If you were out enjoying a bicycle ride on a nice sunny Sunday afternoon, and as you cruised round a bend on a country lane, there was a huge pothole you did not see until it was too late to avoid it, you could find yourself with some very nasty injuries.
Potholes and bad road surfaces are the most common cause of cycle accidents, although from what you see in the media you would think that more cyclists are injured by other road users. But this is not the case, most cycle accidents are solo events between just the cyclist and the road.
Cyclists are very vulnerable in an accident situation because of the lack of protection for their bodies, and the injuries they suffer tend to be of a serious nature.
Roads should be maintained by the local authority responsible for them, and if this happens to you, you might want to consider claiming compensation from them. For instance, in your accident happened in Worcestershire, you might make an accident claim in Redditch, or maybe Bromsgrove, depending in what part of the county you were injured.
