Cheshire motorcyclist receives £40K after breaking leg in RTA

Supported by the solicitors at Biker SOS, part of Fletchers Group

Lawyer: Gavin Marsh 
Settlement Figure: £40,000 

Josh Cheetham was thrown from his motorcycle after another vehicle pulled out to perform a U-turn while Josh was filtering past traffic. Despite slamming his horn on, Josh along with his motorcycle, were thrown over the bonnet of a Dacia Sandero. 

Josh was taken to Leighton hospital, where it was confirmed he had suffered a badly broken left leg, a Transverse Mid-Shaft Femur Fracture. He was given a nerve block, and his left leg was manipulated to fit the metal frame cast. 

On day two, Josh underwent a Left Antegrade Femoral Nail procedure under general anaesthetic. This was to straighten the leg and make sure there was no lasting discomfort. 

Shortly after leaving hospital, Josh contacted us for legal support. Serious Injury Solicitor, Gavin Marsh took on Josh’s case. 

There were many uncertain months following the road traffic accident. Josh not only experienced an awful lot of physical pain, the mental trauma weighed him down, also. There were times he feared ever travelling again and sought help from his local GP for anxiety and depression. 

However, Josh wasn’t deterred for long and he is not only back on the road and riding a new motorcycle, he intends to use the accident as a reason for positive change in his life.  

Josh explains: 

“Most of all, I want to study to become a paramedic in the future. I am going to study and retrain to become a paramedic, all as a result of my accident. I have been inspired and the amazing paramedics who helped me, and I now want to be able to help others.” 

In conclusion to Josh’s serious injury case, liability was settled at 50/50 and he received £40,000.
