Motorcyclist secures £1m damages settlement

Motorcyclist secures £1m damages settlement

Personal injury compensation worth £1 million has been granted to a motorcyclist who was left paralysed following a road traffic accident.

According to the Manchester Evening News, Kenny Jordan cannot move from the chest down after he was thrown into a bollard when he collided with a car while riding in Middleton, Greater Manchester, in May 2004.

The 54-year-old was subsequently comatose for two weeks before then being kept in hospital for eight months to recover due to the extent of his injuries.

Since the accident, Mr Jordan has been confined to a wheelchair and he has now secured a seven-figure damages sum for his ordeal.

Back in 2005, he was awarded compensation worth £512,000 and this has now been supplemented with an additional instalment of £500,000.

"The extra money will mean I'll be able to afford the care I need for the rest of my life," he told the news source.
