    Injury Claim in Newark and Sherwood


    Injury Claim in Newark and Sherwood

    Cyclists are among the most vulnerable of road users because of the lack of protection a cycle provides. Even just falling from their cycle can cause them injuries, and should a motor vehicle or pothole be the cause of the accident, their injuries can be very serious. If the accident they were injured in was caused by someone else, they are legally entitled to compensation, and the easiest way to get this is to ask Accident Advice Helpline for help with a personal injury claim in Newark and Sherwood. 

    The cycling accidents that result in a personal injury claim in Newark and Sherwood

    Most cycling accidents are solo events, caused by potholes and bad road surfaces. A cyclist hitting a pothole can be just the start of a terrible accident, if for instance it throws them into the path of traffic coming the other way. Cars would be slamming brakes and swerving to avoid the cyclist and each other, it could end with three or four cars all in an accident that was not their fault.

    This chaos could be caused by one pothole that the local council should have repaired, and the cyclist and drivers would all be able to make a personal injury claim in Newark and Sherwood against them, because of their negligence in not looking after the roads.

    The second most common cause of cycling accidents is other road users, and many of them that have accepted the blame for an accident, say they just did not see the cyclist until it was too late.

    This is down to drivers being more aware of what other traffic is on the road, and taking particular car at junctions and islands, where most accidents with two wheeled vehicles occur.

    The cyclist can help by making sure they wear something bright to make them as visible as possible, but at the end of the day, if a motorist does not look properly, it will not matter what the cyclist is wearing.
