Cycling Accident Claims
Many people enjoy the benefits of cycling; travelling to work, exercise and the simple pleasure of taking in the outdoors to name but a few.
Cyclists are the most vulnerable on the road as they have very little protection if they are involved in a road traffic accident.
Around 4% of the UK’s population cycle to work every day to avoid fuel costs, transport costs and congestion. Moreover, many enjoy a leisurely bike ride on a weekend to relax or exercise.
Being involved in an accident whilst on your bike, can be extremely dangerous and can sometimes be fatal. If you have been involved in an accident seek medical help as soon as possible as the medical reports could also help with any compensation claim.
