The number of cyclists on Britain’s roads is at an all-time high, which unfortunately means the number of accidents involving bicycles is also on the rise.
If you, or a member of your family, have been hit by a car when riding your bike or been injured in a bicycle accident, you could be entitled to compensation.
The team of specialist road traffic accident solicitors here at Lanyon Bowdler can talk you through the process, helping you to claim compensation for your injuries, as well as any pain and suffering caused by the accident.
It is a sad fact that the number of accidents involving bicycles is increasing, with the vast majority of incidents involving other vehicles. Drivers often don’t see cyclists because they are more difficult to spot in amongst traffic, and while drivers are used to checking for other cars, lorries and vans, they don’t always remember to watch for cyclists.
However, bicycle accidents can also be caused by poor road surfaces as well as the negligence of other road users. Cyclists can easily be thrown off their bike by a pothole or some other road defect, causing serious injury. If you are involved in an accident of this nature, you could be able to claim compensation from the council responsible.
