Ed Buckley was training to become a pilot at Leeds University when he was hit by a speeding taxi while crossing the road. He suffered a traumatic brain injury and doctors did not expect him to survive.
He was in coma for six months after the accident and spent almost two years in hospital recovering from his injuries.
Our personal injury solicitors secured compensation to help his rehabilitation and – with the support of his friends and family – Ed can now walk and talk again. He has since returned to full-time education and graduated with a degree in Aerospace Technology.
Ed took part in all three stages of the 2017 Superhero Series Triathlon as part of our Don’t Quit Do It campaign. Watch his story below.
Ed enjoyed the challenge so much that he is now hoping to compete at the Tokyo 2020 Paralympics.
