A GBP 580,000 injury compensation payout has been made to the family of a cyclist who was killed on his way home from his teaching job in Manchester.
David Kerslake, 44, was employed as head of science at Sharphes School, Bolton, when he was knocked off his bike in a tragic accident.
The diabetic driver of the car that hit him had suffered a hypoglycaemic attack, temporarily losing control of his vehicle and crashing into Mr Kerslake.
His wife Jacqueline said the injury compensation payout will allow her to provide for herself and their daughter’s future.
"It was horrendous going through the process, but at least it gave some recognition for his life being lost," she commented.
The news follows reports that a father-of-two, who is facing a lifetime of acute disability after hospital blunders following a serious car crash, is in line to receive a multi-million pound injury compensation settlement.
