Award winning accident injury lawyers Thompsons have secured £3,500 for a cyclists hit by a van at a junction in Girvan.
The van driver pulled out of the junction without noticing the 57 year old cyclist causing him to fall from his bike sustaining injuries to his back and neck. The cyclist received treatment from his GP and attended hospital for treatment for a sprain to his neck which had subsequently exacerbated a pre-existing condition. Thompsons argued that the driver had failed to drive with due care and attention when he hit our client. Liability was accepted by the insurers and they offered a settlement figure which, following negotiations was increased to £3,500.
The client, who was a member of the Fire Brigades Union, was entitled to Thompsons expert legal services at no cost due to his union membership.
