    Claiming compensation for a cyclist hit and run

    Cycling is becoming more and more popular in Britain. Many people are beginning to see the environmental benefits as well as the benefits to their finances when compared with driving or paying for public transport. A lot of cyclists can be seen on the roads during rush hour as many people now opt to travel to work this way. As there are often fees to park the car in certain areas or many people may have trouble finding a parking space, cycling is becoming a more attractive option. It also has many health benefits and those who don’t find the time to exercise can use their bike to travel as a way of staying active. Many local authorities are aiming to encourage cycling to make the roads safer around the UK. However, cyclists are still in the minority which means there is still a way to go before more people are choosing to use their bike as a means of travel.

    Many drivers understand that cyclists will be on the road and show them respect and courtesy, allowing them to pass safely. However, there are still many drivers who are aggravated by cyclists and do not show them the same amount of courtesy as others. If there is an accident involving one of these drivers and they see that they have been at fault, they may not stick around to face the consequences. If you have been a victim of a cyclist hit and run, you can claim compensation for your injuries.

    Injuries during a cycling accident

    Cyclists are among the most vulnerable road users and are at risk of serious injuries in the event of an accident with another vehicle. Being knocked off your bike can cause broken bones, head injuries and trauma if caused by a car or larger vehicle. In the worst case scenario, there could be a fatality. You may not have been the one at fault if the other driver did not look before pulling out or was speeding. If you have been involved in a cyclist hit and run and you want to claim compensation for your injuries, Accident Advice Helpline can assist you.
