Require injury lawyers Strathpeffer for your cycling injury claim?
Strathpeffer is a village and spa town in Ross and Cromarty in the Scottish Highlands. It lies in a relatively sheltered glen five miles west of Dingwall and boasts varying degrees of elevation from 200-400 feet above sea level. With scenic opportunities you would be hard pushed to find a better location for cycling. Indeed Strathpeffer is the venue for one of the worlds most extreme mountain bike races.
The Strathpuffer is a 24 hour race held in January every year and attracts over 400 competitors. However it is entirely possible to enjoy the scenery on a road bike and leave the mountain biking to the extremists. Sadly, all forms of cycling carry a risk and road cyclists are often ‘clipped’ by other road users which can result in injuries to varying degrees and a hefty kit replacement bill.
If you have had the misfortune to have been injured whilst cycling by another road user then in most cases you are entitled to seek compensation from the perpetrator.
Common cycling injuries are:
- Broken limbs. Broken bones such as elbows, shoulders and collar bones.
- Chest injuries and broken or cracked ribs.
- Cuts and bruises.
- Head injuries.
- Dental damage.
