Andrew Middlehurst, a specialist cycling accident solicitor at Osbornes Law, recently settled a claim for a cyclist in the region of £70,000 and a £7,000 claim. In the first claim the cyclist had been navigating a crossroads junction when an unfortunate collision occurred.

While waiting for traffic to clear at the junction, the cyclist was knocked off their bike by a car, leading to a fractured hip, a hip replacement, and a permanent leg length discrepancy.

Liability was accepted by the driver’s insurers. To assess the full impact of the injuries, Andrew arranged consultations with a lower limb orthopaedic surgeon and a podiatrist for comprehensive care and financial impact analysis.

The case was effectively negotiated with the insurers, resulting in a satisfactory settlement for the cyclist without the need for court proceedings.

Accident Near Regents Park

In the second claim, Andrew secured a £7,000 payout for a cyclist who was hit by a car near Regents Park, Camden, resulting in a fractured toe and subsequent medical procedures. Thanks to evidence from the cyclist’s handlebar-mounted camera, liability was swiftly admitted by the insurance company. A lower limb orthopaedic surgeon was consulted to evaluate the short to long-term impacts of the cyclist’s injuries.
