Cookham Dean is a quaint little village located amidst the beautiful Hertfordshire countryside.

You may already know this and be searching for a firm of injury lawyers in Cookham Dean to help you navigate the complex legal process involved with claiming.
Cycling injuries in Cookham Dean
Cycling is a popular leisure activity for many people and it’s easy to see why; it’s cheap, easily accessible, good for the environment and a great way to keep fit. Plus cycling can be a useful means of transportation, whether this is getting around the town centre in Cookham Dean or commuting to and from your place of work in one of the nearby towns such as Reading, Slough or High Wycombe.
Despite its many advantages, cycling can also be a dangerous activity even when all the necessary precautions are taken. According to the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents, last year over 22,000 cyclists were injured in the UK including around 4,000 people who were either seriously injured or killed.
Cycling accidents can result in all sorts of injuries, from cuts and bruises to broken bones and from head injuries to paralysis.
If you have been hurt in an accident as a cyclist and that accident was brought about through no fault of your own, then you could make a personal injury claim and receive compensation for your ordeal.
