Cycling is a fun and environmentally friendly outdoor pastime. However, it is certainly not hazard free. Cyclists are amongst the most vulnerable of road users, and often sustain severe injuries when they are involved in road traffic accidents.
What should I do if I am involved in a road traffic accident?
Following your involvement in a road traffic accident, you should seek immediate medical attention, especially if you have sustained a blow to the head.
If you have sustained minor injuries, it is highly advisable for you to exchange details with the individual who caused the accident before you leave the accident scene. You should also acquire the contact details of any independent witnesses to your accident as your accident lawyer in Roydon may need to call upon these individuals to provide honest accounts of the events leading up to your accident.
If you happen to have a smart phone with a camera, you should take pictures of the scene of the accident. If you cannot do this at the time of your accident, you should return to the scene as soon as you can to photograph any signs of damage in the area where you accident occurred. These images will help your accident lawyer in Roydon to establish liability.
