Our client was riding her bicycle in Worthing, West Sussex. Unfortunately, a careless driver parked by the side of the road opened the driver’s door into her path as she passed causing a collision and for her to fall from her bike. There was no dispute over blame as the driver was clearly negligent in failing to look before opening the door and his insurers accepted liability.
Our client sustained painful injuries to her right shoulder, left knee and leg, and aggravated a previous spinal injury. A negotiated settlement of £8000 was reached to compensate our client’s pain and suffering and financial losses. Unfortunately, this type of accident is one our experienced personal injury team has seen more of over the past year with more people taking to the roads on bicycles during the Covid-19 pandemic lockdowns.
