Injury claim news – Man receives compensation for 2009 road traffic accident

30th January 2012

The former tennis coach had been cycling near Potters Bar when a Land Rover collided with him. The driver did not stop at the scene.

The cyclist suffered serious injuries including a life-changing brain injury, and was in a coma for three weeks. After he regained consciousness he stayed at Bloomsbury’s National Hospital for Neurosurgery and Neurology for six months.

The man now requires round-the-clock care, is wheelchair-bound, and has had to have a feeding tube fitted.

The driver of the Land Rover was found to be a 66-year-old man who should not have been driving. At the time of the car accident he had been suffering from cataracts and glaucoma which severely hindered his view of the road.

He admitted to dangerous driving and was sentenced to eight months in prison.

The injured man’s car accident claim has resulted in him being awarded £4 million compensation for his suffering. The money will be put towards his life-long care needs.
