We acted for a cyclist (aged 63) who was cycling along a country lane near to Cheltenham, Glos during June 2011, when a foxhound from a farmers hunt accidentally collided with his bicycle, causing him to fall to the ground and fracture his left shoulder. It was a serious fracture and he was admitted to hospital where he underwent surgery to fix it. He is a making a slow but steady recovery and the prognosis for the future is encouraging. We were in correspondence with the insurers of the farmers’ hunt, who initially disputed liability. They later agreed, however, to compensate our client without the need for us to issue proceedings.

S. J. Edney solicitors obtained compensation of £35,000 for this client during 2012
