Have you been knocked off your bike whilst cycling?
Although cycling has many health benefits, it can be somewhat dangerous, particularly if you cycle in busy areas. The risk of cycling on the road has grown so great that many keen cyclists now restrict their cycling to off-road cycle paths, rather than using it as a mode of transport.
Unfortunately, drivers don’t always look out for cyclists as they should and this can lead to unnecessary accidents occurring. However, if you are injured or hurt whilst cycling and it wasn’t your fault, you may find that you’re able to make a claim for compensation.
Could you obtain road traffic accident compensation in Tonbridge and Malling?
In order to make a successful claim, you will need to be able to prove that you weren’t at fault for the incident. If you were cycling in a busy area this should be easy to do as there will probably have been witnesses who saw the incident unfold.
If they are willing to provide a statement, this could help to support your claim and it could increase your chances of obtaining compensation for your injuries.
In addition to this, you will need to be able to show that you obtained medical help if you want to make a claim for compensation. As most cyclists suffer some kind of injury after an accident, it’s likely that you will have sought medical treatment of some kind.
Even if the incident occurred whilst traffic was slow moving, any collision is likely to cause you to fall off your bike and his could leave you with any number of injuries, from fractures and broken bones to concussion and cuts and lacerations.
