Have you been hurt as a cyclist?
You would assume that the people who seek advice after a car accident in Gravesham so that they can make a claim are car drivers. However, this leaves out other kinds of road users who may need to make a claim, such as bus drivers, pedestrians, and cyclists.
Cyclists are some of the most at risk road users that exist. It only takes a small knock for a cyclist to be quite badly hurt, because they don’t have the protection that a car driver does. They are also at risk because of the attitude of car drivers.
You have as much right to use the road as the car drivers do
It seems that many car drivers believe, or act as though, cyclists do not have as much rights as they do when they are using the road. This could not be further from the truth.
This lack of respect can cause accidents in a number of ways. Whether it is car drivers just not checking for the presence of cyclists, or not giving them enough space when they pass them, these drivers put cyclists at risk every day. This is something that should always be challenged.
Find some advice after a car accident in Gravesham
You should never accept the costs of an accident that was not your fault. You should also never accept an accident that was caused by a simple lack of respect for cyclists.
Making a claim will take on both these problems, getting you the compensation you are owed, while also holding accountable those at fault.
