If you’ve been involved and injured in a road traffic accident as a cyclist, you might be in need of the services of a good firm of injury lawyers in Lambeth. If you are, we’d like to offer you our services here at Accident Advice Helpline. Although we are not specifically based in Lambeth, we offer a national service across the UK. Thanks to our state-of-the-art website and the free helpline service we provide, we are in effect everyone’s local injury claim solicitor (in the virtual sense), wherever it is they might happen to be in the UK.
The streets of London are no safe place for cyclists. In 2013 fourteen cyclists were killed, and in 2014 there were thirteen fatalities. In early June, only halfway through the year 2015, the number of fatalities has already reached eight, which statistically could indicate that this year could be the worst on recent record for cyclist fatalities in the city.
Of course, it’s not just fatal injuries that are the concern. All in all, last year according to the Royal Society for the Prevent of Accidents (RoSPA) website 19,000 cyclists were seriously injured in towns and cities all across the UK. Perhaps we should be taking a leaf out of the Netherlands’ book by making cycling safety more of a priority?
The user-friendly Accident Advice Helpline 30-second test
The range of injuries suffered by cyclists covers everything from fine scratches to broken bones, loss of limbs and of course fatalities. The amount of compensation therefore varies according to the nature and severity of the injury, and any other after-effects such as loss of earnings or livelihood.
To get an idea of the basic amount of compensation you could be awarded for the injury itself (i.e. not including other losses or costs), you should take the 30-second test here on the Accident Advice Helpline website. It costs you nothing and will only take a fraction of your time. You could discover that you are owed a significant amount of money.
