Altrincham, Cheshire (PRWEB) April 10, 2013
Ethical claims company Cyclaim has announced that it is moving to larger premises to meet the demands of a growing business. The relocation has been identified as essential as the firm continues to work with increasing numbers of cyclists in need of assistance.
Cycling accidents show worrying trend
Cyclists taking to the roads are doing so in the face of some worrying accident statistics and increasingly hostile car drivers. Since 2006, there has been a 50 per cent increase in cycling injuries in London alone and Government plans to improve conditions and safety are under attack from car driver groups who disagree with a scheme favouring cyclists over drivers. These statistics are reported in the London Assembly Transport Committee's Gearing Up: an investigation into safer cycling in London.
Despite the £913 million earmarked under London Mayor Boris Johnson's Vision for Cycling aimed at improving cycling conditions in the capital, the Transport Committee's report insists this figure needs to be doubled to make a real difference to cyclists' safety.
The plans include cycle superhighways and road junction improvements in a bid to make London as cycle friendly as Madrid, Amsterdam and Paris. These are welcome plans given the ever increasing popularity of cycling as a mode of transport across the UK.
Move to improve service delivery
By moving to larger premises Cyclaim is intending to build capacity as it continues to provide advice and assistance to cyclists involved in accidents. Steady business growth over the last few years has allowed the company to refine the way in which it processes claims, with the objective of providing appropriate advice to cyclists. The relocation will add staffing capacity and improvements in infrastructure in support of these objectives.
When cyclists are unlucky enough to be involved in an accident, they can make a claim online using a specialist such as cyclaim.co.uk to start the process. This may also include arrangements for any medical rehabilitation required. Cyclaim's team includes a number of enthusiastic cyclists who can guide claimants through the administrative and legal process.
Cyclists across the country are looking on with interest as the plans to improve cycling safety in the Capital continue to evolve. Any moves to reduce injury and make cycling a safer and more enjoyable mode of transport or leisure activity are certain to be welcomed by the cycling community.
