Injured motorcyclist wins £10m compensation

Posted in: Head and Brain Injuries Motorcycle Accidents Road Traffic Accidents 

A man has been awarded £10m in compensation after suffering a severe brain injury in a motorbike crash. 31-year-old Marcel Beasley suffered life-changing injuries which have left him requiring around-the-clock care, the use of a wheelchair, and he also has severely impaired speech.

The compensation package arranged for Mr Beasley includes a £4.27million payout to help him purchase a specially adapted home, which will then be followed by tax free payments of £175,000 a year to help fund his specific care needs. In total, the package will be worth over £10million.

Overtaking slow-moving traffic

My Beasley, a father of two, was only 25 when he was involved in the motorbike accident. He had been riding his Yamaha R6 motorcycle when he decided to overtake a slow moving line of traffic. Suddenly, a VW Golf pulled out in front of him, causing a serious crash. The impact threw Mr Beasley off his motorbike into a ditch, and his helmet was also torn off before hitting the ground.

Mr Beasley was air lifted to hospital, during which his heart stopped eight times. He was in a coma for two weeks in an intensive care ward. 

The judge ruled at the Royal Courts of Justice that the 39-year-old motorist was 100% liable for the accident and Mr Beasley’s injuries. The judge said: “I’m wholly satisfied that this settlement is in the best interests of the claimant. I approve the settlement.
