The family of a science teacher, who was killed in a collision with a car while cycling home from the school in which he worked, has been awarded 580,000 pounds in fatal bike accident compensation.
David Kerslake (44) from Bolton, Greater Manchester, was cycling along Compton Way in Bolton in October 2004 when the driver of a car travelling in the opposite direction suffered a hypoglycaemic attack and lost control of his vehicle. David was killed instantly, leaving a wife and young daughter.
David´s wife, Jacqueline, made a claim for fatal bike accident compensation against the negligent driver, whose car insurance company were quick to acknowledge liability. However, it was not until almost five years after David´s death that the amount of bike accident compensation to be paid was finally agreed upon.
As a tribute to David, the Sharples School at which he worked gained special science status two years after his death.
