A cyclist from Sheffield whose life has been “changed completely” since his accident in which he was hit by a car is seeking compensation to pay for his essential rehabilitation.
An article in the South Yorkshire times reported that Peter Vaughan, 63 was cycling whilst on holiday in Dublin visiting his son. He was was hit from behind by a car and knocked unconscious. The accident caused multiple fractures to his leg and skull, damage to his kidney, and injuries to his shoulder and eye.
Mr Vaughan was an architect and town planner and along with his wife he had taken early retirement a couple of years ago to allow them to spend more time doing things they enjoy and visiting family. He now finds it difficult visiting his elderly father who lives 130 miles away.
Following nine months of extensive hospital treatment, four operations on his right leg and attendance at 23 outpatients’ clinics for physiotherapy, Peter must still wear a metal frame on his leg and can only walk using crutches.
It is hoped that compensation for the injuries Mr Vaughan suffered will allow him access to the highest level of care and rehabilitation available.
