In this case study, we are going to look at the personal injury accident claim made by Miss B, as we have named her for privacy reasons. Miss B is a member of British Cycling and as you can imagine, is a keen cyclist. In 2008, she was cycling down Queensbury High Street, in Bradford, when a driver who was travelling in the opposite direction, turned their car across her path. Miss B lost control of her bicycle and hit the pavement.
How Common are Cycling Accidents?
Cyclists are sadly relatively vulnerable road users. Unlike people on cars and buses, their vehicle doesn’t have an outer casing to protect them. According to RoSPA, in 2016 102 cyclists were killed on the road, and 3,397 cyclists were seriously injured. Car, van, lorry, and bus drivers are responsible for taking extra care to ensure they do not endanger drivers when cycling near them on the road.
What Injuries were Sustained in this Case?
After being taken to a hospital, Miss B was diagnosed with having suffered a broken collarbone and soft tissue injuries. The collarbone, also known as the clavicle is a long slender bone that runs across the top of your chest. A broken collarbone can cause severe pain and causes the shoulder to droop as it is no longer supported. Only severe broken clavicle injuries require surgery, most of them heal on their own but require a sling to be worn, to hold it in position whilst healing.
The Allegation and Establishing Liability
The driver’s insurers admitted liability. Miss B legal team were able to negotiate a broken clavicle settlement. The case was also further supported by British cycling.
Broken Collarbone Compensation Payout
In 2010 Miss B was awarded £6,1000 compensation in her broken clavicle settlement. The compensation was paid on account of her injuries.
No Win No Fee Solicitors Services
Many of the personal injury solicitors that we work with offer a Conditional Fee Arrangement (CFA). This is also known as a no win no fee service. This means that you only have to pay the solicitor’s fees if you win your case. For many people no win no fee solicitors services are a less stressful option as you don’t have to take the financial risk of paying an upfront fee. We also understand that if you are taking out a broken collarbone accident claim, you may have had to take time off work – which could have temporarily reduced your income, and may have incurred medical expenses. Therefore, you may be reluctant to put up more money, if you are not guaranteed to get a broken collarbone compensation payout. Choose a no win no fee solicitor, to reduce the financial risk.
