After getting her two children ready for school she had left for work on her motorbike, as she did every weekday. Lisa had been involved in motorbike racing for a long time and was a very good driver. However, as she approached some traffic and tried to overtake, a car pulled out right in front of her. She tried to brake and avoid the car but there was no room. The car clipped her front wheel, causing her motorbike to crash.
As a result of the crash Lisa suffered multiple fractures to both of her legs and ankles. She also almost had to get her right foot amputated. She is now confined to a wheelchair.
She decided to seek compensation in order to pay for adaptions to her home to allow her to cope independently such as a stairlift, a modified kitchen and bathroom and an automatic car. Lisa agreed a settlement with the driver’s insurer and received over £500,000 in compensation. This compensation will pay for the above home alterations and will also be used for her ongoing medical treatment and care.
