Even away from the traffic, on one of the good network of cycle paths, there is still a risk of injury due to the thoughtless or negligent actions of other people. Despite taking reasonable precautions such as using reflective clothing, helmets and lights, accidents are still possible and if you are injured you may choose to pursue your compensation claim using Oxford ‘no win, no fee’ lawyers. Cycling accidents and injuries may include the following:
- Uneven surface: potholes along a road or cycling path can present a major danger to cyclists. Collisions into oncoming traffic are likely if cyclists swerve to avoid them and falls can occur if the cyclist rides over them losing balance. If potholes have been reported to the council before the accident then the authorities are liable for any injuries which commonly include arm, shoulder, spine and leg injuries.
- Vehicles – vehicle drivers can often fail to notice cyclists and accidents can occur in various situations leading to injuries such as spinal damage and internal bleeding. Cars overtaking cyclists too closely or quickly can sometimes clip them, knocking the victim to the ground. Drivers opening doors without checking first can knock cyclists into oncoming traffic.
