The Defendant’s vehicle was two cars in front of Mr S who was on a motorbike. The Defendant had pulled over to the left and so Mr S started to overtake the vehicle directly in front of him, when the Defendant suddenly emerged from the left hand side straight across Mr S’ path. Liability was disputed.

Injuries sustained included: Fractured left ulna; Bennett’s fracture to right thumb; Cracked vertebra to thoracic spine.

Hayley successfully argued for Mr S and he recovered compensation valued at £30,000.
