Although cycling is a common activity, it can be fairly dangerous. Whilst some cyclists prefer to ride in local parks and cycle tracks, many people rely on bikes as a form of transport. Whilst this is efficient and environmentally friendly, it does mean that they are forced to contend with other traffic on the roads.
When road traffic accidents occur, cyclists often suffer serious injuries as a result. Due to the limited protection a bike offers, cyclists must wear additional safety garments to try and prevent fatal injuries occurring.
If you’ve been injured whilst riding a bike and you weren’t at fault, you may want to contact an accident solicitor in Swanbourne. Providing you can prove that someone else caused the accident to occur, you should be able to obtain compensation.
