Cyclist Awarded £100,000 in Accident Claims Compensation Following Road Traffic Accident

Just a reminder that you should keep your children safe at all times. Here is some recent news about a cyclist who was injured on the UK roads. Thankfully they did recover, and were able to make an accident claim which aided their recovery. Nonetheless, even though they picked up some accident claims compensation, you wouldn’t want this happening to any member of your own family. Read on to find out more about this particular story with a word of warning.


A cyclist was awarded a six figure sum after suffering life-changing injuries following a collision with a motorbike.

As a result of the severe injuries, 48-year-old Heath Marshall was forced to quit his job in mechanics after he was hit by a motorbike when cycling. He suffered a fracture to his skull and serious leg injuries following the accident.

Following his accident, he sought personal injury accident claims compensation for his injuries as well as the damage it had caused and was awarded an out of court settlement of £100,000. He suffered post-traumatic stress and flashbacks as a result of the accident.

Cycling Accidents: Claiming Accident Claims Compensation

Regardless of how careful you are on the roads, there is a chance that someone else will not be as vigilant, which could result in you obtaining an injury through no fault of your own. A cycling accident can cause serious and life-changing injuries. If you have been injured as a result of recklessness, the Accident Claim Web can help you get the compensation you deserve.

To claim compensation, the team of expert solicitors at the Accident Claims Web will use their wealth of experience and evidence you provide them to build the strongest possible case.

Objective APER Released by the French Association for Prevention of Accidents

News from France now, and The French Association for the Prevention of Accidents (MAIF), a partner of the Ministry of Education for road safety in schools, has developed a digital tool called “objective APER”.

This CD is a companion resource for the teaching staff to organize the progressive acquisition of elementary students skills for obtaining the certificate of early education for road safety awareness.

This resource, which received the prestigious RIP Mark of 2014 (recognized for its educational value) can be used in different ways depending on the choice of teachers: in its entirety as a tool for training and validation of the various stages of the REA, Cycle 1 Cycle 3, or as for use in the scenario where school students examine the issue of sharing the space of the street and road for both cars and pedestrians.

The numerous free images offer excellent support, and can be used educationally as part of class teachings where children and pupils can use the knowledge in their every day life.

The MAIF Prevention Association is committed to free “objective APER” available to all kindergartens and elementary schools. Copies will be sent to education authorities and departmental services of national education before the end of January 2014.
