What is a cycling accident?
Cycling accidents occur in various circumstances, but the majority are when a cyclist is knocked off their bicycle by a vehicle, hits a pothole in a road, or where a piece of equipment such as a helmet or bicycle frame fail.
Cycling accidents range from the relatively straightforward to the most complex. Whatever the case, Fosters Solicitors have the experience to provide you with the best support and advice.

Have you read the updated Highway Code?
In 2022, ten sections of The Highway Code were updated, affecting all types of road user and aiming to improve the safety of people walking, cycling and riding horses.
Most significantly a hierarchy of road users was introduced to protect those most vulnerable, and in relation to cyclists, some important updates and guidance were added regarding passing distances, positioning and the use of shared spaces.
