Cycling can be a very dangerous thing for you to do. It is not uncommon to have to make Ribble Valley car accident claims because a cycle accident often involves a car.
If this is the situation that you find yourself in, and you were not at fault, then you should contact the solicitors from Accident Advice Helpline and they will guide you through the process of making Ribble Valley car accident claims.
One of the most common reasons that a vehicle has an accident with is a cyclist is because they did not see the bike rider until it was too late. A bike accident can be very dangerous to the cyclist and the injuries tend to be more serious as you are unprotected and very vulnerable on a bike.
It is very important that all cyclists wear the correct protective clothing whilst they are riding their bike. A good quality helmet could potentially save your life one day, and is a legal requirement for all cycle riders.
Making Ribble Valley car accident claims and the injuries that could happen to a cyclist
The injuries sustained by cycle riders tend to be of a serious nature, if the live through the accident. Many victims do not, because most of the vehicles that hit them are much larger, and the cyclist stands no chance at all of coming out of the accident unscathed.
At the very least they are likely to have serious injuries, often to the brain or spine, and sometimes losing a limb. These injuries are life changing, not just for the innocent victims but for their families as well.
Not letting the cyclist take the blame
For some reason, it is often automatically assumed that the cyclist must have been the cause of the accident, and this is so unfair. But for many of them, unless they are claiming compensation, they will have no legal representation, as they are one of the few that do not have to be insured to be on our roads.
