Although one of the most frequent and most document types of accidents are collisions between two drivers, the number of accidents that occur between a driver and cyclist on the road are also extremely high. In fact, trend analyses have suggested that, because there are increasingly more cyclists on the roads of the United Kingdom, the number of accidents involving cyclists and cars is also rising.
Cyclists injured in an accident with a vehicle
Statistically speaking, in most accidents between a cyclist and the driver of a vehicle, the responsibility for the accident lies with the driver. Most accidents of this nature are caused by drivers failing to look properly when driving, especially at intersections, and failing to notice a nearby cyclist. If you believe this may be the case for you, you should get in touch with an Accident Advice Helpline advisor today on one of the numbers below.
