Road traffic accident leads to seven-figure damages claim

Road traffic accident leads to seven-figure damages claim

A seven-figure compensation settlement is being sought by a man left with life-changing injuries following a road traffic accident.

According to the Bristol Evening Post, Tobias Phethean-Hubble sustained a serious head injury when he was knocked off his bicycle by a car while on his way to work in Bristol in November 2005.

Mr Phethean-Hubble, who was 16-years-old at the time of the incident, is now confined to a wheelchair and, according to his mother Shani, will require extensive care for the rest of his life.

Consequently, his mother has taken legal action against the insurer of driver Sam Coles on the basis that his negligence is to blame for her son's injuries.

It has since been ruled that Mr Coles was 66 per cent responsible for the incident, meaning compensation could be awarded if a case at the Court of Appeal rules in Mr Phethean-Hubble's favour.

Recently, the Horse and Hound reported that horse rider Michaela Devereux is seeking damages after being left with a severe head injury after a road accident in the New Forest.
