According to the Lutterworth Mail, Stephen Whitmore sustained a fractured wrist and a sprained ankle after a collision with a car on Highfield Street, Harborough, in February of this year.
An investigation into this incident established that the negligence of the motorist - Robin Perry - had caused the crash, meaning he was ordered to hand over a sum of £200 in damages to Mr Whitmore following a case heard at Harborough Magistrates' Court.
During this case, it was revealed that the driver was also uninsured and had operated without due care and attention when failing to give way to the cyclist.
Perry claimed he had not seen Mr Whitmore - who subsequently had to spend the night at Leicester Royal Infirmary, an institution managed by the University Hospitals of Leicester NHS Trust - because the sun was in his eyes.
