Lady cyclist awarded 5 figure sum in damages for injuries suffered in road traffic accident involving a bus

Our client was riding her bicycle along a busy road in London. The traffic lights controlling the junction were showing green in her favour. As she was crossing the junction, the defendant,  driving a bus  coming from the opposite direction turned across her path, causing her injury loss and damage.

Our Clients’ Injuries

Concussion, post concussion headaches, potential fracture at back of neck, stiff neck and shoulders, broken front tooth, cut upper lip, bruised and swollen chin and upper lip.

How Hayward Baker helped

Initially the defendant insurers denied  liability for the accident shortly after we submitted our client’s claim.

We then collated witness evidence to prove our client’s version of events and with skill and expertise in running such claims the defendant conceded liability due to the overwhelming evidence.

A medical examination with a medical expert was arranged who would examine our client and formulate a report upon her injuries. It would be this report we used to help  prove our client’s injuries were as a result of the accident and aid us in valuing her claim.

The report also supported the following claim for Special Damages:

  • Travel expenses to and from medical appointments
  • Damaged items of clothing and replacement bicycle
  • Dental treatment
  • Future dental treatment
  • Medical expenses to include instruction of plastic surgeon

Settlement

We negotiated  settlement for our client in the sum of just over £24,000.00
