Cycling claims in Stroud
Cyclists are amongst some of the most vulnerable road users and they are highly likely to suffer serious trauma if they are involved in a collision with motorists such as cars and heavy goods vehicles.
Unlike other road users, a cyclist’s primary means of protection is not provided by the bike that they are travelling on. Indeed, it is the protective clothing that a cyclist wears that provides the only means of protection between them and the road surface or the impact caused by other road users.
Cyclists should always wear the correct protective gear to reduce the effects of being injured if they should be involved in an accident. Typically, protective clothing consists of:
- A securely fastened helmet that fits correctly
- Protective gloves for grip and to protect the hands
- Sturdy footwear with a ridged sole
- Clothing which is waterproof and windproof
- Reflective tabards or high visibility stripes on clothing
