The news comes as a court in Sevilla has sentenced a man and his insurance company to compensate the rider of a moped with almost €32,000 after the rider had been involved in an accident with a dog belonging to the man.

The incident occurred on November 28, 2012, when the plaintiff was riding his moped on the A-8100, which connects Utrera and Carmona, in Sevilla Province. A man was walking his dog on the same stretch of road, when suddenly the animal ran into the path of the rider, causing him to swerve to avoid the dog and ending up crashing his moped.

As a result of the crash, the court heard that the rider suffered injuries including “a fracture of the left radius and ulna, and an undisplaced peri-prosthetic fracture of the right knee plateau-tibial” which needed two surgeries and the placement of a new prosthesis.
