What happened?

Our client was commuting by bicycle from his office on Fleet Street to his home in Islington at approximately 8pm. As he passed a parked car on Copenhagen Street, the driver opened his door into his path. There was insufficient time to avoid a collision, and our client hit the car door. His left little finger was crushed between the edge of the door and the handle bars of the bike. In addition, he came off his bike and suffered cuts and bruises to his knees and elbows.
