    Lancaster car accident claims

    It is not just cars that become involved in road traffic accidents. You could be a cyclist, just riding along, when suddenly out of nowhere you get knocked off your bike, through no fault of your own.

    A cyclist could possibly suffer serious injuries because bike riders are more vulnerable on the roads. They do not have a protective bubble of a car around them to shield them from the worst of an accident.

    If you are the innocent victim of a road traffic accident, then you could potentially be allowed to claim for compensation by making Lancaster car accident claims, using Accident Advice Helpline to help you.

    The common cause of cyclist road accidents

    Other than a vehicle hitting a cyclist, another common cause for a bike rider to suffer an accident is bad road surfaces or potholes in the road.

    You may think that this would not cause a serious injury, but if you hit a pothole while on a busy road, then it could knock you off your bike into oncoming traffic. This would then be a very serious accident indeed, and could result in fatal injuries.

    It would be the local council who you would make your Lancaster car accident claims against if your accident was caused because of a pothole in the road. This is because it is their responsibility to ensure that all of the their roads are in good condition.

    Reducing the risk of serious injuries if you are a cyclist

    A bike rider can do some things to reduce the risk of a serious injury, although there is not a lot they can do to prevent an accident from happening when someone else causes it.

    Things like:

    • Wear a good quality helmet
    • Wear as much protective clothing as you can
    • Wear bright coloured clothes to make you more visible

    None of these things will actually stop an accident happening, but they could help reduce the severity of any injuries sustained.
