Cyclist receives over £6,000 in compensation after being hit by a car on a roundabout

Settlement figure: £6,144
Lawyer assigned to the case: Diane Holderness

Our client approached a mini roundabout, with nothing coming from the right they entered on to the roundabout.  As our client was exiting the roundabout, a vehicle approached from their left, failing to give way, impacting the clients left hand side, causing the client to be thrown off, sustaining injuries and damaged items. 

Our client’s carbon-framed bicycle was written off in the collision. He also sustained the following injuries:

  • Grazing to the left knee  
  • Pain and discomfort in the left shoulder, hips, left knee and lower back  
  • Severe cuts and grazing to the left hand and left thumb  

The case was handled by Personal Injury Litigation Executive, Diane Holderness. Reflecting on the claim she said: 

“It is imperative that vehicle drivers take care to look out for vulnerable road users at junctions. The speed in which both parties are able to travel is at odds with one another, which makes the limited viewpoint of junctions a particular hazard. I was pleased to be able to secure compensation for my client, whose expensive bicycle was completely destroyed in the incident.”
