The motor accident litigation team here at Taylor & Scott concluded a claim for a cyclist, injured, whilst riding home from work.
Our client was hit from behind by a bus as he slowed down at an intersection.
Initially, the cyclist thought he would recover from his injuries; in fact he had been able to phone a friend to come and collect him and his bike from the scene of the accident.
“My neck and back felt extremely sore, I was very shaken but thought how lucky was I not to have been crushed by the wheels of the bus” he stated.
Unfortunately for the cyclist, over the next few days saw an ever increasing degree of pain in his back and legs, ultimately leading to operations and long periods away from his job.
The motor accident legal team here at Taylor & Scott, who are experts in cyclist claims, provided a Free Case Assessment and then acted for our client on a no-win/no-pay basis.
Due to the nature of the cyclist’s injuries, he was unable to return to his old job and has been forced to work ‘odd jobs’ due to a lack of transferable skills.
Eventually our motor accident legal team was able to settle a compensation claim for a sum in excess of one million dollars.
