Accident Whilst Cycling

It has been identified that cyclists are one of the most exposed groups of people to road traffic accidents. An accident whilst cycling can occur from incidents involving motorist collisions, highway defects and defective cycling equipment. Recent studies have indicated that a main cause of cycling accidents is the failure of motorists to see cyclists. Cyclists can also suffer accidents due to bad road conditions such as uneven surfaces and potholes.

If you have suffered an accident whilst cycling you can claim compensation so long as the accident was caused by someone else’s negligence. Sometimes negligence on the part of the cyclist can also lead to collisions and accidents. In circumstances where the cyclist is partly to blame for the accident the damages awarded will be reduced in proportion to their blame.

If you or your family member has suffered from a cycling injury, you are entitled to get compensation for your injury as well as the expenses you had to incur due to the injury. The injuries sustained in a cycling accident can vary from cuts and bruises to fractures and broken bones. Such injuries can have great impact on an injured cyclist, especially where the cyclist is unable to work or undertake routine tasks for a period of time.

Mrs B was crossing a pedestrian crossing pushing her grandson in a baby buggy when she was knocked to the ground by a car driven by the defendant. The accident caused a complex fracture to her right foot.   Liability was denied as both parties claimed the lights were in their favour. At trial Cooks were successful in proving Mrs B’s case and she was awarded £90,000.00.
