Our client was just under 18 at time of collision. Riding normally when Third Party pull out in front however this was disputed as Third Party states our client was overtaking stationary traffic.
Having taken instructions we disagreed with the allegations deciding to back our client (assisted by his litigation friend, Mum).
We obtained independent evidence of the damage to the bike (KTM Duke125) and was found to be beyond economical repair so this value was added to the claim along with some replacement hire bike costs and other expenses including getting an independent report on the nasty injuries sustained.
Our experience paid off for the client as being bikers we understood the circumstances of the incident and where the Third Party was wrong in their allegations surrounding the circumstances and who was at fault. After a period of negotiation, where we maintained our solid and robust position we secured an admission of fault from the Third Party insurers swiftly followed by an interim payment for the KTM 125 Duke and shortly after a payment for the other losses including the personal injury.
Sorrymate doing what it does best, everyday. Taking on cases that insurers don’t want to pay and winning.
