At What’s My Claim Worth, we have acted for many clients who have suffered from broken or fractured bones as a result or a road traffic accident.
One such case involved a 56-year-old client, who was the victim of a hit-and-run accident. Our client had been riding his bike at a slow speed when he was hit from behind by a passing car, knocking him off his bike.

The driver of the vehicle drove off, leaving our client in the middle of the road in a state of shock. Our client managed to walk to a nearby hospital, where he was treated for his injuries. Following surgery to fix a fractured wrist, our client was detained in hospital for several days before being discharged.
As a result of the injury, our client – who was a gardener – lost out on three months of earnings. The medical report also confirmed that, as a result of the broken wrist, our client would be unable to perform manual work for many years due to the degenerative changes that the fracture had caused.
At the time our client contacted us, he was unsure whether he could make a claim or not, as he did not have the details of the driver. However, we advised him that he could make a claim through the Motor Insurers Bureau, who compensate victims of untraced or uninsured drivers.
What’s My Claim Worth were able to successfully secure our client over £34,000 in compensation for his injuries, which took into account the out-of-pocket expenses and loss of earnings our client incurred, and the fact that he may have to change the type of work that he does in future.
