Car Changing Lane

In this typical accident claim example, there are usually two lanes and the motorist overtakes the vehicle in the nearside lane and then switches back into the nearside lane.

In so doing, the motorist fails to see the cyclist and causes an accident. This is usually a collision or the cyclist has to take emergency avoidance action often leading to them falling off their bike and landing heavily to the floor, thus causing injury either way.
