A CTC member has been awarded with £2,000 compensation for an accident caused by an oil spill that took place 2 years ago.

Antony Di Domenico suffered from arm, knee and hip injuries after slipping on the oil spillage on the road in Gargstang, Lancashire in June 2007.

Initially, he made a claim to the Highways Agency and the Motor Insurance Bureau, but it was rejected by them. It was rejected because the accident was not reported to the police and, therefore, it was not proved.

The solicitor of Di Domenico appealed this in the court and the claim was won by him. Di Domenico said that the bruises recovered after weeks and it took months for the hip to recover. He continued that, “there is some muscular pain in his right hip”.

There was a witness to the accident and he informed to Di Domenico that the oil spillage was caused by a farmer and the farmer was trying to cover it with sand.

The CTC advised to all the cyclists to report against the poor road conditions and try to reduce the number of similar accidents.
