Sandesh Singh secures acquittal of HGV driver charged with causing serious injury by dangerous driving
Sandesh represented the driver of a large tipper lorry which was involved in a collision with a cyclist on Cheyne Walk in January 2022.
The collision occurred as the lorry was turning left onto Battersea Bridge. It was alleged that the driver failed to check his mirrors and use his indicators appropriately. The cyclist was drawn under the wheels of the lorry and suffered serious injuries. Her right leg was amputated below the knee.
At the conclusion of a six-day trial, the jury acquitted the driver of causing serious injury by dangerous driving and all available alternatives (dangerous driving and careless driving).
Sandesh was instructed by John Dance of DWF.
