Mr R approached Farleys’ personal injury team in order to help him pursue a claim following an accident that he had whilst riding his motorbike in Lancashire.


Mr R was struck by a car driver who was not paying attention to the road and failed to see Mr R when pulling out from a side road.

Mr R was taken to hospital by ambulance. He suffered extensive orthopaedic injuries including a fractured leg, back, pelvis, and arm. He had to have numerous operations and remained in hospital for over a week.

As a result of the accident, Mr R found that his life was dramatically changed by the actions of a negligent car driver. He was unable to pursue his chosen career.

How Farleys Were Able to Help

Mr R instructed Farleys Solicitors to help. Nick Molyneux acted on behalf of Mr R and arranged more than immediate needs assessment to be carried out in order to arrange early rehabilitation treatment to help Mr R on the path to recovery.

Nick appointed ten different medical experts to prepare reports in relation to Mr R’s injuries. An employment consultant was appointed to prepare a report in relation to the impact of this accident upon Mr R’s career and to give him an understanding of the opportunities that lay ahead of him.

It was necessary to issue court proceedings for Mr R and, following a round table meeting, a mutually agreed settlement was reached with Mr R recovering damages of over £200,000.

Nick Molyneux said,

It was a fantastic result to be able to obtain damages for Mr R but also to allow him access to early rehabilitation treatment that meant he was able to get back to his day to day activities quickly and to recover his quality of life.
