    Bristol claims

    Cycling can be a very fun and inexpensive hobby for you to enjoy. You can do it with friends and family and it will be good exersise for you all, but unfortunately there are disadvantages with it as well. Cyclists have very title protection from their bikes, and if they are involved in an accident, their injuries tend to be serious. If a cycling accident has happened to you, through no fault of your own, then you could be entitled to make Bristol claims for compensation, from whoever was responsible.

    How cycling accidents happen, and why victims make Bristol claims for compensation

    Many cycling accidents happen because of potholes and bad road surfaces that can throw a rider from their bike. If they are lucky they might land on a grass verge, and be more shocked that hurt.  But if they are not so lucky they could be thrown into the path of other traffic that cannot stop before hitting them, or maybe slide along the road tearing flesh and skin from their body.

    Then there are the accidents where another vehicle is involved, and these usually happen because the drivers do not see the cyclist until it is too late. This is the most common reason given by drivers who admit fault in cycling accidents.

    However your accident happened, if you were not at fault, and you sustained injuries that needed medical attention, you should consider Bristol claims for compensation from the guilty party.

    How to reduce the risks of serious injury

    Because of the risks of serious injury, cyclists need to do whatever they can to protect themselves. Wearing a good quality, well fitting helmet is vital, as a large proportion of cycling deaths are from head and brain injuries. Reflective clothing or stripes will help make them more visible to other road users, and good sturdy footwear will help protect their feet.

    As well as wearing as much protective gear as they can, they should also make sure that their bicycle is well maintained, particularly the lights and brakes.

    Cyclists are one of the few road users allowed on our roads without taking a test, but that does not mean they should not know the rules of the road. Learning the Highway Code could one day save their life.
