While some hazards and situations are uniquely detrimental to cyclists (like potholes), all road users will experience accidents that commonly occur in the same way. Sadly, car drivers are less likely to see or think about cyclists and motorcyclists, and therefore the chances of a road traffic accident occurring are higher.
In addition, as vulnerable road users, the injuries sustained by cyclists in these types of accidents can be severe. What might be little more than a dented bumper for a car, can cause serious and potentially life changing injuries for a cyclist. It is important to have a solicitor that understands that.
