Mr White had been cycling to work and entered a roundabout with the intention of turning right. As he entered the roundabout, a bus, which was approaching the roundabout from his left hand side, failed to note Mr White's presence and collided with him.
Mr White was thrown from his bicycle and suffered a major injury to his right, dominant wrist, whereby his radius was completely shattered and his scaphoid and ulna styloid bones fractured. He required surgery to his wrist following the accident together with an extensive course of physiotherapy.
The defendants admitted liability for the collision but questioned the nature and impact of the injuries sustained by Mr White.
The injuries were, in fact, significant to Mr White due to the fact that he worked as an actor/musician and therefore required full use of his right wrist to play the various instruments that he specialised in.
Following extensive negotiations with the Defendants, Mr White accepted the sum of £56,250 in settlement of his claim for compensation. Mark Bowman acted under the terms of a No Win, No Fee agreement and Mr White recovered his damages in full.
