Self-Employed Photographer Instructs Serious Injury Lawyers To Investigate And Help Support His Recovery
A cyclist from Southwark seriously hurt in a collision with a car has revealed his ‘devastation’ that his injuries could affect him for the rest of his life.
Adam Davies suffered a catalogue of injuries, including a head injury, in the incident which happened at the junction of College Road and Dulwich Common on the A205 in Dulwich, London.
Adam, 45, from near to Elephant & Castle, was taken to hospital by ambulance where he was treated for his injuries. He also complained of severe rib pain and suffered temporary memory loss known as post-traumatic amnesia.
He has now instructed serious injury experts at Irwin Mitchell to investigate what happened and help him access the specialist rehabilitation and therapies he requires to help maximise his recovery.
He wishes to thank those who helped him following the crash, and is also appealing for witnesses or anyone with footage of the incident or the aftermath to come forward.
Expert Opinion“The last two months have been incredibly difficult for Adam since the crash. He sustained a serious head injury, and while he was cared for by the paramedics and hospital staff, an injury of this kind could have potential long-term complications.
We’re therefore appealing to anyone who may have more information on what happened or possibly some footage of the lead-up or aftermath of the collision. Any detail could prove helpful in our investigation and assist us in securing vital support for Adam.”

Adam was cycling north on College Road at around 4pm on 13 July when he was involved in a collision with a car travelling in the other direction. The driver of the car turned across Adam’s path, attempting to turn right on to Dulwich Common. Unable to avoid the collision, Adam was thrown from his bike into the centre of the road.
Adam, who was wearing a helmet at the time, hit his head and suffered cuts and bruises. He has no memory of the first hour following the incident, but told his legal team that the driver left the scene and he was helped by a bystander before the ambulance arrived. The police are now investigating the incident.
Adam works as a self-employed photographer and lives with his wife, Yuriko.
He said: “I’ve been a cyclist for a long time and have always been careful on the roads, but since the crash I’ve struggled to find the confidence to get back on my bike.
“I can’t recall anything for about an hour after the incident; all I remember is the car coming towards me and then everything’s a bit of a blur.
“To be told I had a head injury was such a shock and I feel so much upset and devastation when I think that this might affect me for the rest of my life.
“I want to say a huge thank you to the bystander that helped me that day, and to the ambulance crew and the team at Kings College Hospital who looked after me. All I hope for now is that someone will be able to help provide me with the answers I need so I can finally piece together exactly what happened that day and also have access to the specialist ongoing care I require as part of my recovery. I’d be so grateful.”
