    Claiming compensation for a fatal cycling accident

    Despite the fact that the UK has one of the best road safety records in the world, there has been a sharp rise in the number of cyclists killed on Britain’s roads, with fatalities in London alone rising from 10 in 2010 to 14 in 2012.

    Whilst it’s true that more people than ever before are cycling, there were 38 deaths per billion miles cycled in 2012 in the UK – compare that to 22 in the Netherlands. The Dutch are known for spending more on improving cycle safety than we do here in the UK, and it’s easy to see that improvements could be made to reduce the number of fatalities.

    If someone you love has been killed in a cycling accident, claiming compensation for a fatal cycling accident may be an option that is open to you. It’s important to choose a reputable personal injury lawyer who will work to get you the compensation you deserve, but remember there is usually a three year time limit in place in which to make a claim.

    Steps to claiming compensation

    If you are considering claiming compensation for a fatal cycling accident, contact a personal injury lawyer as soon as possible after the accident. Making a claim on behalf of a family member of loved one who has lost their life in an accident does not necessarily have to be any more complex than making a personal injury claim for yourself, and the lawyer you choose will discuss the claims process in full with you. Be aware that you may need to attend court in order to get the compensation you’re looking for, although in some cases personal injury claims can be dealt with in full over the phone.
