hi guys, i posted this in the insurance section but got advised to move i got knocked off my bike about 2 months months ago, a "lady driver" flew out of a side street straight into my left hand side, bending my bike, snapping my leg and shooting me about 20 foot across the road....
compound fracture of tibia and fibula with 2inches of tibia bone lost
had 3 lots of surgery so far including;
external fxator to hold the bones where they should go while they sort the flesh out.
had 2 lots of skin and muscle grafts including 30 staples and 40 stitches.
3 more lots of surgery to go;
adjustable fixator (will break my leg higher up and try move the bone down internally 2 inches).
when the bone is the right length i'll be having a bone graft - taking shavings form my pelvis and grafting to the original break to add strength.
then final surgery will be removal on all 30 pins off the fixator (after its been on for 6 months).
its a straight cut case pretty much as the woman has addmitted full liabilty.
got a cheaque coming for my bike next week hopefully.
just wanna know how much i'm likely to get for all my injuries, gonna be next may/june before i'm back up on my feet.
ANYONE GOT ANY IDEAS OF HOW THEY PRICE UP CLAIMS??
the attached pic is how my leg is at the moment.
