Cycling legend awarded payout

Posted in: Bicycle Accidents Road Traffic Accidents Shoulder Injuries 

British cycling legend 84-year-old Brian Robinson has been awarded compensation after he suffered serious injuries in a cycling accident near his home in West Yorkshire. Mr Robinson had been cycling with some friends on the 16 July 2014 when a car knocked him off his bike. He suffered a serious break to his left collarbone, six broken ribs and a punctured lung. He was recently awarded £15,000 for his injuries.

Brian Robinson was the first Briton to finish the Tour de France in 1955 and was the first to win a stage in 1958. At the age of 84, he still rides 80 miles a week and was out on one of his twice-weekly rides when the accident happened. He was back on his bike only six weeks after the fall.

“enabled me to get back on my bike as quickly as possible”

Mr Robinson said that he was “pleasantly surprised” by how well the accident was handled through his British Cycling membership. He said: “I have had a great medical once-over and I am obviously pleased with the compensation which has enabled me to get back on my bike as quickly as possible.

The £15,000 personal injury compensation package Mr Robinson received covered both the cost of his bike and medical expenses.

Mr Robinson has often been described as a ‘trailblazer’ for cycling in Britain, said to have inspired the likes of Tom Simpson and Barry Hoban.
