Injury claim in Salthouse

Contemplating making an injury claim in Salthouse?

As utility costs, fuel prices, rent and the general cost of living continues to rise, it is little wonder that the current trend for cycling to work is ever increasing. The opportunity to get fit whilst reducing ones commuter costs has never seemed a more attractive proposition. The introduction of cycle to work schemes has made it easier for people who have previously not owned a bicycle to purchase a set of wheels and take to the cycle paths as their preferred mode of commuter transport.

Whilst increased numbers of cyclists is undoubtedly good for the environment and our long-term health prospects, the increase in popularity of cycling to work has had a negative impact on the amount of cyclists injured in road traffic accidents. Sadly, cyclists are highly vulnerable road users due to their lack of protection and limited speed.

Stay safe!

  • Invest in the best quality cycling helmet that you can afford, but ensure that it fits properly. A well fitting cycling helmet could make the difference between a mild concussion and a serious head trauma or even death.
  • Wear cycling gloves. If you are unlucky enough to come off your bike, trying to break your fall with your hands is an instinctive reaction. Roads are commonly spattered with small bits of grit and very often shards of glass. Wearing adequate protection on your hands is not only going to keep them warm, but prevent nasty cuts and grazes too.
  • Stand out and be seen by wearing high-visibility clothing. If you can’t be seen, you are at risk of being run off the road. Wearing high-visibility clothes may just save your life. Adequate lights on your bicycle are also of the utmost importance. Always carry your lights when you go out, as you may be delayed and need to cycle home in the dark. Keeping some spare batteries in your knapsack is also prudent.

Common causes of cycling injuries

Cycling to work is a fantastic way to improve your fitness levels whilst reducing your monthly outgoings, but do be aware that you are at risk of injury from other road users. Common types of road traffic accidents involving cyclists include:

  • Cyclists turning right from a major and from a minor road;
  • Collisions head on;
  • Motorists crossing across cycle paths without indicating or checking for cyclists; and
  • Motorists emerging into the cycle path without looking for oncoming cyclists.

If you have been involved in a cycling accident within the last three years which was caused through no fault of your own, then you may be able to make an injury claim in Salthouse and claim compensation for the injuries which you sustained.
