Road Traffic Accident in Germany

On 9th August 2005, Mr. Drummond was riding his motorcycle along a road outside the town of Katzenelabogen, Germany. He and his son had pulled over at the side of the road, when suddenly a minivan, driven by a German national, drove into the rear of Mr. Drummond’s motorcycle. As a result, Mr. Drummond was thrown to the ground and rendered unconscious.

As a result of the accident, Mr. Drummond sustained a minor head injury, a whiplash-type injury to his neck, a fractured rib, and a laceration to his shoulder. Mr. Drummond also sustained an injury to his right hip, which resulted in bursitis.

This claim was pursued in the English jurisdiction against the German driver’s insurers.

On 21st March 2006, the Defendant’s UK Claims Representatives admitted negligence on behalf of the Defendant. However, the Defendant did not put forward a suitable offer, nor did they accept any offers from the Claimant. Nevertheless, Irwin Mitchell LLP eventually managed to negotiate a suitable settlement figure of £11,145 in August 2009, shortly before trial was due to be scheduled.
