Cycling accident claims are becoming increasingly frequent due to the number of people starting cycling. The number of cyclists in the UK has more than doubled over the past ten years. But as more and more people are switching from four wheels to two, so too are the number of accidents and injuries involving the nation's cyclists. In most cases, whenever there is an accident on the road involving a bike and a car, it is invariably the cyclist that comes off second best.
Injuries can range from bumps and bruises, to broken bones, head injuries and in the worst cases, death. But one factor remains the same, if you are hurt in an accident while riding your bike, and it wasn't your fault, chances are you're entitled to make a claim... and Legal Request is here to help you get what is rightfully yours.
