British Cycling member Martin Rose has successfully recovered damages in relation to a road traffic accident, which occurred on 26 January 2011, as he was cycling along London Road.
As Martin was travelling on his bicycle along London Road and as he approached the junction of Longdown Lane to his nearside, the Defendant emerged onto London Road attempting to turn right when it was unsafe to do so, crossing Martin’s path. Martin attempted to take evasive action, though was unable to avoid a collision with the Defendant’s vehicle.
As a result of the impact Martin was thrown from his bicycle and sustained personal injury, damage to his bicycle and other consequential losses.
Liability for the accident was admitted by the defendant. Martin received compensation for his personal injury and the damage to his bicycle.
Martin was represented by Tamsin Keogh in Leigh Day and Co.’s Cycling and Sports Injuries Team and his claim was supported and funded by British Cycling.
