search Case Study: Chronic pain from a cycling accident

A 37-year-old male client living in South East England sustained soft tissue injuries to his right hand, arm and neck following an accident with a vehicle, causing him to come off his pedal bike. He also sustained psychological trauma, could not come to terms with riding his bike again, had a 10-year history of depression and the combination of physical and psychological injury caused him to be off work (in his self-employed painter and decorator job) for 6 months.

Treatment was arranged, including steroid injections at no cost to the client, which slightly ameliorated his symptoms. We instructed a top pain consultant and psychologist, obtaining strong evidence to show the injuries were all accident related. The injuries went into manifest in complex regional pain syndrome.

The Defendant’s insurers admitted liability but attacked the claim, pointing to a pre-history of psychological symptoms and some previous back and neck complaints. However, thanks largely to the impressive nature of the medical evidence, we obtained a successful outcome and the client recovered in the region of £125 000.

Questions & answers

Will I have to go to Court?

Only a very small percentage of cases ever go to trial. The vast majority of cases settle out of court through negotiation and mediation.

How much time will my claim take?

Personal injury cases can range from very straightforward to extremely complex. If your claim is simple, then it may be resolved in 6 months to a year.

More complicated claims with more serious injuries may take longer, usually because you will have to wait for your injuries to either fully recover or stabilise before you know what damages you are entitled to.

If the accident has caused you financial difficulties, the Defendant may agree to make a part payment of your damages, or provide care and treatment, while the claim is ongoing.
