Compensation settlement for injured cyclist
13 Oct 2015
- Personal Injury
Our client was cycling on a bike path when he rode into a hidden and unsafe culvert, suffering a severe spinal injury. We pursued a claim for him against the ACT government. The Government subsequently improved the dangerous site by including proper marking and railings.
Importantly for our client, the ACT government admitted liability and ultimately we were able to negotiate a lump sum settlement for him for his pain and suffering and other losses.
Our client recently contacted us stating: “I’m very grateful for your support and advice through the course of the matter. From our first meeting, I had full confidence in your professional approach and the subsequent smooth progress to a successful outcome, I was fully assured by your realistic and good humoured guidance. Many thanks for all your help”.
