Default Public raise £45,000 for cyclist ordered to pay woman who stepped into road

A cyclist facing bankruptcy after being ordered to pay a woman who
stepped in front of him while using her phone has thanked the public who
donated more than £45,000 to help him. The fundraising drive has raised
more than double its initial target of £21,300 to meet the estimated
legal costs of Robert Hazeldean. Mr Hazeldean – who is also facing a
£100,000 court bill – said he would be ‘forever thankful’ to the more
than 3,000 people who donated to the gofundme appeal. A hearing to
decide the final court costs will take place at a later date and
crowdfunders say that anything left from the end total will be donated
to ActionAid. Mr Hazeldean had sponsored a child through the charity for
13 years, but recently had to stop because of the financial pressures
around his case.

It's good news that the victim will get her compensation and that her
legal fees will be covered.

Indeed.
But we are told that responsible cyclists are of course insured.
