Motorcyclist Awarded Substantial Compensation After Collision with Van

Liz Hoskin was tasked with obtaining compensation for a client after a van collided with his motorcycle and caused a number of severe injuries.

While working as a motorcycle dispatch rider in London, our client exited the underpass at Hyde Park Corner but was struck by a van, which was parked to the nearside before making a U-turn to go in the opposite direction.

The police were involved and took action against the van driver for driving without due care and attention, leading to the insurers of the van accepting liability for the incident.

Liz obtained medical evidence for our client, who sustained serious injuries to his left leg and ankle, treated with an external fixator, as well as suffering damage to his left foot, bruising and headaches, combined with non-physical injuries.

The client was self-employed and was unable to work with very restricted income following the accident. In addition, he also required a great deal of care from his family and friends once he was discharged from hospital.

As a result, Liz succeeded in obtaining a substantial payout for the client’s injuries, loss of earnings, other losses and as protection against future problems with his health due to the nature of the damage.
