Cycle lanes are growing in number across the UK as the number of cyclists on our streets rises. Unfortunately, accidents do still happen in cycle lanes, despite clear road markings and signage. If you or someone you care for has been injured in a cycle lane, speak to our specialist solicitors immediately for advice on how to make a compensation claim.
Vehicles parking or road works in cycle lanes, causing cyclists to move onto the main section of the road is a common way for cycle accidents to happen, as well as vehicles entering the cycle lane to pick up or drop-off passengers. One of the many other causes of accidents in cycle lanes is through other inexperienced cyclists braking suddenly or failing to hand signal; this is more prevalent in areas of high-volume cycle traffic such as London or Cambridge.
In accidents involving a bike and another vehicle, the most common key contributory factor is the driver or cyclist ‘failed to look properly’. If you have been involved in an accident that was not your fault, get in touch with us. We can visit you at your home or hospital if your mobility is impaired. You can also read our information page on what to do after a cycling accident which provides useful information on what to do immediately following an accident.
