Each year, we here at Accident Advice Helpline help injury victims with personal injury claims in Paisley that are related to cycling accidents. With more HGVs and buses on the road than ever before, plus the increasing number of cyclists, the number of accidents that cause injuries is slowly on the rise. This particular category of accident and injury is something that Accident Advice Helpline is very familiar with, so if you’d like to take advantage of the experience and expertise that we’ve amassed over the past 15 years, you can do so by commissioning our services.
Each and every year here in the UK, approximately 19,000 cyclists are injured in road traffic accidents. Of this 19,000 approximately 3,000 are killed or seriously injured. These figures only represent accidents that have been reported to the police. Many accidents that cause injuries to cyclists go unreported, so the true figures are likely to be significantly higher.
Here are some cycling accident statistics:
- Approximately 75% of fatal and serious accidents take place in urban areas
- Around about half of the fatal accidents take place on the roads
- 75% of cycling accidents occur at or near road junctions
- 80% of cycling accidents happen during daylight hours
- 80% of cycling casualties are male
- Approximately 75% of cycling accident fatalities are due to major head injuries
Launching claims in Paisley for cycling accident injuries
If you are one of the cyclists who needs to raise claims in Paisley due to being injured in a cycling accident that wasn’t your fault, we here at Accident Advice Helpline can assist you in launching a personal injury claim for financial compensation. The provisos are that the incident occurred within the past three years and your injuries warranted medical attention. Just how much compensation you could be due can be estimated by taking our 30-second test.
Here on this website you’ll find our HOW MUCH personal injury compensation calculator. To get your estimate, simply provide answers to 4 questions using the drop-down boxes provided; leave us with a note of your name and contact telephone and that’s all there is to it. You’ll be given an estimate on screen and the whole exercise will only take approximately 30 seconds.
If you don’t have Internet access at home you can still take the 30-second test by phoning through on our free helpline service and chatting to one of our experienced advisers. They can enter the details for you and advise you what figures the calculator comes up with.
