Cycling Accident Injury Claims

Cycling-Related Injury Claims

Making a claim following a cycling injury

Although millions of people cycle safely every day for fun, fitness and as a cost-effective means of transport, riding a bicycle can still be a risky activity.  According to the Department for Transport Statistics, in 2020 4,215 cyclists were seriously injured in car accidents and other road accidents in the United Kingdom, while 141 were killed.

Why Are Cyclists So Vulnerable On Our Roads?

Cyclists are without doubt the most vulnerable group of road users.  Factors which contribute to this include:

  • Cyclists can be difficult to see, especially by larger vehicles such as lorries at junctions
  • They cannot maneuver as quickly as other vehicles
  • A cyclist’s body (and head if a helmet is not worn) is exposed to terrible impact injuries, including broken or fractured bone injuries, along with neurological and psychological problems.
  • They are vulnerable to parked cars opening their doors suddenly or pulling out onto the road without checking their ‘blind spot’

For cyclists who have been injured on the road as a result of an accident that wasn’t their fault, help is at hand in the form of personal injury compensation. At RU1NJURED our panel Solicitors are committed to obtaining justice for cyclists and other road users.

As well as compensation for your physical injury, you may also be able to claim for damage to your bicycle and loss of use of the bike (particularly if you use it as a primary means of transport to and from work), along with any loss of earnings.
