In a recent Personal Injury case, the Plaintiff was riding a bicycle with the Defendant riding alongside. The Defendant’s bicycle hit a piece of wood lying on the road, causing the Defendant to veer and collide with the Plaintiff so that the Plaintiff fell to the ground and was struck by a motor vehicle. The driver of the motor vehicle was not at fault. The Plaintiff suffered significant personal injuries in the accident and claimed damages from the Defendant in negligence.
The Court found that in the circumstances the Defendant could and should have seen the piece of wood in adequate time to take evasive action and avoid the accident. Reasonable care on the road by the Defendant would have avoided the motor vehicle accident. The Plaintiff succeeded and was awarded damages and costs.
