Webinar Wednesday – Defending cycling claims

Wednesday 24 March 2021

Even before the pandemic, we have seen a spike in cycling claims against highway authorities. With the implementation of lockdown measures, sales of bicycles have increased by 60% since March 2020. The boom in popularity for cycling (and e-scooters) is likely to see that trend increase and so ideas and tips for defending such claims is timely. 

Simon discusses the recent High Court decision in Nash v Hertfordshire County Council [2020] and the tactics and strategies for increasing the prospects of a successful defence to such claims.   

Simon Johnson (simon.johnson@dwf.law) is Partner at DWF Law LLP. Simon specialises in defending local authorities against most conceivable public and employers’ liability claims.
