Cyclist receives substantial road accident compensation

The defendant in this claim for cycle accident compensation had pulled out of a junction onto the A road on which our client was travelling, immediately in front of our client. He then carried out a dangerous manoeuvre in front of our client, driving his vehicle into our client's path, leaving him no chance to avoid a collision.

As a result of the defendant’s actions, our client was unable to avoid colliding with the vehicle. He suffered concussion, injuries to his face and a broken collarbone. He also suffered strain to ligaments, and various soft tissue injuries. However, the worst injury was to his head, which resulted in a worsening of memory and balance, and brain injury affecting his cognitive functions.

Substantial road accident compensation for spinal injury

As with many such serious accident compensation claims, especially when the victim is a minor at the time of the accident, reaching a final conclusion and a fair settlement to finance the care required for many years to come, can be lengthy, frequently taking many years. Our specialist serious injury solicitors, fought to obtain £750,000 in interim payments within five months of the day of the accident. This enabled our client and her family to purchase suitable accommodation in order to begin to rebuild her life, without waiting for the final outcome and final award of road accident compensation.

Fitness to work – new system for returning to work after sickness or personal injury

Many of the compensation claims that specialist personal injury lawyers like ourselves deal with every year, involve client’s who are seeking a phased return to work. Everyone will have their own individual reasons for wanting to get back to work, be it financial, therapeutic, or just the need to get their life back to some sort of normality.

Although they may not be able to carry out the duties they performed before their accident or injury, they may still feel that they can contribute and that working would aid their recovery, if not to full fitness, then to achieve the best level of fitness they can.
