Headcam evidence might help with liability but not always the value of the claim.

Andrew contacted Cycle Law Scotland regarding a road traffic incident he had been involved in during March 2015.

Andrew had been cycling with his wife in Dundee when a taxi exited from a side road and collided with him.

Andrew was knocked off his bicycle and sustained injury. He was treated at the scene by paramedics and thereafter attended his GP. He sustained injuries to his legs, lower back and arm. His bicycle and kit were also badly damaged.

A claim was intimated to the third party insurers within days of the incident occurring. The third party insurers subsequently admitted liability for the incident and proceeded to release an interim payment so that Andrew could replace his damaged bicycle.

Settlement negotiations regarding the value of Andrew’s claim were entered into but a settlement between both parties could not be reached. As a result, in February 2016 the case was raised in Court.

The third party insurers quickly made an offer to settle but this was rejected. In December 2016, the third party insurers proposed an increased offer which was almost double their original offer put forward prior to the matter being raised in Court.

Andrew accepted this offer so there was no longer a requirement to go to a Court hearing.

Andrew was delighted with the outcome and thanked us very much for all of our help.
