Cycling Accident Compensation Sussex – £65000 Settlement
Mr Downton of Burgess Hill West Sussex came to Mulderrigs with his cycling accident compensation claim.
He was riding his bike along a residential road that was very narrow because there were cars parked on the pavement.
A car then came along in the opposite direction at high speed and our client had to swerve off the road to get out of the way.
Mr Downton was thrown of his bike and badly injured.
He suffered a very serious fracture of his shoulder and eventually had to undergo a replacement operation.
He also suffered some facial and nasal injuries.
Car drivers have a duty to take care for the safety of all other road users – including cyclists!
Joanne Smith was satisfied that the car driver was at fault.
So she was happy to take on the case and she acted on “no win no fee” terms.
The insurers for the driver denied any responsibility for the accident.
So we gathered detailed evidence from our client and other witnesses and then got on with court proceedings.
The insurers agreed to negotiate with us as the case was approaching trial.
Mr Downton accepted an offer of £65,000 in compensation for his injuries.
