The most common reason people give for not riding a bicycle is the fear of being injured in road traffic accidents. And Grangemouth roads present many hazards for bicycle riders.
But there are literally many thousands of riders who enjoy the pursuit, as it has no age barriers at all. Some use bicycles for commuting, some just for pleasure and to others it is a sport they participate in. If you’ve been injured in a bike accident in Grangemouth, read this guide.
Injuries from a bike accident in Grangemouth
Most bicycle accidents are solo events where a pothole or something similar has caused the accident. The ones involving other road users tend to result in more serious injuries, but this is not always the case. From any bicycle accident, you could experience:
- Broken bones
- Road rash
- Internal injuries
- Head and brain injuries
- Back and spine injuries
- Facial injuries
- Damage to joints
- Loss of limbs
- Fatal injuries.
If the cyclist survives the accident, the seriousness of the injuries can be life-changing for them and their families, and whoever was responsible for the devastation should be made to pay.
What to do on the scene after Grangemouth road traffic accidents
Where another vehicle is involved, often the police will be called to the scene and they will want to speak to everyone involved. From the scene and the information they are given, they will compile an accident report. This report can be vital evidence when you are making a personal injury claim, as it often points the finger of blame.
Dealing with insurance companies
The other road user should have motor insurance, which will settle the cyclists personal injury claim. Having to deal with them puts innocent victims off making a claim. But they should not concern themselves with this, since Accident Advice Helpline can do it for them.
