While Covid-19 brought a dramatic increase in bike sales and a huge increase in the number of people cycling, unfortunately accidents do happen and cycling on roads can leave cyclists vulnerable and at risk to injury.
There are of course many causes of cycling accidents including road traffic collisions, defective equipment, car door collisions and potholes or road defects. However, such accidents can knock cyclists of their bicycle, leading to serious injuries or even fatalities.
If you have been injured in a cycling accident that wasn’t your fault, you may be entitled to receive compensation for pain, suffering and loss of amenity. You may also be entitled to claim for loss of earnings, private medical treatment and other expenses that may have incurred as a result of the accident.
At RP Crawford & Co Solicitors, we act for cyclists involved in accidents and have successfully secured compensation for them. Our expert personal injury team will listen to what has happened and advise you on the options available concerning claiming compensation.
