Cycling Accident Injury Claim
When cyclists are involved in accidents, injuries can range from cuts and bruises to broken bones, as well as serious head and spinal trauma. Sadly in some cases, accidents can also result in fatalities.
Specialist Cycling Accident Injury Claim Solicitors
Cyclists are vulnerable road users, and sometimes no amount of safety precautions can account for a reckless driver, poor road surface conditions, or faulty equipment.
The number of cyclists on Britain’s roads has grown significantly in recent years. Research has shown that 43% of the population now either own a bike or have access to one.
Cycling accidents have risen broadly in line with the number of cyclists. According to figures supplied by the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) 18,477 people were injured in bicycle accidents that were reported to the police in the UK in 2016. Of these, over 3,000 people were seriously injured. A further 102 people were killed.
Many cycling casualties are not reported to the police, even when the cyclist is inured badly enough to be taken to hospital. There could be two or three times as many seriously injured cyclists and double the number of slightly injured, than the statistics reflect.
If you have been injured in a cycling accident, you could be entitled to claim cycle injury compensation if:
- The accident was caused by the actions of another road user
- The road or cycle lane was in poor condition
- Your injury was due to equipment failure, whether the bicycle or the helmet
If you were injured in other circumstances you may still be able to make an injury claim, so please contact us for expert advice.
What our clients say
Mark was knowledgeable, resourceful and professional.
Ms B. Norwich
Hannah made everything so easy and simple for me. Even during the pandemic, the virtual doctors appointment was great and everything went smoothly. Just want to say thank you. The whole process was simple and had a great outcome.
Just wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for everything that you have done for Mum over the past two years. I know that at times it has not been easy, but I am so grateful that you have explained (sometimes numerous times!) everything in detail so that Mum has been able to make sensible decisions with your guidance. I know that Mum is glad that the case is going to be settled shortly, as am I and this will enable her to get her life in order again and move forwards with a more positive attitude.
I know that you have just been ‘doing your job’, but I just wanted to say thanks!
