Help and compensation means motorcyclist injured in East Lothian can regain his independence

Man looking out to sea

Digby Brown Solicitors represented Mr M, who was riding his Yamaha DT125RE motorcycle, between Haddington and Gladsmuir, East Lothian when a car coming in the opposite direction turned across Mr M’s path, blocking his lane of the road.

He suffered significant orthopaedic injuries as a result of the accident.

Police advised motorcyclist he was most likely at fault for accident

The police who investigated the accident advised our client  that as he was a motorcyclist, the accident was most likely his fault, advising him not to make a motorcycle accident claim.

Unhappy with appointed solicitors via his legal expenses insurance

Mr M was appointed solicitors under his legal expenses insurance.

He was unhappy at his claim being dealt with by a paralegal rather than a qualified lawyer.

Digby Brown took over his motorcycle accident claim

Mr M contacted Digby Brown, and we were able to take over his motorcycle accident claim for him.

Lawyers in our specialist Motorcycle Law department carried out full investigations into the claim.

Motorcycle lawyers secure admission of liability and interim payments

Our motorcycle lawyers obtained an admission of liability from the third party insurers, and interim payments for Mr M.

Interim payments are typically secured in cases where liability is admitted and insurers agree to make a payment of compensation before the final compensation is negotiated.

Raised motorcycle accident claim in court for best outcome

Our motorcycle lawyers were committed to getting the very best outcome for our client and raised the case in the Court of Session.

More than £350,000 compensation for motorcycle accident

Four weeks before the final hearing, we were able to negotiate a settlement worth more than £350,000 for Mr M.

In addition to compensation for his pain and suffering and loss of earnings, the settlement included the cost of modifications to enable Mr M to return to riding motorcycles and regain his independence.
