Cyclists are the forgotten minority when it comes to road traffic accidents, but more often than not, they come off worse than motorists.
Statistics show that fewer than 10% of road accidents involve cyclists but, despite this, there are more than 15,000 cyclists killed or injured on the road each year.
A bike accident can leave you injured, leave your bike in serious need of repair, you could miss extended periods of work, you may need to have your bike repaired or completely replaced, and you may have to pay for medical treatment.

Cycle accident claims can be made for injuries sustained in a variety of accidents, such as;
• You're struck or knocked off by a vehicle
• You're hit by the door of a vehicle as you attempt to cycle past it
• You fall off your bike after hitting a defect in the road surface
• You collide with a pedestrian and it wasn't your fault
• You slip or collide with a substance or object that should not be in the road
If you have suffered one of these accidents, then it’s likely that you will want to make a claim against the party that was responsible for your accident.
