Have you been injured in a cycling accident in Stroud? Cyclists are some of the most vulnerable road users, a fact reflected in the statistics regarding injuries sustained by cyclists in road traffic accidents.
Figures published by the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents reveal that there are over 19,000 cyclists killed or injured in road accidents a year in Britain, with over 3,000 of those being serious injuries or fatalities. Even when wearing a helmet and fluorescent safety clothing, cyclists can still be hit by other motorists and suffer devastating injuries. For many, this can mean not returning to work for months during the recovery period, while for others, an accident can mean not returning to work at all.

Statistics reveal that in accidents between a bicycle and another motorist, the most common cause is “failure to look properly”. Official figures show that 57 % of serious accidents occur because a motorist didn’t look, and consequently hit a cyclist. If you have been injured within the past three years in an accident caused by another driver, don’t just let them get away with it. Holding them responsible is the right thing to do, and ensures you are not left paying for the repercussions of the accident on your own.
With our no win, no fee* policy, there is nothing payable upfront to start a claim. In fact, all it takes to get your case underway with a personal injury solicitor is one quick phone call.
