Motorcycle accident case value settled for £400, 000

16 September 2009

Our expert motorcycle accident specialists have good experience in negotiating high settlement values for clients with motorbike injury claims. In one case the widow and children of a Police Officer brought a claim for damages arising out of his death in a motorcycle accident.

He was approaching a bend in the road on his motorbike, and driving towards him was a van that would have passed him on the opposite side. He was hit by a car that was travelling behind the van, which turned across his path; killing him almost instantly.

The third party driver was uninsured and also declared himself bankrupt. Permission from the Court was obtained to issue and serve against the bankrupt. The Motor Insurers Bureau dealt with the claim.

The driver was convicted and our Solicitor’s settled the case for £400 000.
