Commuting to work by bike is a great idea – it cuts your carbon footprint, reduces emissions and keeps you fit and healthy. But in some cities – and even in rural areas – cycling can be hazardous if cycle paths are not in place, or if diversions exist which force cyclists to use main roads. Cycling commute accidents are becoming increasingly common as more of us than ever before choose to ride our bikes to work, and if you have been injured whilst cycling to work, you might be wondering if you are really to blame?
If you’re struck by another vehicle, they could be held liable for your accident and subsequent injuries, but there is another option. If you’ve been forced to cycle on the main road due to inaccessible or poorly-maintained cycle paths and you’ve been injured as a result, your local council could be at fault. It’s their duty to maintain public highways to a safe standard and if they have ignored their obligations, despite issues being reported to them, you could hold them liable for your injuries and make a claim for personal injury compensation – we can help you.
There’s little point in sitting around and wondering whether you’re eligible to claim personal injury compensation. Cycling commute accidents can leave you suffering from serious injuries, and you deserve to make a claim if somebody else is at fault.
