An injured 28 year-old cyclist from London has resorted to a crowd funding campaign to fight a legal battle against a cab firm who are suing him for £5,000 in damages.
Sasha Evans was hit by a speeding taxi whilst cycling London in January 2015. He was hospitalised for 6 days and sustained multiple fractures, including his tibia, fibia and orbital bones. He suffered contusion to his lung and has been left with facial scarring as a result. He was fortunate not to have suffered worse.
As if getting hit by a taxi wasn't bad enough, the situation has escalated through no fault of his own when the taxi firm tried to claim £5,000 in damages to the car, and he is now caught up in a complicated legal battle with the company. This is proving to contain many hidden costs - from solicitors fees to medical reports - all of which add to the stressful ordeal of an impending court case.
Sasha who is a teaching assistant as well as a musician and student at Goldsmith’s College has only recently managed to get back on his bike after months of physiotherapy and four months off work.
