6-figure settlement within a year for father injured on his bike

Eman Hassan secured a six-figure settlement in a cycling injury claim within just over 12 months from inception on behalf of a 40-year-old client badly injured in a road traffic collision after a car hit him on his bicycle.

Mr A was working in the City and living with his partner and newborn at the time of the collision.. He had always been extremely active. He was on his way to work when the car collided with him seriously fracturing his right tibia and fibula. He was taken to the Royal London Hospital for surgery and remained in hospital for more than a week.

Within two weeks of instruction, we obtained agreement for an Initial Needs Assessment under the Rehabilitation Code. Funding was agreed imminently and support for Mr A was received under the Code, including:

  • Physiotherapy
  • Childcare Support
  • Cleaners
  • Gym Membership
  • Private Orthopaedic Consultation
  • Exogen bone stimulator trial for a year to assist with the union of the fracture.

This allowed Mr A to fully focus on his recovery while receiving support for his partner with household tasks and childcare.

Mr A returned to work four-months after the accident and the funds supplied enabled him to travel to and from the City by taxi while he was still having difficulty with his mobility.

Eman worked collaboratively with the insurers and obtained medico-legal evidence to understand the future prognosis for Mr A. The insurers made an early offer and following conference with Mr A and Counsel, we settled Mr A's case. Settlement will help him to move forward with his life and obtain closure on what has been an extremely difficult time for him and his family. He will also be able to live independently again.

Following settlement, Mr A said:

'I could not possibly thank Eman enough for her professionalism and the knowledge, clarity and compassion she brought to my situation.

'With little effort from me, Eman and the team secured a valuable compensation claim. But it was the support Eman put in place for me and my family only weeks after the injury that saw us through a long and testing recovery that was beyond priceless and we will be forever grateful to Eman. I cannot imagine how different my situation would have been and still be had Eman not answered my call.'
