Settlement of £30,000 for cycling accident on a roundabout

Nicola Hall, a specialist bicycle accident lawyer,

recently represented a cyclist who suffered a high grade right acromioclavicular injury (the AC joint is a joint in the shoulder where two bones meet) requiring acute surgical stabilisation and a moderate adjustment disorder for a period of 3 months.

The cyclist was proceeding across a roundabout with the intention of going straight on. Suddenly and without notice a driver entered the roundabout and collided with the cyclist.

Whilst the facts seemed clear cut the driver failed to admit liability for the accident. Nicola instructed a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon and Consultant Psychiatrist to comment on the cyclist’s injuries and obtained a witness statement from an independent party.

Following negotiations, Nicola was able to secure a settlement of £30,000 for our client.

The client comments

“I was very satisfied with the outcome of my recent claim as a result of injuries sustained from a car knocking me from my bike. Nicola Hall began with a very thorough examination of the circumstances and gave an accurate assessment of how the case would proceed. It involved an extensive gathering of information and evidence, and then persistent pursuit of the defendant’s insurance company.

During the process attention was paid to my own well being, and psychological support was provided.

I think it was down to the expertise, experience and knowledge of Ms Hall that lead to the case concluding this way”
