The Facts about Lisa’s Cycling Accident and Settlement Process

Lisa was cycling in Redfern, NSW, on June 19, 2014, when a car abruptly turned across her path at an intersection, resulting in a collision. She sustained a fractured clavicle due to the impact.

Following the accident, Lisa underwent medical treatment including surgery and physical therapy for her fractured clavicle. The injury impacted her daily activities and ability to work for a period of time.

Legal proceedings led to a settlement through the acceptance of a Calderbank offer. Lisa received a total of $275,000, inclusive of costs, aimed at covering her medical expenses, loss of income, and ongoing rehabilitation needs.

Investigation & gathering evidence

After that, our Bicycle Accident Lawyers will brief medical specialists to examine you and provide expert evidence reports. From those reports, our Bicycle Accident Lawyers will formulate how the injury has impacted you and your family at work and at home.


Attendance at informal settlement meeting

Our Bicycle Accident Lawyers also formulate your damages demand and appoint an out-of-court meeting to negotiate the resolution of your claim settlement.


Case settled or court proceedings

Statistically, more than 97% of compensation claims are settled out of court. In many cases, the claim is resolved successfully during the informal settlement meeting, and you will receive the compensation to which you are entitled.

In rare cases, if your claim has not been resolved at this stage, our Bicycle Accident Lawyers will take it further and help you get the compensation to which you are entitled according to the law.
