Cyclist hit by car in Sussex receives a four figure personal injury payout

A cyclist in West Sussex who was injured when struck by a car in West Wittering is awarded a four figure sum for his injuries.

Accident Circumstances: Our client was riding his bicycle along the B2179 in West Wittering when the defendant driving in the opposite direction turned across his path to go into a public house car park and in doing so collided with our client. As a result of the collision our client suffered a personal injury.

Our Client’s Injuries: Neck and back pain. Broken thumb along with cuts and bruises.

What did Hayward Baker Solicitors do to help: One of our personal injury specialists Alison Spriggs who is a Fellow of the Institute of Legal Executives took on the case on a no-win-no-fee basis and sent a letter of claim to the defendant blaming them for the accident because they turned right across the path of our correctly proceeding client on his bicycle, failed to observe or heed the presence of or the approach of our client’s vehicle and failed to give passage to our client’s correctly proceeding vehicle.

All road users have a duty of care to ensure that they do not ise the road in a manner that presents a reasonably foreseeable risk of causing danger and/or injury to other road users. The defendant failed to do this and their driving was therefore negligent.

Liability was admitted by the defendant.

A medical appointment was  arranged for our client so he could be examined by a medical expert who would formulate a report upon our client’s injuries. It was this report that would help prove our client’s injuries and aid Alison in valuing the compensation claim.

Surgery was arranged after the medical expert who formulated our client’s medical report recommended that our client’s  thumb required corrective surgery.

We formulated a schedule of our client’s out of pocket expenses to include care and assistance around the home, travelling and medical expenses.

Resolution: Our client was awarded £3,626.00 in damages.
