Compensation for injured cameraman

Posted in: Foot Injuries Leg Injuries Medical Negligence Motorcycle Accidents Workplace Injuries 

An “inspirational” cameraman has been awarded a “substantial” compensation package after filming the moment that a motorbike crashed into him. 52-year-old Noel Greaves-Lord, from Worthing, had been filming from a pavement in Cannes, France, when a motorcyclist lost control and skidded into him while coming round a bend. He had to undergo several operations to fix his fractured ankle, but after contracting MRSA – an antibiotic resistant bacterial infection – doctors advised that amputation was the safest option.

During his extremely successful career, Mr Greaves-Lord covered extensive national and international sporting events for the BBC, ITV and other international broadcasters. The injuries he suffered as a result of the accident, which meant having to have his lower right leg amputated, forced him to give up work.

“I can now focus on rebuilding my life”

Mr Greaves-Lord now requires prosthetics, continual care and rehabilitation. An undisclosed settlement has been agreed to compensate him for the pain he suffered, the care that he will require, and any loss of earnings.

Mr Greaves-Lord, a father of three, said: “I am pleased and relieved that my legal battle has come to a conclusion and I can now focus completely on rebuilding my life and continue with my recovery and rehabilitation.
