Anyone can jump on a bicycle and take to our roads, there are no lessons needed, no test to take and no legal requirement for insurance. The sensible ones will have done a cycling proficiency course and learnt the Highway Code, but not everyone has that much sense. Even so, most cycling accidents are caused either by bad roads or other road users, who just do not see them until it is too late.
If this has happened to you, and you have sustained injuries in the accident, you could be entitled to compensation and the way to get this is to make a personal injury claim in Braintree, or where your accident happened to be.
When you use the services of Accident Advice Helpline for your claim, it really does not matter where in the UK your accident happened. We have a nationwide network of lawyers and solicitors, all of whom are experts in making personal injury claims.
How to try and prevent the need for a personal injury claim in Braintree
Cyclists need to take care on our roads as too many of them are seriously injured or killed every year in road traffic accidents. They can try to reduce the risk of this happening to them by making sure their bike is in good working order, a brake failure at the wrong moment could be the difference between life and death.
They should make sure they wear a good safety helmet and as much protective clothing as they can, then at least if they are in an accident, the seriousness of their injuries could be reduced.
But really the only way to guarantee that you will never be injured in a cycling accident that was not your own fault is never to ride a bicycle. This could also negate the reason for making a personal injury claim in Braintree, but would take a lot of pleasure away from a lot of people, if they could no longer ride their bicycles.
Making a personal injury claim in Braintree
Accidents cause many extra, unexpected expenses, and Accident Advice Helpline will make sure these are all repaid to you if your claim is successful. There can be so many things that you suddenly have to pay for, such as:
- Medical expenses
- Travel costs
- Care costs
- Home adaption or moving
As a drop in the ocean of the expenses there can be, these examples would add up to a lot of money over just a few weeks, and why should you have to pay for them when you are in this situation because of someone else?
Making a claim with us will be as stress-free, simple and efficient as it can be as any one of the many thousands of claimants we have helped over the last 14 years will testify.
