Cyclist receives £80,000 damages for head injuries

Closed head injury, cerebral damage, post-traumatic amnesia

A gentleman who was injured when he was struck by the wing mirror of a passing minibus as he cycled along the road, has received £80,000 in damages, plus payment for extensive private medical treatment. Mr T from Cwmbran suffered a closed head injury, cerebral damages, post-traumatic amnesia with cognitive impairments and complete loss of sense of taste and smell, after an accident which occurred as he was cycling along the road. Following the accident, Mr T was also advised that he had a 5% risk of developing epilepsy in the future, as a result of the injury.

The Defendant was driving a minibus and attempted to overtake Mr T. Unfortunately, in doing so, the wing mirror of the minibus struck the back of Mr T’s head, causing him to be thrown from his bicycle and sustain the injuries outlined above.

Mr T instructed Martyn Prowel Solicitors to act upon his behalf.

Janine Griffiths from Martyn Prowel stated: "This client instructed us to pursue damages for the personal injuries he had sustained. We were very concerned by the extent of the injuries sustained by Mr T and needed to ensure that he received all appropriate treatment in respect of the same. We arranged for Mr T to be examined by various Consultants, including a Clinical Neuropsychologist, Neurosurgeon, Neurophysiologist and Neuroradiologist. The biggest issue to Mr T and his wife was the change in personality, and we are delighted to note that the treatment recommended by the Consultants has set Mr T well on the road to recovery back to his pre-accident state.”

Mr T said, “I am delighted with everything that Martyn Prowel Solicitors have done for me. Janine Griffiths and the rest of the team have been sympathetic, fast and efficient throughout the matter, and were very knowledgeable in dealing with cases of this nature. When it came to settling the claim, Janine achieved a greater settlement than even our Barrister had said was likely! We are very grateful for the help and support received throughout”.
