Personal injury caused by motorbike accident

Kate Sweeney, Partner and Head of Personal Injury at Stephensons, recently settled a very complex case with substantial damages involved.

The client contacted his insurer, GLP, who then referred the case to Kate. She is adept at handling injury cases involving head injuries having practised as a personal injury solicitor for more than 15 years.

The client is a member of a bike club who suffered several personal injuries after a crash involving a large number of motorcyclists who were driving in tandem. The crash was likened to a domino effect with many drivers suffering injuries.

This case was interesting as all the drivers are insured by the same insurer. Experts’ reports were obtained from four different specialists and the client had injuries to his neck, back, leg and head. Liability was swiftly admitted following the Police report into the incident.

The client said: “The accident has changed my life forever and I am relieved that the case has successfully concluded and a settlement has been achieved that will assist me and my family in dealing with the change of lifestyle which the accident has led to.

“I would like to thank Kate Sweeney for her determined approach to the case. She provided a professional service which included an initial personal visit to my home to obtain the facts of the case, and she was always available to answer any queries and provide expertise.”
