Drivers who are exiting residential driveways must make sure the road and pavement are clear before emerging. Unfortunately too many driveways are often concealed by either parked cars or hedges. This can make it difficult for drivers to have a clear view of cyclists.
Too many drivers simply do not take their time to check the road is clear and sometimes rely on a single quick glance before pulling out or reversing into the road.
As a cyclist you are constantly aware of the risk of traffic pulling across your path and when riding along residential roads this risk is much greater. Nevertheless there is very little cyclists can do when a car pulls across their path.
If you have been hit by a car emerging from a driveway then you should contact Graham Coffey Cyclist Injury Specialists today for a free consultation.
Claims for Cyclists hit by Reversing Cars in Greater Manchester & North West England
You can still claim even where you have managed to avoid a collision.
Avoiding the car can still result in injury. Falling from the bike, colliding with other vehicles, being forced to the kerb or simply suffering an injury while trying to maintain control can still result in an injury which is worthy of compensation.
Graham Coffey & Co Cyclist Injury Solicitors have repeatedly succeeded in securing compensation on behalf of injured cyclists.
