Cycling accidents and injuries are increasing in the UK and 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 and 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.
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 2014, government figures revealed that 21,287 of us were involved in a reported cycling accident, with 113 of those killed and 3,401 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 make cycling safe and improve cycle infrastructure in their regions. They are encouraging people to cycle to work or for recreational reasons, as a way of keeping fit, reducing pollution and easing congestion. With an increasing number of two and four wheeled vehicles on our roads each year, the risks are obvious. Our cycling claims solicitors keep abreast of all the latest developments within the cycling community and can provide specialist knowledge on all cycling safety requirements.
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.
