Motorcyclist Paralysed in Crash with Bus seeks £500k Compensation

• Wednesday, February 22nd, 2012

A motorcyclist has been left paralysed after he was involved in a crash with a bus in Plymouth.

Richard Mo was injured early on the morning of April 26th 2010. He was riding his Honda motorcycle along the road opposite the City College in Plymouth. The number 36 bus operated by the Plymouth Citybus company allegedly drove into his path causing a serious accident.

Mr Mo fractured both shoulder blades in the incident and suffered serious spinal injury. He still suffers from muscle spasms and pain from the injuries, and has been left reliant on a wheelchair for the rest of his life.

The Plymouth Herald is now reporting that Mr Mo is seeking compensation of £500,000 for his injuries from the insurers of the bus.

In papers just submitted to the High Court in London, his legal team are arguing that the driver of the bus – John Tait – failed to edge out slowly, instead crossing the road when it was unsafe to do so.

Any compensation awarded will cover the costs of Mr Mo’s new requirements. He currently is reportedly in need of suitable alternative accommodation.

A spokesperson for the bus company was unable to comment to the newspaper about the case because of the ongoing legal proceedings.
