Hit by car: Damages for scarring and refraining from cycling?
Hi all, I'm about to settle for an accident I was recently in. A car hit me while I was cycling and the driver assumes full responsibility. I had a fracture to a limb and am getting damages for that but I believe I also deserve damages for several readily noticeable, and one very large, areas of permanent scarring to my limbs. I also believe I should be compensated for becoming too afraid to bike commute for 1 year (where previously cycling was my main mode of transport 6-8 months out of the year). My lawyer has advised that I am unlikely to get damages for either the scarring or change in cycling habits precipitated by the accident. I'm wondering if anyone else here has experience receiving damages for either of these losses.
Thanks in advance.
