More and more of us are enjoying the healthy lifestyle benefits that cycling gives us and whilst most journeys end successfully, 19,000 accidents happen each year.
Most cycling accidents happen in urban areas where most cycling takes place. Almost two thirds of cyclists killed or seriously injured are involved in collisions at, or near, a road junction, with T junctions being the most commonly involved.
Roundabouts are particularly dangerous junctions for cyclists. Not surprisingly, the severity of injuries suffered by cyclists increases with the speed limit, meaning that riders are more likely to suffer serious or fatal injuries on higher speed roads.
As well as being knocked off their bikes by motorists either at road junctions or through a lack of awareness elsewhere, we also help cyclists claim compensation when the accident is caused due to lack of road maintenance.
Our personal injury specialists will listen to you, assess your claim for free and let you know if you have a case for compensation. So if you feel you have been injured as a result of someone else's negligence then contact us today and let us help you gain the compensation you deserve.
