Motorcycle Rider Receives a Settlement of $380,000 After Colliding with Car that did Not Stop at a Give Way Sign

Our client was riding his motorcycle through Annandale when a car did not yield at a give way sign and made a right-hand turn in front of his motorcycle.

Our client was taken to hospital following the accident and had sustained multiple injuries to his neck, back, shoulders, wrists. He also suffered from psychological injuries from the accident including nightmares, flashbacks, inability to concentrate on tasks.

Our client worked in the building and construction industry doing physical labour work, and had time off work following the accident and was not able to return to his pre-injury duties for some time.

We were able to prepare a claim for him by obtaining all of his treating doctors records and hospital records and arrange a medicolegal assessments with our doctors to assess his whole person impairment for his physical injuries as well as his psychological injuries.

Our client injuries were ultimately assessed by the motor accidents authority panel doctors as being under the 11% whole person impairment threshold, but due to significant ongoing difficulties with the physical nature of his work, we were able to prepare a strong economic loss claim.

We attempted to resolve the claim at a settlement conference with the insurer, but the offers made by the insurer were less than expected, and the claimant proceeded to an assessment hearing before an arbitrator.

On the day of the assessment hearing, the insurer increased their offers significantly and we were able to resolve the case for $380,000.
