Damages of £8,500 for cyclist who fractured ankle

Case study published on: 3rd August 2020

Our client was cycling at night with lights and a hi-vis jacket. He was using a mini-roundabout when a car drove into his rear as it entered the roundabout behind him. The impact fractured the Claimant’s ankle requiring fixation surgery, effectively leaving our client housebound and having to wear an ankle boot for seven weeks before a course of physiotherapy. The Defendant attempted to argue contributory negligence to reduce the Claimant’s claim but the arguments were successfully defeated by us and our client was awarded £8,500 in damages which included roughly £1000 for his care, travel and bicycle damage claim.
