Motorcycle Accident Claim Settled After Client Damaged Groin

10 January 2014

I have just finalised Personal Injury Compensation for a client who had a motorbike accident caused by an uninsured van driver. The accident damaged his groin and he has been left impotent since the accident. 

He suffered a venous leak which has very poor prospects of successful surgery. The actual diagnosis remained in dispute at the time of settlement. Viagra, Cialis and Vacuum Pumps did not work. The only treatment that worked was Caverject injections, which involved a sharp needle injected into the shaft and this gave the necessary result in approximately 20 minutes.   

Not only does the condition cause Impotency, it also causes Atrophy – to the tune of a one inch shortening of the shaft.

My client received a substantial sum from the MIB and he was very pleased with his settlement.
