Sam's Story

Motorcycle Accidents Serious Injury

Sam lost his leg in a motorcycle accident. But, with Fletchers support, he set a goal to pass his helicopter pilot licence

“Fletchers got me an interim payment so that I could face rehabilitation while my claim was ongoing. That really helped. They also put me through a bit of physio. The legs were so much more comfortable, so much more I could do and that was when I really started to feel better. I was actually walking and I wasn’t in agony.”
