Bikelawyer settles Swiss filtering claim

Bikelawyer has settled a claim for a biker injured in a road traffic accident in Switzerland after his insurers told him that he wouldn’t be able to claim.

Mr H was filtering when a Swiss Government employee pulled out of a parked position, causing a collision.

Filtering is not legal in Switzerland, however Bikelawyer successfully argued that the government employee was also partially at fault, and the claim was settled on a 50/50 basis.

This result highlights the value in instructing specialist solicitors; if Mr H had listened to his insurers and their appointed solicitors, he would never have brought a claim
