Bicycle Accident Claim Against Uber Driver

18 May 2021 | Andrew Middlehurst

A cyclist has been awarded £7,000 following a road accident in which she was knocked off her bike by an Uber driver whose insurers admitted liability and made a very early settlement offer of just over £1,300. They put pressure on the cyclist by sending the offer directly to their home address. Andrew Middlehurst, a specialist cycling solicitor, advised the cyclist that it was likely that they could beat this offer if they obtained medical evidence. Medical reports were obtained following ultrasound investigations and physiotherapy treatment. The medical reports were then disclosed and the claim settled for over £7000.
