A man who suffered serious physical harm, including head injuries, has been awarded £650,000 in compensation.
In July 2006, Antony Williams was riding his motorbike to work in the Common Hill area of Bristol when a tipper van pulled across his path.
As a result of the impact, the 33-year-old had to undergo multiple operations and has been left with a permanent disability.
He is unable to work full-time and must use morphine patches and a crutch to lessen his pain.
Mr Williams, who is a father-of-two, said he has a goal of being able to work a 22-hour week and noted the money he has been awarded from his claim will go towards rebuilding his life.
The tipper was being driven by Wayne Giles, who was employed by Black Horse Contractors - which is an independent groundworks and civil engineering firm based in the south-west.
In 2007, Mr Giles was prosecuted for driving without due care and attention.
