Compensation for cyclist hit by uninsured driver

A cyclist who was knocked off his bike by an uninsured driver in Harborough, Leicestershire has been awarded road traffic accident compensation for his personal injuries.

The accident occurred when the driver failed to give way to the cyclist as he turned his vehicle right into another road, causing a collision the cyclist could not avoid. The rider suffered a sprained ankle and broken wrist as a result of the incident and had to spend a night at the Leicester Royal Infirmary.

The 35-year-old driver appeared before Harborough Magistrates Court and pleaded guilty to driving whilst uninsured and without due care and attention. He later claimed that he had not seen the cyclist due to the sun being in his eyes when he had turned.

The cyclist's personal injury solicitor told the court, "In interview [the driver] said he had been turning right when he was hit by something yellow. He saw a person rolling around on the floor."

The driver was sentenced to a nine-month driving ban and was fined £335. He was also ordered to pay £200 XX1XX to the injured cyclist.
