Expert injury lawyers in Pevensey
Pevensey is a village in the Wealden district of East Sussex. With the effect of long-shore drift this large bay was gradually cut off from the sea by shingle, so that today’s marshes are all that remain behind the shingle beach.
Sussex has some wonderful cycling areas and is very popular with cyclists, just like many other areas nationwide. The only problem with cycling is the lack of protection a rider has if they happen to be involved in an accident. Often, their injuries are severe and if the accident that causes them was not their fault, they should consider making a personal injury compensation claim, using injury lawyers in Pevensey.
Expert injury lawyers in Pevensey and the accidents that can happen while out enjoying a cycle ride
Riding your bike can be fun and it is one of the most popular pastimes in the UK for all age groups. This does mean that all age groups sustain injuries in accidents, some of the scenarios being:
- Oil or mud on the road causing the rider to slip and fall from their bike.
- Hitting a pothole that throws you off your cycle.

- Crashing with a motor vehicle, whether it be a car, bus or lorry.
- Animals running out in front of you and causing you to lose control.
Any of these would cause you to injure yourself and be able to make a personal injury claim using expert injury lawyers in Pevensey.
