28 June 2017
A cyclist injured in a road traffic collision was awarded a four-figure settlement for damages that meant they were unable to work.
Slater and Gordon Solicitor: Fern Joyce is a litigation executive specialising in personal injury claims at Slater and Gordon in Sheffield.
Settlement: Four-figure settlement.
What Happened: Our client was on his bicycle when the defendant’s vehicle collided with them while turning left into a side road.
Impact: Our client injured his shoulder, resulting in a permanent lump. He had to take three weeks off work, meaning he suffered a loss of earnings.
How Slater and Gordon Helped: We obtained evidence and brought a claim against the defendant’s insurers for the loss of earnings and finances to repair his broken bicycle. The defendant admitted liability in the first instance and made a reasonable first offer which the client accepted. The claim was settled in four months.
Decision: Our client was awarded more than £7,000 in settlement of his claim.
