Our client

Ian was a keen cyclist who was training for a 120 mile ride with his son. He was out cycling down a country lane when someone unexpectedly pulled out of their driveway and Ian went straight into the side of him.

Ian woke up on his back to find he had an open fracture to his leg. He was lucky to be alive and was rushed to hospital in an air ambulance to receive treatment.

He had to undergo an operation to have plates in his leg. However, after two months the plates failed so he had to undergo further operations and has been in and out of hospital for over a year.

Initially Ian couldn't walk and was off work for about a year. He wondered whether he'd ever be able to get back to where he was.

The case so far

Ian went online to find a law firm that could help him and he contacted Slater and Gordon's cycling accident experts. They were able to seek interim payments for Ian to alleviate any financial worries, given that he'd been unable to work for so long.

Ian says: "The experience I've had with Slater and Gordon - it just made the whole situation a lot easier and that does help when you're down on your luck."
