Cycling accidents in the UK

Cycling is a fast growing method of transport, with rising fuel costs and increasing environmental concerns a key factor for hundreds of people each year. This does however mean the number of accidents involving cyclists is growing inherently.

Types of claims

There’s several different types of accidents which can lead to a successful claim, we’ve listed some of the most common below:

  • If you have been hit by a driver and have been injured it’s likely you have a claim.
  • If you have had an accident as a result of poorly maintained road you may be able to make a claim against the person or organisation who is responsible for maintaining the road.
  • Hit and run accidents where the driver has not stopped after the accident, these are normally the most serious type of claim.

You may also be eligible to claim for the purchase of a suitable replacement bike and helmet to replace those damaged beyond repair in the accident.

What to do if you are in a cycling accident

The first thing you should do is make sure you are in a safe place and check yourself over to see if you’ve suffered any serious injuries. If you’re unsure as to the extent of your injuries you should get checked over by a paramedic.

If you are not seriously injured after the accident, it is important to make sure you gain as many details as you can of the people involved in the accident. If possible, take the drivers name, vehicle registration number, model of the vehicle, address, phone number, insurance company and a policy number.

If there are any witnesses to the accident try to get their name, address and phone number. If you’re not in a fit condition and are taken straight to hospital the police will do this for you. A solicitor will be able to retrieve the records from the police and get in touch with the defendant and any witnesses.
