Pedal Cyclist Road Accident

The number of casualties from pedal cyclist road accidents has been steadily increasing over the last few years. In 2009 casualties from road accidents involving pedal cyclists rose to over 17,000 for the first time in 5 years. Of those casualties, over 2700 cyclists were killed or seriously injured.

Many regular cyclists, and indeed hobby cyclists, take the precaution of wearing a helmet and fluorescent clothing yet this is little protection against a car when hit at speed. Being injured in an accident can affect you emotionally, physically and financially, which is why it is so important to seek expert legal advice.
