Biker awarded injury damages as legal case saw driver who hit him found 100% at fault for crash

A motorcyclist with almost three decades of riding experience suffered a serious injury to his shoulder when hit by a car which swung out into his path without warning when he was overtaking standing traffic. The full scale of the biker’s injuries were not discovered until sometime after his accident, as although no bones were broken in the accident, he did suffer a tear in his shoulder which required surgery.

The full scale of the biker’s injuries were not discovered until sometime after his accident, as although no bones were broken in the accident, he did suffer a tear in his shoulder which required surgery.

The legal process


Hudgell Solicitors secured full admissions in this case and insurers on behalf of the driver admitted 100% liability, despite it being a ‘filtering’ accident where the biker had been passing queuing traffic.
Such cases can often be disputed by defendants in terms of liability.
The support of Hudgell Solicitors included a number of sessions of physiotherapy.

Settlement


As well as covering the cost of physiotherapy sessions, the claim also resulted in a £15,851 damages settlement for our client.

Hudgell Solicitors comment


Personal injury claims specialist Helen Creaser said: “This was a significant injury which causing some considerable pain for some time. We were delighted to provide a package of support which included physiotherapy, and damages which not only covered pain and suffering, but also loss of earnings for the occasions where work was missed for medical care and treatment”.

Client comment


“Helen kept me updated and arranged the physiotherapy. She made it clear that the priority was to ensure the damages settlement reflected how the injury had impacted on me, both in terms of pain and disruption to my life. I was very happy with the outcome.”
