A motorcyclist is seeking compensation of £2.5million after a crash with a car left him with a brain injury.
Darren Braund was injured in the collision during July 2009. He was on his motorbike as he rode along on ‘A’ road near the town of Barry in South Wales. He was involved in a collision with a Vauxhall Corsa vehicle and suffered serious injuries.
His helmet was reportedly ripped off by the car’s windscreen wiper, causing his head to take a huge impact in the crash.
He was rushed to hospital, where he spent more than the next two weeks in a coma. He suffered a brain injury, and has been left without the use of his left arm. He also now suffers from epilepsy and other conditions.
The driver of the Corsa was convicted of driving without due care and attention in regards to the accident, and now Mr Braund is reported by Wales Online to be seeking motorbike accident compensation from her insurers.
In legal papers submitted to the High Court in London, his legal team argue that the driver turned right when it was not safe to do so, moving into the path of Mr Braund’s motorbike.
