Most bicycle or cycle accidents happen due to a lack of observation often at junctions with cars, buses and other vehicles pulling out in front of a cyclist having failed to see them.
There are however, many dangers to cyclists, not only from vehicle drivers but also from defects in the road as a result of which you may be entitled to bring a claim against the local authority for their failure to maintain the road surface.
Your accident may also have been caused as a result of a faulty bicycle or cycling equipment ie. faulty helmet or protective clothing.
