While the 40 to 45-mile ride is said to be a pleasant experience, cycling from London to Windsor, like any other cycling route, present riders with the risk of personal injuries.
Cyclists can prevent a great deal of accidental injuries by ensuring their bike is in good working order before embarking on the ride and wearing suitable protective gear, including a helmet. Not exceeding your own capabilities; resting when you get tired and taking in plenty of fluid along the way will also help to get to Windsor healthy and in good shape.
To prevent getting injured by accidents on the road, cyclists should also:
- Stay on cycling paths as and when provided
- Follow general road safety rules and regulations
- Remain vigilant and keep an eye on the actions of other road users
By cycling sensibly and bearing in mind that other road users may not be aware of you at all times, you can do much to avoid falling victim to a road traffic accident.
When mishaps do happen
There are times when preventing cycling accidents is for some reason or another not possible. A car driver may, for example, drive without the necessary care and attention to prevent vehicle collisions. Should this happen and you are injured in a traffic accident caused by another road user, you could be entitled to make a claim for cycling injury compensation.
Making your claim
You can establish your eligibility to claim and get your claim started by contacting Accident Advice Helpline. There are two possible ways of contacting our long-established, highly recommended law firm. The first option is to visit our law-firm’s website, where you will be asked to fill in the compensation calculator. Option number two is to call our Freephone number and speak to an advisor. Any information you provide on the website or while talking to an advisor will be kept confidential and you will not be under any obligation to pursue a claim at any stage during or after making this initial contact.
Why you should claim
There are, however, good reasons for claiming personal injury compensation. Claiming for compensation against a careless or perhaps even reckless driver could nudge the responsible driver into clearer thinking and more careful driving, potentially helping to prevent future, perhaps even more serious, motoring accidents. In addition, the high success rate enjoyed by Accident Advice Helpline claimants means you are likely to secure sufficient compensation to assist you with the financial burden put upon you by the consequences of your cycling injury.
