Support for biker who was injured on way to work

“Minster Law provided so much support throughout my case, which really helped to ease the pressure. My solicitor and his team couldn’t do enough for me – they exceeded my expectations on the service they provided.”

Freddy was riding his daily route to work when another motorist failed to see him and pulled out in his path. Freddy collided with the car and was thrown over the bonnet, landing in the middle of the road.

As a result of the accident, Freddy faces future medical complications

Freddy sustained life-changing injuries including the internal rupture of his spleen, which he later had to have removed. As a result of this surgery, he is now at risk of future medical complications, including hernias. The accident also left him with multiple fractures to his arms and legs as well as unsightly scarring as a result of numerous operations and soft tissue damage.

Our extensive experience meant that we were able to give Freddy the vital support he needed from the outset

Minster Law fought to secure an interim payment to provide Freddy and his family with financial stability while he was unable to work during his recovery. A vocational case manager, appointed by Minster Law, was later able to assist him when he was dismissed from his job as a cleaner on medical grounds.

“The part that Minster Law played in Freddy’s case was just the beginning of a road to recovery for him. I’m glad that we were able to help Freddy and enable him to put the collision behind him.”

Minster Law solicitor, Philip Austick, who led Freddy’s case ensured that he felt supported at every stage of his claim. The team made sure that Freddy was kept up-to-date with his case through face-to-face meetings, and full guidance was provided through the litigation process.

Freddy’s final settlement enabled him to access private healthcare and has given him financial security for any future medical treatments. Although Freddy felt unable to return to two wheels, his settlement also enabled him to take driving lessons as an alternative means of transport. Above all, the support he received from Minster Law has provided him with a more stable future.
