“I’m grateful to the air ambulance crew for what they’ve done, for getting me through and getting me out so fast, and for being there.” Jack had suffered significant orthopaedic and head injuries in a head-on collision. Regrettably, Jack’s uncle did not make it, but Jack pulled through against the odds and is well on his way to making a recovery. In a BBC interview, Jack recalled that every bone in his body seemed to have been broken, “apart from my nose” and that he even had to learn to walk again.
Jack suffered a brain injury, a fractured femur, fractured tibia and fibula in both legs and also fractures to the orbit bone, upper and lower jaw, vertebrae, right shoulder, right elbow, pelvis and both knees. His spleen and liver were ruptured along with a long list of soft tissues injuries. It wasn’t until he had begun his recovery in hospital that Jack learned about Prince William attending the scene as the air ambulance pilot carrying a dedicated team of doctors. The whole Air Ambulance crew is delighted and profoundly moved to see the progress that Jack has made in the past year.
Lawyer Daryl Robinson: “Words cannot express just how satisfying and rewarding it is to work with such a brave, young man.” Daryl sees a major part of his role being to ensure that Jack has access to the best on-going rehabilitation package to ensure that he lives as full a life as possible.
Jack has put a small tattoo on his arm of the date and time of the accident and ‘Philip’, his uncle’s name, as recognition of “the time and date my life changed”. Our best wishes are extended to Jack.
