Cycles are becoming more and more popular in the UK, for various reasons, among them keeping fit and being a cheaper way to commute. Unfortunately, as the number of cycle riders increases, so does the number of cyclists injured on our roads, often in accidents they did not cause. If this has happened to you, you may be entitled to compensation and should discuss making a cycling claim in Sunderland with Accident Advice Helpline.
Research shows that very few cycling accidents are caused by cyclists, and that most of them occur because other road users are just not aware enough of the bikes on the roads. The reason given by most car drivers involved in an accident with a cycle is that they just did not see the rider until it was too late to stop.
Cycle riders are very vulnerable in an accident situation. They do not have the protection around them that a car provides, so when they are hit by a motor vehicle, their body can take the full force of the collision.
