I was off work for almost three months after fracturing my leg in a cycling accident – I was knocked off my bike by a speeding driver, how much compensation am I likely to get?
The amount of compensation awarded will depend on the severity of your injury and the impact that it had on your life – your accident sounds like it had quite a big one! But still, the amount you get will depend on things like the amount of wages you lost, and the inconvenience of not being able to cycle, or drive a car. You can get an estimate of how much compensation you could be awarded by using our compensation calculator on our website: www.accidentadvicehelpline.co.uk.
