Are you a keen cyclist? If you are, you are probably more than aware of the problems cycling on our roads here in Britain, which often require the help of an accident lawyer in Blackwater. The traffic seems faster than ever and the volume of traffic on the road is far higher than ever before.
Staying safe, getting to your destination on time and in one piece when you cycle on the roads seems to get harder and harder. With more and more cyclists reporting near misses every day on the roads, you need to be aware of what you need to do if you are knocked from your bike.
It is not a nice thought to think about needing the expert service of an accident lawyer in Blackwater in the event that you are injured. Neither is it pleasant to think about what you need to do if you are involved in an accident but here are a few hints and tips…
- If you have been knocked from your bike and you are able to, get the details of the vehicle or vehicles involved. This can be registration plate numbers if the vehicle does not stop or, if they do stop, you do need their name and address. In all cases, if you were knocked from your bike, then you need to contact the police. As many an accident lawyer in Blackwater and their team will tell you, Police forces up and down the UK will tell you the vast majority of accidents happen at junctions where the driver has ‘not looked properly’.
- The next step, even if you do not feel you are badly injured, is to seek medical advice. This could be a trip to your local A&E Department or you may feel more comfortable getting checked over by your family doctor. Either way, on a bike you have very little bodily protection and you may find aches and pains coming to light days later.
