Road traffic accident claim success for biker

George Ide LLP recently concluded the settlement of a road traffic accident claim involving a motorcyclist who collided with a motor vehicle while it had been attempting to turn right into the entrance of a garden centre.

The motorcyclist approached George Ide because his insurance company's Panel Solicitors had indicated that there were no reasonable prospects of success in his case and had ceased acting for him.

The personal injury solicitors at George Ide LLP considered the relevant papers in relation to the road traffic accident claim and took the view that there was a reasonable prospect of success for the claimant.

Within a relatively short period of time George Ide successfully persuaded the third party insurers that their insured had been negligent in failing to look behind him, notwithstanding adverse independent witness evidence, and that a 50/50 settlement would be appropriate.

That settlement was agreed by the third party insurers and the claimant has now received a sum of compensation in excess of £6,000 on that basis.

Most of us now use or have access to 'social media' of some sort. Twitter and Facebook are very much part of our everyday lives enabling any of us to communicate and express our views to both close friends and a wider audience.


Negotiating an Agreement – Pitfalls to avoid

We all form contracts every day. Not all contracts need to be in writing (though some, such as some land contracts, do). When you buy a loaf of bread from your local shop, you offer to purchase it, the offer is accepted by the baker, you pay them your money and acquire your loaf. Congratulations, you have successfully entered into and performed a contract.


Optimism over Chichester weather response

It's a fine balance for councils and businesses: when extreme weather strikes it is important that things carry on as normally as possible and that the typical routines and rhythms of life do not give way unnecessarily to hysteria and disruption.

Hundreds of people every year suffer road traffic-related injuries due to motorists driving intoxicated. And, despite campaigns from road safety organisations and emergency services around winter time, the chances are that many more will be found by police to be drunk driving over this Christmas period.
