Southern England is made up of several counties. One of these is called Hertfordshire, although many refer to it commonly as Herts. While not the biggest county in England, it does have a population of about 1,120,000 people. This would very likely make it easier to locate Hertfordshire accident claim solicitors if you ever had to.
While you may not think you would ever have the need to do this, the reality is you may do so if you were in an accident. You never get any inkling that an accident is about to happen, otherwise you may be able to take precautions to prevent getting involved. This isn’t always possible.
Staying safe as a cyclist
Cyclists are perhaps one of the most vulnerable road users around today. While it is essential to be alert, to wear reflective and highly-visible clothing and to put a cycle helmet on, there could still be the potential to be knocked off your bike if another road user wasn’t as careful as they should be.
Cyclists are prone to being quite badly injured when involved in a collision with a vehicle. Even if they are able to walk away from the accident, they may still be left with quite nasty injuries. Their bike may also be damaged beyond repair. As you can imagine, this could lead to costs for you in terms of lost income and replacing or repairing your bike. Plus, of course, you still have to recover from your injuries, no matter how serious or minor they might be.
Does this kind of situation mean a compensation claim might be made?
Yes – it would certainly be worth finding out if you could make a claim under circumstances like these. Getting the facts of what happened will be essential to making such a claim, and this is something the Accident Advice Helpline team may be able to help you with when you call us on 0800 689 0500.
While Hertfordshire accident claim solicitors could possibly help you, it’s not as easy as having the one number we’ve mentioned above to call, is it? The call will be free, and we’ll provide you with some essential no-obligation advice as well. You could soon know whether or not you are in a good position to make a claim with the help of one of our solicitors, with a no win, no fee agreement.
