The coccyx is the last bone at the bottom of your spine, also known as the tailbone. A broken tailbone can be very debilitating. Injuring the tail bone can cause coccydynia, which means constant pain in the area around your coccyx. In this case study we are going to look at the case of Mr P – as we have called him here to protect his privacy, a self-employed man in his 40s who suffered a serious coccyx injury in a road traffic accident. Mr P was cycling to work when a car collided with him, as he tried to exit a mini roundabout. Mr P was thrown from his bike and landed on his left shoulder and arm. He also hit his head on the tarmac but was, fortunately, wearing a helmet, preventing him from getting a serious head injury.
How Common are Cycling Accidents In The UK?
Sadly, cycling accidents are relatively common as cyclists are a vulnerable group of road users. Cyclist’s vehicles do not have an outer casing to protect them, unlike cars, or buses. According to RoSPA, in 2016 102 cyclists were killed on the road, and 3,397 cyclists were seriously injured. Other road users such as people driving cars, vans, buses or lorries are responsible for not endangering cyclists when driving near them on the road.
More Details On The Broken Coccyx Injuries Suffered By The Claimant
What injuries did Mr P suffer? Mr P was taken to hospital by ambulance, where he was diagnosed with a hairline fracture to his ankle, and extensive bruising to his coccyx, left shoulder, and arm. After being discharged his wife has cared for him at home. As an immediate result of his injuries Mr P had to miss several days off work and use crutches, due to the physical pain he suffered. Although after several months Mr P’s fractured ankle healed and he was able to resume daily activities, including working and cycling, he was also diagnosed with a condition called coccydynia, which was caused as a result of his injuries. This condition left him with severe pain around his lower back, especially if he sat down for too long, or stood up after standing. Although Mr P has undergone several tailbone pain treatments under anaesthetic and physiotherapy, the results of the treatment were only temporary. At the time of the compensation claim, Mr P was awaiting surgery to have part of his coccyx removed, which is an invasive form of tailbone pain treatment, which he would understandably rather avoid.
The Allegation, Establishing Liability And Compensation Award
The driver that hit Mr P did not contest the accident claims and admitted liability through their solicitors. Mr P’s legal team negotiated a broken coccyx compensation settlement of £27,000.
