Over four times the initial offered received for cyclist after being knocked down
Mr E.'s case was handled by another firm of solicitors for 2 years before he came to Digby Brown. Mr E. had been cycling his bike when he was hit by a car and trailer, near Port Glasgow. He suffered from a broken shoulder and the accident aggravated pre-existing knee problems. When Digby Brown took over Mr E's case an offer of £6,000 had been made. Within a year of having the case, Digby Brown had obtained an in depth medical report for Mr E. and his case was subsequently litigated in the Court of Session in Edinburgh. The Defenders increased their offer to £10,000 which was rejected. After further negotiation with the Defenders, Mr E.'s case settled for £25,000.
