    When lightning strikes

    Steeple Ashton is a village in Wiltshire. The first element of the village’s name may represent the steeple of the church, which is claimed to have been struck by lightning in the 17th century and the steeple rebuilt, only to be struck by lightning a second time.

    As this is such a popular area for cycling, lets hope none of the cyclists get struck by lightning, as there would be no one to make a personal injury claim against for their injuries. If, however, they were injured in an accident that was the fault of someone else, they would be able to make a personal injury claim with the help of injury lawyers in Steeple Ashton.

    It’s more than lightning that stops people frmo riding bikes

    The most common reason people give for not riding a bicycle is how frightening they find the amount of traffic on our roads. Many people have a fear of having an accident with a motor vehicle and being seriously injured. They just do not feel safe on British roads.

    Although colliding with a motor vehicle is a very real hazard for cyclists, most cycling accidents occur because of a defect on the surface they are travelling on, a pothole or oil on the road being not unusual. There are more solo accidents for cyclists than accidents involving road vehicles.

    Who will injury lawyers in Steeple Ashton make a claim against?

    No matter what the cause of the accident, someone somewhere has been negligent. It could be a car driver, the authority responsible for maintaining the road, the manufacturer of the bicycle if it is defective, or even the cyclist. As long as it is not their own fault, they may be entitled to make a personal injury claim using injury lawyers in Steeple Ashton.

    What you should do if you are involved in an accident

    If your injuries are not so severe that you are taken away in an ambulance, you should seek medical attention as soon as you can. Quite often what appear to be minor injuries turn out to be worse than first thought, so a doctor’s advice is important.
