Cyclist left paralysed seeks compensation from driver

A man from Chepstow, Wales, is seeking road traffic accident compensation after suffering life-changing personal injuries in a crash.

The 24-year-old had been cycling to work when he was involved in a collision on the A48 in December 2009. The crash left him with a broken back, ribs and collarbone as well as a damaged spleen and kidneys, and a fractured skull. An artery was also pulled from his neck in the accident, causing him to suffer a stroke.

The man sent five weeks in a coma at the Royal Gwent before being moved to the University of Wales Hospital in Cardiff. He was later transferred to a rehabilitation centre in the city.

Due to the severity of his injuries he has been left paralysed below the chest and has limited feeling in the right hand side of his body.

The accident has ended the claimant's dreams of joining the army; where he was due to start training just three months after the crash took place.

The injury victim has now launched a claim against the driver of the vehicle involved in the accident for more than £300,000 in road traffic accident compensation.
