Paralysed biker receives 4m payout
Taken from Motorcycle Trader
Biker Darren Russell has received more than £4m in compensation after being paralysed in a road accident in 2008. Russell, from Disley in Cheshire, was hit by a lorry turning from a side road near Stockport. The impact broke his neck and left him wheelchair-bound. The case went to a High Court trail in Liverpool to determine liability, and the judge found the driver of the lorry to be responsible for the incident.
Russell's team at MCE Insurance confirmed that a compensation package had been negotiated at an out of court settlement meeting. The package includes full compensation to cover his rehabilitation and care needs. He will receive a lump sum of £4.1m as well as £240,000 a year to cover care costs.
