Cyclist seriously injured in road traffic accident

Our client was cycling to work when a heavy goods vehicle pulled out of a minor road directly into his path. He was unable to take avoiding action and ran into the rear of the vehicle, suffering serious injuries.

Our specialist road accident lawyers were able to negotiate a settlement in excess of £350,000 in personal injury compensation for our client’s injuries. The defendant was subsequently found guilty of dangerous driving.

Road traffic accident injuries

At the time of this cycling accident, our client had been on his way to work and the road conditions were dry and good. The defendant was talking hands-free on his mobile phone and was distracted. As the defendant approached the junction with the main road, he did not stop at the white line and did not see our client, who was too close to the junction to avoid the collision.

Our client hit the rear of the vehicle at speed, hitting his head and suffering head injuries, several fractures, injuries to his arms and back, and serious internal injuries.

Recovering from a serious cycle accident

Recovery has taken a long time and despite many surgical and medical procedures, our client has been left with some permanent conditions as well as extensive scarring.

Despite these serious injuries, our client was eventually able to return to work. Initially it was thought that this would not be possible as his profession involved significant physical activity. However, it is likely that his ongoing condition will limit his progression in his chosen career.
