Personal Injury Claims - Cyclist injured in road accident awarded 5 million.

October 2003

 

 

 

Richard Harrison was riding his bicycle when he was hit by a car, near his home in Hexham, Northumberland, in May 1999. He suffered horrific head injuries when he was knocked off his bike. He was awarded 5 million in a successful personal injury claim. Before the accident, Harrison had a successful career with Analytical Environmental Services. The accident left him with severe brain damage, paralysis in his legs and arms, and speech problems. 

 

A report in cyclingnews.com had said that the third party insurers had initially claimed "contributory negligence" against Harrison because he was not wearing a helmet at the time of the crash. The insurance company later withdrew this claim and agreed to an out-of-court settlement of 5 million in compensation.

 

Harrison's personal injury solicitors have stated that insurers were trying to use helmets as an excuse to reduce damages to cyclists. According to cyclingnews.com, this is the third personal injury claims case where insurers have used the negligence argument - and the third time that the argument has been dropped and the case settled out of court. 


The compensation is calculated to meet the cost of Harrison's ongoing medical and therapeutic care and could reach up to 5m or more. An Interim Payment of 450,000 was made in 2002. The latest will see a one-off payment of 1.3m and then annual payments of 180,000 for the rest of Harrison's life.
