All motorists have a duty to take care for the safety of other road users, including cyclists.
In this case, the young driver just wasn’t looking where he was going.
Although we were never able to prove it, we always suspected that the driver was on his phone or messing with his radio.
Phil suffered nasty head and back injuries as a result of the accident. He was away from his work for several weeks.
We quickly persuaded the insurers for the car driver to admit liability.
We then obtained expert medical evidence about our client’s injuries and helped Mr O’Grady recover over £30,000 in compensation.
