    You may become injured in an accident that was not your fault whilst you are out riding your bicycle around Kingston upon Thames. If this has happened to you, then you will need to use a personal injury lawyer in Kingston upon Thames in order to make a compensation claim.

    Why a personal injury lawyer in Kingston upon Thames thinks you should make a claim

    Cycling has become a popular pastime throughout the UK, taken up by people young and old as a form of sport, for transport and for just pleasure. However, cyclists are very vulnerable when on the roads — they do not have much protection if involved in an accident and it’s not unusual for a cyclist’s injuries to be serious or even fatal, hence the need for compensation claims using a personal injury lawyer in Kingston upon Thames.

    What are the causes of cycling accidents?

    Most cycling accidents are solo events rather than collisions with other vehicles. Potholes, bad road surfaces, animals, oil or mud on the road, and other things can cause these.

    What you should do at an accident scene

    If the accident does involve another vehicle, and you are not too badly injured to deal with things yourself, you should:

    • Take the details of the driver of any other vehicle involved;
    • Take the details of any witnesses to the accident;
    • Call the police;
    • Ensure the police complete an accident report which includes your point of view; and
    • If you have your mobile phone with you, take photos of the accident scene.

    How to make your personal injury claim

    After you are over the initial shock of the accident, you should consider making a compensation claim and using a personal injury lawyer in Kingston upon Thames at Accident Advice Helpline, if the accident was not your fault. This will be the simplest and least stress-free way in which to make your personal injury claim.
