Cyclist hit by car at junction receives compensation

Our solicitors are specialists in cycle accident claims and we recently recovered compensation for a cyclist who suffered injuries when he was hit by a car.

Road accident

Our client was cycling home and he passed through a set of traffic lights at a junction. A vehicle drove through the junction from his left and collided with him. The vehicle hit his left side and he was thrown up onto the bonnet and windscreen, then landed in the road.

The emergency services came out to the scene of the accident and our client was taken to hospital by ambulance. He suffered injuries to both legs and one had a lot of internal bleeding, so he needed to use crutches during his recovery and had physiotherapy to help the healing process.

He had to take 2 months off work and couldn't exercise or play sports as he normally would. He was also unable to continue with his home renovations and he had difficulty sleeping due to the pain.

Personal injury compensation

The injured cyclist's clothes and bicycle were badly damaged, so in addition to his personal injury he also suffered financial losses. He approached us for help with a compensation claim.

We obtained the police report of the accident and began a claim against the driver's insurance company, detailing the injuries our client sustained. Although they did not accept liability for the accident, we were able to secure a settlement of £5,000 compensation for our client.
