Inspirational amputee client Philip Buchanan cycles 100m a day for MND charity

Our client Philip Buchanan recently completed the amazing achievement of cycling 1,000 miles around Ireland in support of the Motor Neurone Disease charity, MN5DF.

We continue to represent Phil in a road traffic accident claim in which he lost his right leg. In a collision between a car and a truck around London's Marble Arch, Phil was trapped under the wheels of the car when the driver mounted the pavement to avoid a collision. Doctors were unable to save Phil's leg and he underwent amputation surgery.

Watch a video about the race.

His settlement provided the funds for life-long care, including prosthetics, which enable Phil to get back on his bike and enjoy life.

With help and advice from the Global Cycling Network, Phil proudly completed the often gruelling 100m-a-day Great Rugby Cycle.

"It might sound silly, but I feel lucky. There have been tough moments but you know they're going to end. I did this challenge for people whose tough moments won't end," Phil said.

The My Name 5 Doddie Foundation (MN5DF) was set up by Scotland and Lions rugby legend Doddie Weir OBE who was diagnosed with MND in 2017. The Foundation supports research into the disease and offers help to people living with MND.
