Why your loss my not always be measurable after a personal injury

A recent settled road traffic accident case showed that it is important to remember that it is not always obvious what your loss is. The claim involved a motorcycle rider who suffered injuries lasting over a year.

Matthew Bell, Partner within the litigation team says 'motorcycle riders wait a long time for the warmer months to arrive so they can get out on their bikes and enjoy the summer air on the open road. Many firms often do not consider the fact that this in itself represents a loss to the client, namely the loss of use of the motorbike. Indeed I consider this in every instruction I receive, whether involving a biker or the driver of a car. In this case I successfully argued that the client should be awarded more than simply for his injuries and other items of loss such as the damage to his bike and his safety equipment, in light of his time off the road'.
