Road traffic accident may lead to damages claim

A road traffic accident which left a teenager with several broken bones could result in him filing for a personal injury compensation settlement.

According to online news resource Get Reading, the young man, who is 16 years old, is currently in intensive care following an incident in which he sustained a fractured leg and skull as well as chest problems.

He is now under observation at Oxford's John Radcliffe Hospital - which is managed by the Oxford Radcliffe Hospitals NHS Trust, an organisation that also runs five other institutions in the area - after undergoing surgery on his leg.

The report noted he was riding a motorbike and was involved in a collision with a car in Reading last week, which has left him in a "critical but stable condition".

Therefore, the teenager could decide to pursue a claim for personal injury damages after the cause of the accident is determined.
