Successfully concluded a substantial case last week for a cyclist badly injured at a roundabout in Southampton by a DVD van driver who failed to give way . Client in his 40’s was transferred from Portsmouth to Southampton because of the complexity of his fracture. Liabilty fully admitted although the insurers needed considerable pressure before they buckled.
Orthopaedic surgeons in these times are more specialist than they used to be, and it was essential to have a hip specialist , as opposed to an upper limb expert, to instruct in this case because so much featured on the percentage chances of a hip replacement in the future,and then a revision to the replacement.
Much focused as it often does on the nature of the claimant’s work and how the cycling injury impacts on this.
