Cyclist Receives £6,000 For Neck And Back Injuries

18 May 2021 | Nicola Hall

Our client hit his bicycle brakes as he approached queuing traffic. As he was doing this he was passing a side road to his left. A vehicle travelling in the opposite direction failed to see our client as he attempted to turn right into the same side road. He drove straight into our client, knocking him to the ground.

Find out how to make a claim

Our client suffered multiple injuries, the most serious being injuries to his neck. Medical reports were sought to corroborate this. Liability was admitted by the driver’s insurance company. A further medical report was commissioned by us to prove that the injury had not healed as quickly as was initially thought. The case settled for a lump sum of over £6000, which included compensation for the travel costs he incurred whilst recovering from his injuries.

There are no set amounts for compensation as a result of a cycling accident. The compensation the claimant receives is dependent upon how serious the injuries are and the resulting financial costs. These costs include medical care, lost income as a result of the accident, damage to the bike and any equipment including things like mobile phones and laptops that get damaged.

If you have suffered an injury due to a bike accident, you may be able to claim compensation. Call our specialist cycle accident solicitors for a free consultation on 020 7485 8811.
