St Pierre du Bois is a parish in Guernsey and the name is Guernesiais. The literal English translation is St Peter in the Wood. The area is mainly countryside with a small village in the centre. It is perfect countryside for a bike ride, but should you have an accident whilst out on your cycle and the accident was not your fault, you may be able to make an injury claim in St Pierre du Bois.
Would the injuries have to be serious for an injury claim in St Pierre du Bois?
No, not necessarily. Of course, serious injuries do happen with cycle accidents, even sometimes fatalities. The cyclist is so exposed that this is inevitable. But even what are apparently minor injuries, can mean having to lose time from work, or having to pay for physiotherapy. All extra costs, or losses, should be considered to see if they could be part of your injury claim in St Pierre du Bois.
Serious injuries, such as brain damage, can be life changing, not just for the victim but for those around them as well. If the condition of the victim is such, that they are no longer capable of dealing with these matters themselves, a family member should make the injury claim. There may be care costs involved, amongst other things and the victim should be in a financial position to have whatever they need.
What are the usual causes of a cycle accident?
Most cycle accidents are solo events. More cyclists come off their bikes because of potholes and bad roads, than because of accidents involving other road users. Quite often when another road user is to blame, it is because they have just not seen the cyclist till it is too late.
