Paralysed motorcyclist seeking £500k

Paralysed motorcyclist seeking £500k

Life-changing injuries sustained during a road traffic accident have resulted in a motorcyclist seeking damages of £500,000.

According to the Plymouth Herald, Richard Mo is taking legal action against Plymouth Citibus after he was left paralysed during a collision with a bus in Devonport in April 2010.

The 23-year-old's High Court writ explains how he was en route to City College Plymouth when a number 36 bus run by Plymouth Citybus hit him while they were travelling on Paradise Road.

Consequently, he suffered serious spinal injuries and two fractured shoulders, which have resulted in him being confined to a wheelchair for the rest of his life.

"He is severely handicapped on the labour market ... he is unlikely to work beyond the age of 50. His life expectancy is reduced," the document added.

This comes after the Brent & Kilburn Times reported that Devbai Patel has been awarded a six-figure damages sum after she suffered brain damage in a road accident in 2008.
