and attention.
