Irwin Mitchell’s specialised personal team injury helped a woman after she was struck by a motorcycle while on her way to pick her children up from school.
Our client was on her way to collect her children from school when she decided to cross a dual carriageway. She looked both ways before crossing and then entered the dual carriageway. As she was about to step back onto the pavement she was suddenly struck by a motorbike.
She was immediately taken to hospital and was diagnosed with a fracture to the right heel, soft tissue injuries throughout her body, but more seriously she was advised that she required an emergency procedure to her arm due to the loss of blood. The next morning the surgery was successfully performed to save her arm.
After the accident our client began to suffer from nightmares, flashbacks, anxiousness when near roads or travelling in a motor vehicle. As a result of her injuries our client was required to use a zimmer frame following by crutches two months later. She required assistance with personal care and household chores.
Post accident the woman permanently suffers from pain in her heel and this continues to cause further complications to her health. The woman’s did recover from the injury to her left arm but this still remains weaker in strength to the right.
She decided to contact Irwin Mitchell’s specialised personal injury team and one of our experienced solicitors was able to deal with her claim. The Motorcyclist denied liability alleging that our client contributed to the accident by her own negligence. After extensive negotiations we were able to secure the client £17,600 in compensation in an out of court settlement.
