My son was involved in an accident yesterday. A cyclist decided

Customer Question

My son was involved in an accident yesterday. A cyclist decided to do a u Turk and pulled out I front of my son without looking. My son couldn't avoid hitting off his bicycle. The cyclist want hurt and stood straight up. He admitted being at fault to both my son and policewoman. The damage to my sons car is a cracked windscreen broken headlight and broken wing mirror. He rang his ins company and was told it is my sons fault and that he will have to pay £300 excess plus the cyclist can claim from my sons ins!! They said that the cyclist is a vulnerable rd user so isn't at fault. Is this correct? It seems very unfair. My son has been told his car maybe a right off!!
