Unfortunately, being injured or involved in a cycling accident isn’t uncommon, especially when taking into account that thousands of people across the UK use a cycle for travelling purposes every single day.
Cycling injuries can occur any time; such as when you’re riding to work, for leisure, as exercise and/or as part of a journey. With the number of increased cyclists spending greater time on roads which are also shared by other vehicles such as cars and buses; sadly, accidents do often take place.
Accidents and injuries whilst cycling can be caused by many different situations. Some of the most common include potholes, road defects, coaches and buses, negligence of other road users and equipment failure, such as a faulty helmet or bike.
In the year 2010 alone, over 2 million potholes were identified in the UK through the Department of Transport’s Pothole Review.
Many of these holes were not a result of bad weather alone, but were also due to street works and inadequate procedures for inspection. This puts liability on local councils through the Highway Act 1980 who have a duty to adopt a reasonable system of inspection.
Because of this legislation, our focused cycling accident claim lawyers hold local councils responsible for defects on roads which have caused cyclists to suffer injuries and bring you the monetary compensation that you deserve.
Although the Highways Act is limited to public land, the Occupiers Liability Act can assist in matters relating to privately owned land in a similar way as similar duties would apply to private owners of land.
