Case study - John's multiple serious injuries after coming off his motorbike
As a result of an accident, John (names have been changed for privacy reasons) sustained multiple serious injuries, referred to as polytrauma. These injuries together, come within the definition of major trauma.
In particular, he sustained a closed head injury (from being knocked unconscious) defined as a mild traumatic brain injury. This resulted in post-traumatic amnesia for 2–3 weeks, post-concussion syndrome and neuropsychological difficulties including:
- reduced ability to reason and make decisions,
- rigidity of thinking,
- difficulty with numbers,
- reduced attention and concentration,
- frustration and anger.
In addition to the head injury, John also suffered a fractured eye socket resulting in associated vision difficulties, a fractured nose, a knee injury requiring three arthroscopies with a likelihood of developing post-traumatic arthritis and requiring a knee replacement in the future, a shoulder injury, rib fractures and a soft tissue back injury.
All of these injuries together had and will continue to have an impact on John’s life.
A compensation claim for the injuries helps support his future
Major Trauma Group member firm, Enable Law were asked to act for John to pursue a claim for damages. This action will compensate him for the injuries sustained as well as fund the support he needs now and going forward.
Due to the significance of John’s injuries, Enable Law sought to put in place provisions to assist with his rehabilitation. This involved utilising the support of a case manager to support him in the things he now found challenging. As he was unable to return to work in his pre-accident capacity, support included vocational rehabilitation as well as physical therapy which will provide him with physiotherapy and the cost for a gym membership with personal trainer.
