Motorcyclist secures settlement with support from Sintons


A motorcyclist left seriously injured in a collision with another motorbike has secured a settlement with support from specialists at Sintons.

The man, a provisional licence holder with over seven years’ riding experience, was injured whilst turning right when another motorbike overtook two vehicles behind and then collided with him.

The man was left with fractures to his arm, which required surgery to insert metalwork. He also sustained injuries to his right hand, both legs and pelvis. An operation to remove the metalwork was delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, prolonging his recovery.

He was also diagnosed with PTSD as a result of the incident, and a secondary adjustment disorder with anxiety and depression.

He turned to nationally-renowned serious injury specialists at Sintons to support him in making a claim against the other motorcyclist, who was also injured in the collision in March 2019.

However, the defendant made a counter claim, alleging that the claimant was entirely at fault – but with the support of David Knipe, an associate at Sintons, the Claimant secured a liability split 85/15 per cent in his favour.

Sintons’ client secured a compensation package that supported him in the ongoing process of rebuilding his life.

“We received exemplary service from start to finish. There were some complications, as with most cases, but the input, advice and support received from David Knipe were second to none,” said the claimant.

“Any queries or concerns that we raised were met with kindness, patience and professionalism, all necessary arrangements were made with little to no fuss and our personal administration toll was kept to an absolute minimum.

“Overall, we were more than happy with the service received from Sintons, and 100 per cent would recommend them, and indeed we have.”

David Knipe, who has over 20 years of experience in personal injury work, added: “Our client was left with physical and psychological injuries as a result of this incident, which he continues to battle to overcome.

“While liability was denied by the other motorcyclist, with our support, we secured a favourable outcome for our client resulting in a settlement which we hope will assist in him in moving forward in his life.

“At Sintons, we have a deserved reputation for fighting hard on behalf of our clients, supporting them through the process and the many twists and turns that can often lie along the way.

“We pride ourselves on doing everything we can to secure the best possible bespoke outcome that meets their unique circumstances. We wish our client the very best for the future.”
