Road accident in Oxford

0

If you love riding your bicycle, then you are not alone, as it is fast becoming a favourite pastime in the UK. It does not matter how old you are; people from all over the country are taking to their bikes.

Riding a bicycle is the only form of transport allowed on the roads without taking a test first. So this can cause a lot of problems, mainly people having a road accident in Oxford. This does not mean it is always the fault of the cycle riders though, because it is not.  Other road users cause more accidents with cyclists than the cyclists themselves.

Every rider should make sure they have a good knowledge of the Highway Code though as this may help. It might just prevent them from being injured in a road accident  in Oxford, and having to use the services of an injury lawyer.

The precautions an injury lawyer says cyclists should take to stop a road accident in Oxford from happening

Here are a list of  precautions cyclists can take to try and reduce the risk of serious injury from a road accident in Oxford, for example:

  • Wearing sturdy footwear to protect their feet
  • Checking their lights and brakes work before setting out
  • Wearing a well fitting good quality helmet
  • Wearing kneepads and elbow pads to protect their joints
  • Wearing bright clothing to make them more visible to other road users
  • Not riding next to other cyclists, if one goes down for some reason, they can take others with them
  • Not riding to close to parked cars – a door may be opened onto them

Hopefully these precautions may save them having to use an injury lawyer because of injuries sustained in a road accident in Oxford that was not their fault.

The injuries

The list of injuries is endless, just a few of them are:

  • Back injuries
  • Neck injuries
  • Spinal injuries
  • Cuts and bruises
  • Anxiety and stress
  • Broken bones
  • Road rash
  • Death
  • Internal injuries
  • Joint Damage

Any of these injuries caused in a bicycle accident that was not your fault would enable you to make a personal injury compensation claim.
