If you are injured in a cycling accident you might decide to use a law firm in Scarborough to try and obtain financial compensation for your injury. If the accident wasn’t your fault, and you sustained a nasty injury, you are both legally and morally entitled to be compensated.
Don’t pass up the opportunity to claim compensation
Although we have done a lot to increase people’s awareness of their right to injury compensation, only 7 out of 10 who can claim, actually do. All businesses that operate within the public domain have to take out public liability insurance by law. The funds are there if and when needed; so don’t pass up your opportunity to what is rightfully yours.
The rate of RTAs involving cyclists is increasing
The awful truth of the matter is that cycling on the roads anywhere here in the UK is becoming more dangerous. Other types of RTAs (Road Traffic Accidents) including cars and motorbikes are declining. But not those that involve a cyclist, and because cyclists are so exposed and vulnerable, their injuries are usually severe, many proving fatal.
Across the UK as a whole, there has been a significant increase in the amount of KSIs (Killings and Serious Injuries). In the last two years. In 2010 there were 2,770 KSIs. In 2012, this figure has risen to 3,340.
Drivers of large vehicles must become more aware of cyclists
Part of the problem is that more people are taking to bicycles, whether to help them to stay fit, (somewhat ironically), or to save money on transport costs to from work. More cyclists on the road, and the problems that large vehicle drivers (eg. buses and HGVs), seem to have in spotting them are a recipe for disaster. More needs to be done to increase awareness and protect our cyclists. Cyclist for their part, should refrain from cycling up on the blind side of these large vehicles for their own safety.
