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.
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 and also a further medical report commissioned by us to prove that the injury had not healed as quickly as was initially thought. The case settled for over £6000, which included compensation towards the travel costs he incurred whilst recovering from his injuries.
