Our road traffic accident experts helped a cyclist receive a six figure sum in compensation after he was hit by a car in 2008.
Our client was 16 years of age and cycling home from school at the time when a driver emerged from a side road and collided with him.
As a result, he sustained both moderate head injuries and significant burn injuries to his shoulders and buttocks.
Although there were some initial issues over liability, these issues were resolved quite quickly with the help of Laura Middleton – a personal injury specialist in our London office.
An interim payment was then secured to enable our client to have access to cognitive behavioural therapy to address the ongoing difficulties resultant from his head injury and the necessary expert evidence was obtained to assist the claim.
A six figure sum was ultimately secured for our client for the pain and suffering caused, which will ensure that his future needs are fully taken care of.
If you or a loved one has been injured in a cycling accident, our personal injury lawyers could help you claim compensation. See our Cycling Accident Compensation page for more information.
