Accidents can happen when you’re out cycling
Leicestershire is very popular with tourists and also with cyclists, as it is wonderful cycling countryside. There is one problem with cycling, however, and that is there is hardly any protection for a cyclist. This means that it is very common for cyclists involved in accidents can suffer injuries which are very severe. If the accident was not your fault and you have been injured as a result, then they may be able to make a personal injury compensation claim using a personal injury lawyer in Loughborough at Accident Advice Helpline.
Accidents that can happen when cycling
Cycling has become a favourite pastime for people in the UK for people of all ages, as it is fun and healthy. Here is a list of some accidents that can happen when cycling:
- A car door opening onto to you as you pass parked cars;
- Crashing with a motor vehicle, whether it be a car, bus or lorry;
- Oil or mud on the road causing the rider to slip and fall from their bike;
- Hitting a pothole that throws you off your cycle; and
- Animals running out in front of you and causing you to lose control.
Any of these would cause you to injure yourself and be able to make a personal injury claim using a personal injury lawyer in Loughborough.

The injuries that can occur can be vastly different and also affect people in different ways, but some of them are:
- Head and brain injuries;
