    An injury lawyer in Liskeard won’t tell you to get on your bike

    Liskeard is an ancient stannary and market town in southeast Cornwall. The town is at the head of the Looe Valley in the ancient hundred of West Wivelshire and has a population of 9,417. Looe has major roads around it, so it is inevitable that road traffic accidents will happen, and just like anywhere else in the UK, some of those involve cyclists.

    A cycling accident

    If you are injured in an accident while out riding your bicycle, and the accident was caused through the fault or negligence of someone else, then you may well be entitled to make a personal injury compensation claim using an injury lawyer in Liskeard.

    Other road users have more protection than the cyclist, so in an accident the cyclist’s injuries tend to be more severe. There are a few things they can do to try to reduce the risk of an accidents and serious injuries, such as:

    • Wearing a well fitting, good quality safety helmet;
    • Wearing kneepads and elbow pads;
    • Wearing good quality, sturdy footwear;
    • Avoiding riding next to other cyclists;
    • When passing parked cars, making sure that you leave enough room for a door to be opened without knocking you off your bicycle.

    Hopefully, if the cyclist follows these tips, they will be less likely to be injured in an accident and may be able to avoid the need to use an injury lawyer in Liskeard.

    Injuries sustained by cyclists can be serious
