Whether you are an experienced cyclist or a beginner, it is important to pace yourself when you are cycling to avoid getting into accidents.
It is too easy to get overtired or travel too quickly on a bike and end up burning yourself out with tiredness or moving too quickly to react to potential hazards on the road. If you can learn to pace yourself so that you are only pushing so hard and are not trying to take it too fast all the time then you can avoid accidents much more easily.
Of course, this won’t prevent every accident from occurring and there is still a chance that you could get hurt whilst cycling. If you’ve been injured and you don’t believe you were at fault, you may want to contact injury lawyers in Pentewan in order to find out more about making a compensation claim.
Claiming with injury lawyers in Pentewan
As most cycling accidents occur on the roads, it’s inevitable that other road users are involved. Some of the most serious accidents occur when a car or van collides with a cyclist. Even wearing specialised safety equipment may not prevent you from suffering serious injury and it’s important to seek immediate medical help after this type of incident.
If another road user is responsible for the incident, injury lawyers in Pentewan could help you to take action against them. In order to successfully obtain compensation, you’ll need to show that you weren’t at fault, that you were injured within the last 3 years’ and that you obtained medical treatment for your injuries.
If you think you could be eligible to make a claim, why not get in touch with us today?
What is your claim worth?
The amount of compensation you’ll receive will probably depend on the type of injuries you’ve experienced. The more serious your injuries, the more compensation you could obtain.
However, if you’ve suffered financially as a result of the incident, it’s important to let your injury lawyers in Pentewan know. If you’ve had to pay for additional expenses or have lost income as a result of the accident, you could be able to claim these costs back.
