Could you claim after a cycling accident?
When people make a claim after a cycling accident, it’s often because they’ve been in a collision with another vehicle. Unfortunately, many cyclists suffer injuries when they’re involved in a road traffic accident and this can lead them to make a compensation claim.
However, not all collisions occur between vehicles and cyclists. If two cyclists collide, for example, it may still be possible for you to make a personal injury claim. Similarly, if a pedestrian steps into the road and causes a collision, you could take legal action against them.
A key element of your claim must be that you weren’t responsible for the incident. Providing someone else caused the accident, you should be able to proceed with a claim, regardless of whether you collided with a vehicle, another cyclist or a pedestrian.

The first step in making a claim is often getting legal advice. If you’ve been injured whilst in the local area, for example, you may set about looking for injury lawyers in Milnthorpe.
