Do you need to contact Elgin accident claim solicitors after cycling in the rush hour?
In a bid to improve their fitness, many people are now choosing to cycle to and from work, rather than relying on their own car or on public transport. Although government initiatives are encouraging people to use bikes, rather than vehicles, there are calls for roads to be made safer for cyclists.
Unfortunately, cyclists can experience more injuries on roads which are busy or full of traffic. This means that cycling during rush hour can be particularly dangerous. Even cyclists who wear the appropriate safety equipment can experience very serious injuries if a collision occurs so it’s essential that drivers look out for cyclists at all times.
If a driver fails to check their wing mirrors, they may be unaware that a cyclist is close to them. If they were to change lines or to turn into another road, they could easily collide with the cyclist and they could potentially cause them serious life-threatening injuries.
If you have been hurt whilst riding your bike and you weren’t at fault, it may be worthwhile contacting Elgin accident claim solicitors. Providing you can show that the incident wasn’t your fault and that it was caused by someone or something else, there is a good chance that Elgin accident claim solicitors will be able to help you to make a successful compensation claim.
