    Why an expert injury lawyer in Prudhoe thinks you should make a claim

    One of the most popular pastimes in the UK is cycling. It has become a huge pastime, taken up by people of all ages, for pleasure and as a form of transport.

    Cyclists are very vulnerable when on the roads, they do not have much protection if involved in an accident and it’s not unusual for the cyclist’s injuries to be serious, or even fatal. Hence the need for compensation claims, using an expert injury lawyer in Prudhoe.

    The causes of cycling accidents

    Most cycle accidents are solo events rather than collisions with other vehicles. Potholes, bad road surfaces, animals, oil or mud on the road and any number of other things can cause these.
