What are the most common causes of cycling accidents?
Cycling accidents can be caused in lots of different ways. When you’re on two wheels, it often feels like the world is against you, and it’s a struggle against other road users, cars, motorcycles, or poor road surfacing. MG Legal’s expert cycling injury solicitors have dealt with hundreds of injured cyclists, and always worked hard to ensure they receive the maximum compensation for what are often lifechanging injuries.

Cycling accident personal injury claims are common.
If you have been injured whilst cycling, then you’re not alone. Our expert cycling injury solicitors have successfully pursued other road users, including motor vehicles, lorries, vans and heavy goods vehicles, and sought personal injury compensation through their policy of motor vehicle insurance, and local councils, in relation to potholes in the road, and uneven road surfaces.
In 2018, 99 pedal cyclists were killed, 4,106 seriously injured, including Back and spine injuries, and Head Injuries and 13,345 slightly injured, meaning no broken bones but still suffered whiplash and soft tissue injuries, neck, shoulder and arm injuries and burns, scars and cuts. Many cyclist casualties are not reported to the police, even when the cyclist is inured badly enough to be taken to hospital.
The above fugues do not include cycling accidents on towpaths, verges, canal paths, or another cycling accidents occurring away from the public highways and roads.
