The claimant broke several vertebrae in his back in a motorcycle accident, and by all accounts the initial hospital records suggested he would have a difficult recovery. Fortunately, there was no spinal cord injury, and the claimant was able to get back to work before too long. Despite this, we continued to pursue compensation for his injury and loss of earnings. At the time of the accident, he was very recently separated from his partner and sleeping on a friend’s couch – they had also been unable to come to any sort of custody agreement. The cases settled for over £100,000 and the difference this made to the client’s life was immeasurable – he was able to purchase his own home where his children would be able to come and stay with him.
