With increased traffic on our roads and generally less investment in cycling safety collisions between cyclists and other vehicles are becoming more widespread.
However many cyclists suffer an injury even where there has been no actual collision.
One of the most common scenarios is where a vehicle travels too close to the cyclist or cuts across the path of a cyclist forcing the cyclist to swerve.
- Colliding with parked vehicles
- Falling from the bike
- Colliding with pedestrians
These are just some of the consequences faced by a cyclist when trying to avoid possible collisions.
I didn't get the vehicle registration - can I still claim?
