Increasing numbers of Londoners are cycling to and from work. Not only is cycling significantly cheaper than commuting by tube, train, bus, or car, it also keeps riders healthy. However, these commuting cyclists can face challenges, most pertinently in the form of limited cycling infrastructure, potholes and, most frequently, other road users.

The RoSPA figures
Figures from the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) show that in 2011, 107 cyclists in Britain sustained fatal injuries while on their bikes. Furthermore, 3,085 sustained serious injury, while 16,023 sustained minor injuries.
Of course, although there is no protection better than being safe and road aware – for example, following the Highway Code, and wearing high visibility clothing and protective equipment – these things are in themselves no guarantee against injuries caused by the negligent actions of other road users.
For example, RoSPA statistics indicate that around three-quarters of cycling accident deaths occur on or within close proximity to junctions – most typically incidents where the other road user has failed to adequately observe road traffic. Another common cause of cycling injuries is opening car doors.
Whatever the case, if you believe that another's actions have led to you sustaining injury as a cyclist, talk to Seth Lovis & Co cycling accident claim solicitors today.
