Boris Johnson Climbs Down Over Cycling Accident Figures:

London Mayor Boris Johnson recently had to climb down when he was found to be quoting totally inaccurate figures about the causes of cycling accidents in the capital. Mr Johnson, famous for being a regular cyclist himself, had stated that two thirds of bad cycling accidents in the capital were caused by the cyclists themselves. This has since been completely discredited. In fact the true figure is 6%.

Cycling for leisure and as a form of commuting had seen an increase in recent years but with the tremendous success of the GB cycling team at the London Olympics cycling has boomed recently. However as the true figures for London are that at least 56% of bike accidents were caused by vehicle drivers it is likely that the number of bike accident claims will also increase.

Cyclists are particularly vulnerable to injury as they have little protection in the event of an accident, so their injuries can be significant. Not only are car, van and lorry drivers often to blame for cycle accidents, sometimes local authorise can also be held responsible as they are under an obligation to maintain road surfaces. Every year in UK there are a number bike accidents caused by potholes in the road. Claims-solicitors acted for a lady who suffered a fractured shoulder and other injuries after being thrown from her bike after hitting a pothole.

There is no doubt that sometimes cyclists themselves are guilty of going through red lights and other legal infringements, we have all seen such incidents in our cities. However in cases of injury caused by other road users then cyclists should make a bike accident claim to compensate them for their injuries and loss of wages etc. A good claims solicitor will also be able to help by negotiating interim payments and funding for physiotherapy and rehabilitation for those making bike accident claims.
