Certainly London cycle deaths are on the increase.
Motor & Cycling Deaths
Cyclists are likely to be killed on a bike than any other means of transport. 80% of cycle accidents claims are as a result of the fault of the motorist or lorry driver. The consequences of fatal road accident are devastating. Fatal Motorcycle accident claims occur frequently often resulting in death on UK roads. As a motorcycle rider you are 40+ times more likely to be killed than car drivers or passengers.
We do understand that compensation following a fatal cycle road accident is often a secondary thought, but making a claim helps maintain financial stability and relieve the financial worry and stress that comes with losing a bread-winning spouse or partner.
