But he said Mr Deegan was 60% responsible, for his ‘recklessness in cycling through a red light’.

He therefore awarded Mr Deegan €20,000 in damages; a 60% reduction from the €50,000 he would otherwise have received to compensate for his injuries.

The issue of how the costs of the case will be divided between the parties has not yet been decided.

Mr Deegan had been cycling along the eastbound carriage of Eglington Road, on his regular commute to his bicycle shop in Sandymount.

Judge Keane noted that Mr Deegan had been a cyclist all his life, and that he had cycled that route regularly for four years.

The judge said there was an uninterrupted line of stationary traffic on the eastbound side of Eglington Road, on either side of some pedestrian lights.

Mr Deegan claimed the lights were amber when he cycled across them, but Judge Keane said he preferred eyewitness evidence that they were red.

The judge noted that Mr Deegan alleged Ms McPartlin rolled over his foot while she was nudging forward to pull out, looking in the opposite direction.

London police appeal for help over cyclist who headbutted pedestrian after running red light . Police have appealed for assistance to identify a cyclist who headbutted a In the video, the victim can be seen walking across the road when the cyclist runs through a red light and nearly collides with him.

He said the cyclist had thumped the bonnet of the jeep as hard as he could, and Ms McPartlin reversed her vehicle off his foot.

Ms McPartlin claimed that she had not seen anything coming from her right, and that she travelled the route twice a week and generally waited for the pedestrian lights to go red before emerging, as she felt it was safer that way.

She claimed Mr Deegan failed to take reasonable care for his own safety, had failed to stop at a red light and had caused the collision.

Judge Keane said, on the balance of probabilities, that Mr Deegan had recklessly broken the red light at the pedestrian crossing, and that while he continued along the Eglington Road, Ms McPartlin had negligently assumed it was no longer necessary to keep a proper lookout because the lights had changed.

Unable to do that, he was forced to stop instead. Having stopped, he put his left foot on the floor before Ms McPartlin noticed him, and her vehicle rolled onto his foot, the court heard.
