Cycling Accident Resulting In An Amputation - £390,000
Mr S made a compensation claim through FBC Manby Bowdler having suffered a road accident while cycling home from his place of work.
He was struck by a lorry suffering a very serious and life changing injury – a below knee amputation of his left leg. His previous solicitors declined to represent him in court proceedings, which were necessary following the Defendant insurer denying the claim.
Our serious injury team agreed to represent him on a no win, no fee basis and we issued proceedings in the High Court. The Defendant after serving a defence to the claim, entered into negotiations and at a Joint Settlement Meeting we negotiated payment of compensation to Mr S of £390,000.
This enabled him to purchase top quality prosthetic limbs and to set up a diving school in Thailand.
