In October 2014, Billy was involved in a road traffic accident when another road user failed to give way when entering a roundabout, knocking Billy from his bike.
He suffered soft tissue injuries to his neck, shoulder, right elbow, right hip and chest as well as a variety of minor cuts to the right hand, right ankle, knee, back and abdomen. Billy also sustained a psychological injury which was later diagnosed as Adjustment Disorder with Anxiety.
Following the accident, he required an MRI scan and X-ray. He also needed immediate dental treatment to repair a fractured tooth, which will require future restoration or replacement.
Billy required a course of physiotherapy to help with his injuries. He also underwent a course of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) to assist with the psychological impact. It took a full 12 months from the date of the accident for Billy to fully recover.
How the Road Traffic Accident Solicitors at Jefferies helped
At Jefferies, we pushed for Billy to be awarded the maximum compensation. We worked hard to ensure that he was compensated for his pain, suffering and loss of amenity. However, we were also able to recover the associated financial losses he had experienced. The compensation Billy received enabled him to replace his bicycle and cycle clothing and recover various expenses he had incurred as a result of the accident. His cycling accident claim settled for £13,646.50 out of court in December 2015.
