Court Sends Out Warning To Cyclists

21 Oct 2015, 2:44 PM

A cyclist found himself in court after hitting and seriously injuring a pedestrian during London’s rush hour.

Reeve Allen, 26, from Southwark, rode through a red light and struck City analyst Anthony Da Costa, 34, leaving him with a fractured skull.

Mr Allen was ordered to pay £1,085 in fines, costs and a victim surcharge – and Mr Da Costa is examining the possibility of bringing a civil claim for damages.

In this article, cycle claims lawyer James Pritchard examines what happens when a pedestrian is the injured party in a bike accident and the steps cyclists can take to protect themselves from legal action.
