Injured biker to sue Bob Geldof for £300,000

Court writ issued after motorcyclist told his injuries will never heal properly

A MOTORCYCLIST is to sue former Boomtown Rat Sir Bob Geldof for £300,000 after being hit by the singer's car.

Biker Andrew Quinn, 42, suffered serious leg injuries when his motorcycle collided with the Geldof's silver Lexus after it U-turned in front of him in July 2007.

Since the accident Quinn has been told by medical experts to expect early arthritis in his leg. Doctors also told the father-of-one it will never heal properly.

Quinn has now issued the writ in the High Court and is demanding unlimited damages, reports today's Daily Mail.

Sir Bob, 58, said last night: "This is the first I've heard about it. I thought the matter had been resolved by the insurance firm but thank you for letting me know."
