Motorbike accident leads to £650,000 compensation award after horrific knee injury

An electrician and promising Thai Boxing athlete has received a massive injury compensation payment following a motorbike accident.  The accident resulted in his knee being dislocated and left him with serious ligament and nerve damage.

Despite a series of five corrective operations over a five year period, the man’s injured knee is still extremely weak.   His chances of returning to competitive sport have been rated as nil and medical opinion is that he is likely to require two complete knee replacements in the years ahead.  In addition to this, his career options will continue to be limited by his inability to carry out a range of manual labour tasks.
