|INJURY SUMMARY||Our client suffered soft tissue injuries to the neck and shoulder.|
|CASE RESOLUTION||Case settled in 2015 and £2,750 awarded|
In September 2014, our client was injured while cycling to work. He commuted by bicycle every day, but at the time, a new tram line was being constructed and his route changed on a daily basis. On the day of the incident, the Claimant followed a diversion which directed him over a ramp. As he cycled over the ramp, the front wheel of his road bike became stuck in a gap in the ramp, causing him to be thrown over the handlebars.
As a result of the accident, the Claimant suffered a soft tissue injury to the neck which lasted for 6 weeks. He also had a soft tissue injury to his shoulder which lasted for 9 months.
After the client approached Jefferies with his cycling claim, solicitor Jenny Fenton took on the claim. She worked hard to ensure that the Claimant received the compensation he deserved. Eventually, the tram company responsible for the diverted cycle route and the ramp that caused our client’s injuries admitted full liability.
The case settled in 2015 and our client received £2,750 in compensation. The settlement amount reflected both the injuries and suffering our client experienced along with financial expenses he incurred following the incident. Because both his bicycle and helmet were damaged, the compensation covered the cost of replacing his cycle helmet and repairing his bike. He was also able to claim for prescriptions he had paid for to treat his injuries.
