Cycling talk

On Tuesday, I gave a talk on cycling law at the transport special interest group for the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers. The talk was on rules of the road for cyclists, the case of Malasi -v- Attmed (which I have blogged about previously) and some areas of loss specific to cyclists. I'll post my notes here shortly.

I was joined by Martin Porter QC of 2 Temple Gardens, who spoke on cycle helmets. You can find his paper on this topic here which is well worth a look, particularly for those who seek to blame cyclists for not wearing a helmet:
