Claiming compensation for a cycle accident in Aberdeen.

Cycle Accidents

Aberdeen, like many other major Scottish cities, is keen to encourage cycling. If more people use their bikes in and around the city, it will help improve problems such as congestion and pollution.

While Aberdeen is not as popular with cyclists as many other major Scottish cities, (a Cycling Scotland report published in 2016 found that 4.2% of citizens in the Edinburgh use a bike as their main mode of transport, compared to less than 0.5% people in Aberdeen), the Aberdeen City Council is hoping to change that. The Council has put several measures in place to help improve the city's infrastructure so it better accommodates cyclists.

They have introduced education and awareness campaigns, encouraged employers to offer their staff incentives to cycle to work, and started providing cycling training sessions to both adults and children who are unsure about travelling on two wheels. The city also hosted a Tour Series event in May 2017, further highlighting the joy of cycling to all age groups.

With more and more people being encouraged to use their bikes instead of cars, cyclist safety is a serious issue because, similar to all big cities, cycling accidents in Aberdeen are a significant problem.

More cyclists mean more cycling accidents in Aberdeen

Unfortunately, the rise in popularity of cycling has meant a rise in the number of cycling accidents, and, sadly, these incidents more often than not involve cars and lorries which means the injuries to cyclists can be catastrophic.

If you've sustained an injury in an accident that was, at least in part, due to the actions or another party, then you should not be left to cope with the effects of your injury without receiving compensation.
