Seven-Figure Award For Spinal Cord Injury18 May 2021 | Andrew Middlehurst
Our client was thrown off his bicycle after being hit by a lorry. He suffered a severe spinal cord injury. Despite footage from a camera mounted at the front of the lorry which shows the collision in full, liability is denied. Collision reconstruction experts have been instructed.
Our client is now wheelchair reliant and has required adapted accommodation as well as nursing care. This case is ongoing, however, we are pursuing a seven-figure cycle accident compensation settlement for our client.
Back and spinal injuries are common in cycling accidents and can have catastrophic consequences. Typical spinal injuries from a bike accident include fractures, spinal cord damage, slipped discs, coccydynia (injury to the coccyx) and spondylolisthesis (where vertebra slip out of position).
In cases such as this, collision investigators analyse all of the information available including damage to vehicles involved in the accident, injury patterns and other evidence at the scene to determine the likely speed and direction of travel of the parties involved prior to the accident in order to establish liability. Investigators also review Police reports and other expert reports as the basis for preparing evidence. Detailed information about the scene of the accident can be crucial in serious injury claims as it provides impartial evidence as to the cause of the incident.
If you have suffered an injury due to a bike accident, you may be able to claim compensation. Call our specialist bicycle accident lawyers for a free consultation on 020 7485 8811.
