The claimant was cycling along a busy main road, he was positioned in the bike lane and was moving forward at a steady speed. A car passed him and then suddenly without indication turned left across his path turning into a side road.
The cyclist had absolutely no time to stop and collided with the passenger side of the vehicle. He fell to the floor suffering personal injury.
The claimant was taken to hospital and discovered that he had broken his wrist – fracturing his scaphoid bone. He was detained in hospital for 4 hours and a plaster cast was applied to his lower arm. He was forced to take two weeks off work (as a factory operative) but made excellent progress and was virtually recovered within 3 months.
The claimant rang The Claims Connection for advice on making a cyclist claim for his personal injury. He had an excellent case because the car driver clearly did not see him. Witnesses also supported the claimants version.
Because of our no cost no win no fee scheme – he would not have to pay us a penny in fees. The responsible drivers insurers would pay all appropriate legal fees. Provided of course that we won his cyclist claim.
If we failed to win on liability then we would revert to our no win no fee agreement and the person making the cyclist claim would have no legal bill.
The claimant made a full recovery within 3 months. We settled the case for £3000 for pain and suffering and secured £500 in other expenses such as earnings / prescriptions, care and services etc
