Leading personal injury and medical negligence solicitors
£30,000 compensation secured for cyclist hit by moped
Boyes Turner personal injury department were instructed by the Mr G following a cycling accident in which he was knocked from his bicycle by a speeding moped driver, sustaining significant injuries.
Liability was admitted in pre-action correspondence; however the admission was withdrawn by the defendant’s insurers as they alleged to have witness evidence to support a different version of accident circumstances from that provided by Mr G. Boyes Turner through in-depth investigations to obtain police evidence as the police had not produced an accident report. A copy of the attending policeman's notebook on the scene confirmed Mr G's version of events. The alleged witness evidence supporting the defendant was never disclosed.
Due to Boyes Turner's efforts in investigating liability further, the defence served admitted liability subject to causation. Mr G underwent orthopaedic, pain management and neurological treatment reports in relation to his claim and his injuries. Medical evidence was very complex as Mr G was suffering from an unknown issue which experts could not diagnose until the client was seen by a Neuro-psychologist who provided a report and diagnosis, together with a comprehensive treatment plan.
Upon disclosure of all medical evidence in support of Mr G's injuries and recommended treatment, the defendant made a Part 36 offer of £20,000. This enabled negotiations to commence resulting in agreement for the defendant to pay £30,000 plus costs.
I really appreciated the friendly, efficient and supportive nature of the solicitor.
I would also like to express my thanks to you for your dedication in chasing the defendant's insurance company especially where COVID-19 made an impact.
