Luke, aged 35, was injured in a road traffic accident while cycling home from work, just three months after his son was born prematurely by emergency caesarean.
Luke’s bicycle was bright green, with two large flashing lights at its front and rear, and he was wearing a high visibility jacket and a fluorescent “hump” cover over his rucksack, as he cycled down Balham Hill in South West London, using the CS7 cycle superhighway lane. Despite all of this, it seems that Luke was not seen by the Defendant, as he pulled out leaving Luke no time to react and he collided with the side of his vehicle.
Watch Luke tell his story
As a result of the accident, Luke suffered with psychiatric sequelae, various soft tissue injures and fractured ribs amongst others. Most notably however, Luke suffered with chronic pain and a worsening of his pre-existing ankylosing spondylitis, a condition which requires sufferers to remain active. Consequently, Luke was not able to care properly for his partner and young son as he had been doing and was continuing to experience difficulties.
