Coventry is a delightful, thriving city that holds a sad episode in its history. Brutally bombed during the Second World War, there are a mixture of modern buildings from its rebuilding phase sitting alongside those monuments from the past that through sheer luck remained unscathed and untouched by the enemy bombs.
But like many other cities and towns across the UK, many people choose to move around the confines of the city limits on bicycle.
- A perfect way to commute – helping to improve and maintain fitness, cyclists also fit with the green agenda that is sweeping the nation, out of necessity as much as fashion. But whilst we may be saving the earth when we cycle, as our injury solicitor dealing with many bike accident claims in Coventry, and all over the rest of the UK.
- Poorly maintained roads – with prolonged periods of heavy rain and wind, many of our road surfaces are bearing the brunt of it. Potholes appear which can soon develop into large, almost crater-like holes in the road surface.
Many clients have claimed compensation for being thrown from their bikes as a result of large potholes. There have been cases of cyclists being flung so heavily from their bike that they have died from their resulting head trauma injuries. Others have sustained serious injuries in this type of accident, and we have helped them with their bike accident claims in Coventry.
Thrown from your bike? Our injury solicitor can help with bike accident claims in Coventry
As our injury solicitor will tell you, junctions are dangerous places for cyclists. As cars pull from or turn into junctions, they rarely look around for a cyclist. Even though you might be right in front of them, many drivers will not see you, often looking straight past you as they seek out whether another car is coming or not.
Consequently, they pull out and hit your bike, causing you to be flung from it. Again, many cyclists have been killed, with many severely hurt after being knocked from their bike.
