Recent statistics have shown that cycling is becoming more and more popular across the UK. A recent British Social Attitudes survey found that as much as 3% of the public cycle every day and 7% cycle as often as once a month.
However, as cycling has become an increasingly popular leisure activity and way to travel to work and school, there has also been an upturn in the number of road accidents involving cyclists.
Cycling Accidents in Cardiff
The roads can be a very dangerous place for cyclists. The roads are getting busier and busier all the time and many drivers fail to give cyclists the attention and care they need to cycle safely. Many drivers will drive too close to cyclists or will forget to look out for them at junctions.
Cycling accidents can also be caused by poor road conditions. Large potholes or areas of damage to the road can cause cyclists to fall from their bikes and suffer very serious injuries.
In the most fortunate cases a cyclist will escape from an accident with minor cuts and bruises. However, many cycling accident result in extremely serious injuries cause lifelong disabilities to the cyclist involved.
Making a Claim
To make a personal injury claim you must have suffered an injury that was someone else’s fault. There are many cases where the person injured was also partially to blame and this is known as contributory negligence. If you contributed to your accident, then this would affect the amount of compensation you could claim but it would not prevent you from making a claim.

How Much Can You Claim?
This is one of the most common questions we are asked. The level of compensation that you are entitled to will depend on the circumstances and details of the accident and injury. In general, the more severe an injury is, the more compensation you will be entitled to. The compensation available will reflect the pain you suffered, the affect the injury had upon your working life and the length of time taken to recover from the injury.
However, the most important step in claiming compensation for your accident is choosing the right personal injury lawyer for you.
