Reducing the risk of requiring injury compensation solicitors in Kirkoswald
To reduce the risk of a cycling injury, there are some things that the rider can do to try to prevent an accident from happening. Things like:
- Do not ride next to someone else, this can make it difficult for a car to overtake and you might be knocked off your bike.
- Cycle riders do not have to take a test to take to the roads, but they should make sure they know the Highway Code.
- If you are passing parked cars make sure you leave at least a car door width between you and the cars to avoid a driver opening his door and hitting you.
- Maintain the cycle, particularly the lights and brakes.
- Wearing a good quality helmet can reduce any head injuries you may sustain.
- Knee pads and elbow pads can protect the joints.
- Wearing high visibility jackets, stripes on legs etc. will make you more visible to other road users.
As there are busier roads in the UK today, that means there is more risk of a cycling accident happening. Bike riders are extremely vulnerable on the roads today, as they are not a lot of cycling lanes on the roads and they have very little protection surrounding them, so if they do have an accident, the injuries can be quite serious, sometimes even fatal.
If the bike rider survives an accident that was not their fault, they may want to use the services of the solicitors in Kirkoswald at Accident Advice Helpline.
