Disabled Motorcyclist Wins £10m in Compensation
After his motorcycle was struck by the door of a VW Golf, on the helicopter to the hospital, Marcel Beasley’s heart stopped 8 times. He spent two weeks in a coma, and now uses a wheelchair and needs constant care for “very traumatic brain injuries” and “impaired intellectual and cognitive functions”.
The driver of the Golf was found to be 100 % liable for the collision and for Mr Beasley’s injury.
London’s High Court awarded him over £10 million, made up of £4.27 million for a handicapped-enabled property, plus £175,000 annually to pay for his medical team.
Initially, Beasley was hospitalized for 15 months at the specialist brain injury unit of Richardson Mews in Northampton.
