The widow of British Cycling member Rod Robinson has finally concluded her claim against the driver responsible for the death of her late husband, and his insurers. A substantial six-figure sum was recovered on behalf of Mrs Robinson following the tragic death of Rod on the 12th August 2003.

Rod was killed whilst out on a club run on the A48 near Bridgend in South Wales. Having initially admitted liability on behalf of the responsible motorist, Mark Harris, his insurers Frizzell, then instructed solicitors to retract that admission and Mrs Robinson's claim for compensation was fully defended.

Following expert accident reconstruction evidence being obtained, an agreed settlement was achieved.

Mrs Robinson was represented by the cycling and sports injuries team at Leigh Day. The claim was funded and supported by British Cycling. For more information please contact the cycling and sports injuries team on 020 7650 1200.
