Motorcyclist awarded £6 million in compensation following a motorbike crash in Germany

James Booth, a 39 year old Sales Director with IBM, suffered brain damage, multiple fractures and serious internal injuries when a tractor pulled into the path of his motorcycle near Baden Baden in 2009.

Mr Booth was in a coma for several weeks and 4 years on has been awarded compensation of £6.1 million to continue his rehabilitation including learning to walk again.

Prior to the accident, Mr Booth had a successful career at IBM and was a keen sportsman who undertook most activities including running the London marathon.

That has all changed and it is likely that he will never be able to return to work again.

Since the accident, Mr Booth has had intensive rehabilitation which has helped him to improve his speech and re-learn how to walk.

Kim Smerdon, Specialist Motorcyclist Solicitor says:

“Securing these funds to ensure that Mr Booth continues to get the support and rehabilitation that he needs to make further improvements and enhance the quality of his life”.

The service was personal, professional and considered. I was treated so kindly and in the end I knew that not only had I found the right organisation but also the right person.
