Split liabilities in Banstead cycling accident claim

A Surrey man has been awarded a significant sum in cycling accident compensation after his personal injury solicitors agreed a settlement with motor insurers before going back to the High Court for judgement.

The accident occurred in 2004, when the cyclist was just 13 years old. He had been cycling near his home in Banstead when he was involved in a collision with a Ford Fiesta car.

Injuries suffered by the cyclist, now 21, included traumatic brain injury, lacerated liver, fractured ribs and jaw – he was left in a coma following the incident, the effects of which are still present.

The compensation settlement was agreed on a 50-50 liability basis, but it was approved by the judge who recognised that although the damages award could not "give back the hopes" the young cyclist had held before the car accident, it would make a difference to his life in the future.

The man's personal injury solicitors did not comment on the circumstances of the claim and it is believed that the amount of the settlement will remain undisclosed.
