Assessment of Damages

On the 24th March 2000, the claimant was riding his pedal cycle ~ ~

towards the Bog Walk main road. He was proceeding on Church Road.

Although there was no stop sign at the intersection, the claimant said he

stopped, and I accept he did stop and make a left turn. His evidence is that

one would have to stop because of the busy nature of the Bog Walk main

road. He denied the suggestion that he was going across the road. He said

he made a left turn and while riding on the side of the road he was struck

fkom behind.

He regained consciousness in the Kingston Public Hospital some five

days later. He had a wound to the back of his head, and he was in traction.

He had pains in his left knee, left shoulder, and back of head, he complains
