Cyclist hit by car on busy roundabout awarded damages and physiotherapy support for injury
Cyclist Michael Gill suffered a fracture to his wrist and soft tissue damage after being knocked from his bike by a driver on a busy roundabout. The painful injury caused Mr Gill to need more than two months off work.
Insurers representing the driver who hit Mr Gill admitted full liability for the accident. Through a personal injury compensation claim, led by Hudgell Solicitors, Mr Gill underwent a course of physiotherapy care which helped him regain strength in his wrist and make a return to work as quickly as possible. A damages settlement was also reached without the need for a court hearing.
Mr Gill was awarded £14,545 damages.
Mr Gill said: “I am really glad I decided to call Hudgells and take some advice. Once my claim started the driver’s insurers were quick to admit fault and then it was all straight forward, from the arrangement of my physiotherapy to the compensation amount being set.”
Hudgell Solicitors comment
Personal injury claims specialist Lauren Cartwright said: “This case was a good example of how people who suffer what are considered to be the more minor injuries from a road accident can benefit from making a compensation claim, both physically and financially.”
