People usually have a very clear idea of what happens if they have a bump in their car – getting insurance details, taking names of any witnesses etc. However if the accident involves a bicycle, people are often confused as to what they should and shouldn’t do. This guide sets out to explain how the law affects those involved in accidents with cyclists (whether you’re riding or walking).
Q. If you’ve been involved in an accident with a cyclist, or you are a cyclist in an accident, can you make a claim for compensation?
A. Well the short answer is that yes you can (if it was the other person’s fault), in exactly the same way as car drivers bring claims against each other (although bear in mind if as a pedestrian you collide with another pedestrian you are going to struggle).
The same laws and rules apply to all these collision cases and it’s important to realise this.
Despite what people might think or say, the law doesn’t favour pedestrians or cyclists over motorists. It never has, and it never will be outwardly biased in that way.
In Spring 2009 there was a move to have the blame automatically shifted in favour of the ‘more exposed’ party in an accident.
