Claim Example For Arm Injuries from a Motorbike Accident

A motorcyclist, aged 32 years, was set to fly out for a holiday when, the day before he was due to travel, he was involved in a road traffic accident. The biker was thrown from his motorbike trying to avoid a car that pulled out on him, this resulted in:

  • Arm Injuries (Abrasions)
  • Leg Injuries (Abrasions)

The biker still went ahead with the holiday when, during the flight, he began to suffer pain in the injured areas – he visited a GP upon landing and was given a neck brace and painkillers. Once he returned home, the pain had mostly resolved after a few months. Damages and compensation for this case were valued at £3,500.
