Cycle Accident Claims
If you’ve been injured in a bicycle accident that wasn’t your fault, we can help you make a compensation claim.
More cycle accidents occur during the spring and summer months (May to September) than the autumn and winter months (October to April). However, the casualty rate in terms of miles travelled is higher over the autumn and winter period.
Per billion vehicle miles, 1,011 pedal cyclists are killed or seriously injured, in comparison to 26 car drivers. Around 75% of fatal or serious cyclist accidents occur in urban areas Around half of cyclist fatalities occur on rural roads 75% happen at, or near, a road junction 80% occur in daylight 80% of cyclist casualties are male 10% of cyclists killed or injured are children. Around three quarters of cyclists killed have major head injuries.
At Treadstone Law we took on a case for ‘Mr B’ of Manchester, who was a keen cyclist and knocked off his bike by a vehicle in Manchester.
As a result of the collision, for which he was entirely blameless, our client suffered multiple injuries to neck and back, including bruising and cuts to face and knees.
This was an extremely traumatic experience for the client and we were keen to take on his case. We managed to get the defendant to admit liability quickly and as a result were able to have ‘Mr B’ compensated for his unfortunate trauma to the tune of £6,790.
