Bicycle Injury Compensation Claims Information
Whilst local councils across the country are working to make cycling a more convenient and safer way to travel, bicycle accidents can still occur. Being a lighter mode of transport with the lack of protection a car provides for its passengers, cycling accidents usually result in injuries for the rider. If you’ve suffered any kind of cycling injury that wasn’t your fault, be it from poor road maintenance or a collision with another vehicle, you may be able to claim compensation. Even if you were wearing a cycling helmet and other safety clothing, you could still suffer serious injuries including head injuries, broken bones and more.
Our team at Tylers Solicitors can help you to claim bicycle injury compensation so that you can move on with your life. Whether it’s claiming against the local council due to sub-standard road maintenance or against a car, van, motorcycle or lorry driver who may have caused the accident, we can work to get the compensation you deserve. Whatever kind of cycling injuries you’ve suffered, we are here for you.

What are the Most Common Causes of Cycling Injuries in the UK?
With cyclists sharing the road with other users, such as motor vehicles, pedestrians and other cyclists, accidents can happen. In many cases, cycling injuries are the result of the cyclist being hit by another road user’s vehicle although it is also possible to suffer cycling injuries without a collision. If another road user’s driving has caused you to swerve, change direction or change speed, which in turn has resulted in you sustaining injuries, you could still be entitled to claim. Being cut up or pushed out of a lane or off the road by another vehicle can often result in an unavoidable accident. At worst, it can cause the cyclist to suffer injury from a collision or by being dismounted from the bicycle.
Cyclists are often at risk when approaching traffic lights and junctions by road users who fail to use their turn signals properly, resulting in vehicles driving across the path of the cyclist or hitting the rear of the bicycle. There’s also a risk from larger vehicles, such as HGVs, who’s drivers are sometimes unable to see cyclists alongside them or do not check their blind spots before manoeuvring.
Other things to look out for are other road users who may be speeding, driving without due care or attention, or under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Any of these can be a risk to a cyclist on the road, not to mention other road users.
if you’re a cyclist that’s been hit by a car, lorry or other vehicle, contact Tylers Solicitors today. As specialist personal injury solicitors, we can help you seek the compensation you deserve for your bicycle injuries.
In addition to impacts from other road users, cyclists can be injured due to poorly maintained road surfaces that has caused them to lose control or be thrown off the bicycle. Faulty traffic lights too can be a risk, potentially causing collisions with other road users.
