Causes of Cycling Accidents

With many still inspired by the 2012 London Olympics as well as our recent Tour de France success stories and the upcoming Glasgow Commonwealth Games, there has been an increase in the number of people getting on their bike and taking up cycling. Sadly there has also been a rise in the number of cycling accidents.

Approximately 19,000 cyclists are injured or killed each year on UK roads. The most common accidents are caused by:

  • Driver turning into the path of the cyclist
  • Motorists failing to look properly, particularly at junctions
  • Cyclists falling into a driver’s blind spot.

Cyclists are often unsure if they can make a claim for a bike accident with many presuming you have to be in a car to be the victim of a road traffic accident. However if you have been injured in an accident at the hands of another road user you could be eligible to make a claim.
