What happened?

Our client, the manager of a pharmacy department, was riding her bicycle north on Wandsworth Bridge Road. When she was passing the junction with Narborough Street, a long truck going the same direction was at a standstill before the junction, allowing traffic to go through. At this time the third party Honda car driver crossed the junction from Oakbury Road to Narborough St. Our client couldn't see the Honda coming from behind the truck, and as a result collided with the rear of the front passenger door. Our client's shoulder smashed the car window and as they fell to the ground. Liability was split 50/50.
