It is estimated that more than 2 million people across the UK now cycle at least once a week. Sadly, one of the more negative statistics is the amount of serious injuries caused to cyclists. In 2019 there were 16,873 accidents reported to the police involving cyclists who were injured which, represents a 4% decrease from 2018. A total of 4,190 involved serious or fatal injuries. It is estimated that the true figure when taking into account those accidents which have not been reported is two to three time higher.
The most common vehicle involved in accidents with cyclists is a car or taxi although heavy goods vehicles present a particular danger for cyclists. It is estimated that ¼ of accidents resulting in a serious injury to a cyclist involved an HGV, bus or coach passing too close to the rider.
Human error has been found to be the main contributory factor involving cyclist accidents and driver error is the most frequently reported reason for the accident occurring involving 90% of all reported accidents.
Unfortunately, cycling accidents frequently involve serious injuries. Hospital statistics reveal that over 50% of cycling injuries involving a motor vehicle included head injuries ranging from minor concussion to skull fractures and brain injury.
