Cycling Accidents

Cycling accidents & compensation claims

Thorneycroft Solicitors has a team of specialist cycling accident compensation claims solicitors within the Personal Injury team. Our solicitors provide specialist advice on all compensation cases on no win – no fee basis. For more details on our specialist website for cyclists click here.

Cycling accidents and injuries are increasing in the UK, these unfortunate accidents can vary in their cause and severity. A bike accident can leave you injured and your bicycle in serious need of repair. At Thorneycroft our cycling accident claims solicitors pride themselves on a sympathetic, professional, honest approach to all the clients who come to them with their cycling accident claims, and the main aim is to get them back on the road as quickly and as painlessly as possible.

Cycling accident statistics

At Thorneycroft our cycling claim solicitors have seen a sharp rise in the amount of cyclists involved in accidents and collisions in recent years. In 2010 it is estimated that around 17,200 of us were involved in a cycling accident, with 111 of those killed and over 2000 seriously injured.

It is no surprise that almost 75% of the cycling accidents that happen in the UK are in urban areas where roads are much busier, and therefore more dangerous. However probably the most shocking statistic is that 80% of cycling accidents last year happened in daylight hours, further proving how it can be a dangerous way to travel around.

Cycling is quickly increasing in popularity in the UK. It’s a relatively fast, environmentally friendly way to travel around, and it saves money on fuel at a time when petrol prices continue to rise. Throughout the UK, local governments and councils are working hard to improve the image of cycling and are encouraging people to take to riding as a way of keeping fit, reducing pollution and easing congestion.The negative side of the increase in cycling is that more of us are finding ourselves involved in cycling accidents. Our cycling claims solicitors keep abreast of all the latest developments within the cycling community and can provide specialised knowledge on all cycling safety requirements.

Do you qualify for cycling accident compensation?

Thousands of people are getting back the money they have lost through being involved in a cycling accident each year, and you could join them if you contact us today. If a cycling accident left you injured and it wasn’t your fault there is a very good chance that you will be able to make a cycling compensation claim.

Don’t worry if you are unsure if your case qualifies or not, our cycling claim solicitors are happy to offer you a free no-obligation assessment, and will provide you the very best legal advice for your individual case.
