Settlement: £8,000

What Happened: Our client was knocked from his bicycle by a driver who emerged from a side road.

Impact: He suffered a fractured arm, bruising and a soft tissue injury to his wrist, which required medical treatment. He had to take two months off work. He also could not ride his bike and therefore incurred travel expenses
