Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
You are to blame as you should have looked before you opened the door.
However it is likely that a Court would reduce any award for contributory fault.
had he not been cycling then he would not have been injuired
However primary blame lays with you because you should have checked before opening the door
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
Should I inform my car insurance. What is the likely punishment that I would receive. Ie jail, I have protected no claims bonus would this get affected. Should the claimant contavt my car insurance or reach out for personal injury.
Would i go to jail. Would my car insurance cover the claimants injurys. Also the cyclist was driving on the pavement should he not be partly at fault
The cyclist at the time was driving on the pavement should he not be partly to blame
Also if the claim goes a ahead would this affect my no claims (this is currently protected)
