Cycling is the third most popular pastime in the UK, partly because once you have bought you bike and kitted yourself out, it is a cheap hobby and partly because any age can ride a bike – from toddlers to pensioners, most people love a bike ride.
There are some though that are frightened to take to the roads because of the risk of being involved in an accident that was not their own fault. If this happened, they could be entitled to compensation just like the victim injured in an animal attack can claim compensation from the animals owner and a victim injured in an accident at work can make a Harlow accident at work claim.
How to avoid having to make personal injury claims, including a Harlow accident at work claim
Accidents are not usually caused on purpose and many of them could be avoided if people were not so negligent or reckless. For the cyclist, the biggest problem is potholes and bad road surfaces which local councils should have repaired. These can throw them from their bikes into all sorts of problems, such as into the path of other road traffic that cannot stop in time to avoid hitting them.
This is a case of councils being negligent, just like accidents at work are often because of the negligence of the employer in failing to abide by the health and safety legislation. In both cases the innocent victim would be entitled to claim compensation, the cyclist from the local council and the employee by making a Harlow accident at work claim.
All it needs is more care to be taken by whoever is responsible for the safety of others and then many of the 3 million accidents that happen in the UK every year could be avoided.
