Compensation claim news

Driver apologises after motorcycle accident

The partner and family of a biker killed in a head-on motorcycle accident have received a "heartfelt apology" from the driver who collided with him.

At the inquest into the 50-year-old's death, the coroner's court heard that the driver had experienced a black-out just moments before his Peugeot 306 veered across the A1035 near Beverley, Yorkshire in May this year and crashed into the biker.

It emerged that the pensioner had received medical treatment in the form of an anti-biotic injection just prior to driving that day, but a consultant physician, speaking at the inquest said, "It is not possible to directly attribute the loss of consciousness to Teicoplanin."

A verdict of accidental death was recorded.

It is unclear as to whether the family will be pursuing a compensation claim with the driver's insurers after the fatal motorcycle accident.
