Bike accidents vary considerably in severity, however, the injuries sustained can have a sufficiently longterm impact on the health of a previously fit and active cyclist. Every day, hundreds of people commute to and from the office in a bid to get fit, not considering the possibility they may encounter a reckless or inconsiderate driver. Recklessness is one of the biggest contributors to cycling accidents, believed to be the root cause of over 40% of incidents in the UK each year.
If you have suffered as a consequence of an accident that wasn’t your fault, we recommend contacting a cycling accident claims specialist to find out whether you could claim compensation.

Cycling Accident Claims Statistics
Aside from being one of the UK’s most popular summer pastimes, cycling is reputed to be the ultimate body workout. More of us than ever before are foregoing our stuffy cars for the freedom of cycling, but, being green, free and healthy comes at a price. According to recent statistics, the number of cycling accident claims has increased by a third in the past five years, with over 60% believed to have been caused by motor vehicle drivers. In 2010, the number of bicycle accident fatalities also rose by 7%. While these statistics do not illustrate the number of accidents caused by third party drivers, the rise in cycle accident claims suggests that driver error is a significant factor.
