    Bike injury claims


    The rising cost of petrol burns a big hole into anyone’s bank balance. So it is hardly surprising that more of us are looking towards the humble bike as a valuable money saver. Considering the fact that a car uses more fuel for shorter distances, we could save a small fortune. Bicycle shops the length and breadth of Britain are busier than ever, as people see the advantage of pedal power. However, more cyclists on the road means more bike injury claims.

    What is an injury claim?

    This is a legal process. The person who has received the injury on a bike claims compensation from the person who caused the bike accident. This is often a driver of a motor vehicle such as a car or a van. Heavy goods vehicles (lorries) can also cause bike accidents.

    You will need the help of a personal injury law firm like us here at Accident Advice Helpline. We will help you to present evidence to show who was at fault for the accident. It is best to have a police report, witness contact details and photographs to help with this process.

    We will negotiate a sum of money as compensation for your injuries and for the money that you have lost because you are injured.

    Trying to reduce the number of bike injury claims in the UK

    The main cause of bike injury claims is when drivers fail to look properly. Whilst the government continues to encourage people to wear helmets as a form of protection, it is also important to look towards educating motorists on situations which could cause an accident.

    Speed limits are introduced on built-up roads and traffic law enforcement is sometimes tightened to catch those who display dangerous driving techniques. Where these methods are introduced on cycle-friendly, roads it is hoped that the number of bike injury claims will significantly decrease.

    Many people fasten a helmet, sit themselves in the saddle and take to the road feeling fully confident that their headwear will protect them whatever the outcome. However, studies have indicated that such equipment will only protect a head if an oncoming vehicle is travelling at just 13 mph!
