If you have read our page on motorbike accident claim, you would understand the plight of cyclists better. If motorbike is considered to provide less protection to the rider, bicycle provides absolutely no protection at all. With recreational cycling gaining positive momentum in the UK, we get to see more and more cyclists on the road. The negative twist to this is that bicycle accident is becoming more common leading to a large number of cycling accident claims being filed year after year. Motor vehicle drivers should understand that cyclists too have the right to use the road and they are far more vulnerable than a car or bus driver. Some of the common causes of bicycle accidents are:-
- Collision with another vehicle
- Poor road surfaces
- Bicycle failure
- Collision with animals or pedestrians
Unfortunately over a hundred cyclists meet with fatal bicycle accident every year and over 2000 people suffer serious bicycle accident injury. And in some cases the cyclist too is responsible for the accident such as riding without lights, ignoring traffic lights etc. Whatever be the situation that caused the accident, a claim can be filed.

Our solicitors will give you free advice on the above to enable you to make an informed decision. Our solicitors have handled a large number of cycling accident claims and sought adequate compensation for the claimants.
