    Personal injury road traffic accident claims

    Cycling on London’s Roads

    Many people wouldn’t even dream of driving a car in London, let alone using two wheels. In 2012, 571 people died or were seriously injured cycling in the capital — an enormous rise of 22% from 2010. In fact, there’s been an upward trend every year since 2009.

    Vying for space with taxis, buses, lorries and cars has led to an increase in personal injury road traffic accident claims by cyclists. The hazards encountered on a daily commute to the city centre are very real.

    Road rage is ever present and campaigns are constantly being promoted to raise awareness of cyclists to lorry drivers, bus drivers and cabbies. Cycling newbies can attend training courses, equipping them with the skills to handle London’s roads.

    Cycling Accidents

    However, cycling can easily cause a split second life-changing injury. The repercussions can be felt mentally, physically and financially. Loss of earnings due to time off work is a serious issue in one of the world’s most expensive cities. It’s even more galling if the accident wasn’t your fault.

    Claiming for Compensation

    If this sounds like you, then help is at hand. You may be entitled to compensation if you answer ‘yes’ to these questions:

    Open Claim Calculator

    • Were you injured within the last three years?
    • Was someone else at fault?
    • Have you sought medical treatment for your injury?
    • Is this your first attempt at claiming?
    • Do you have the contact details of the other person involved?

    Your claim will be strengthened if there were any witnesses who are willing to say that the accident wasn’t your fault. They wouldn’t necessarily have to stand up in court – a written statement is normally fine.

    How to Claim

    At Accident Advice Helpline, we’ve helped thousands of people to claim for injuries received in road traffic accidents. Cyclists are just as entitled to claim as drivers, passengers and pedestrians. You don’t even have to have been in a serious collision; potholes are just as much as a hazard as an eager bus driver, and you are just as innocent. In the case of potholes, we’d be claiming against those responsible for the road upkeep.

    The first step to receiving your compensation is to complete our 30-second test online or call our freephone number, 0800 180 4 123. Our friendly advisors are always available to take your call and you’re under no obligation to proceed. Just call for an initial chat. Our legal partners work on a no win no fee basis — if we lose, you don’t pay us a penny.
