There are some lovely roads to enjoy riding you bicycle on throughout the UK. Cycling has become the third most popular pastime within the UK and there is only one concern – that is you are very vulnerable on the roads because of the lack of protection a cycle rider has. If you have an accident while riding your cycle, your injuries can be very serious.
If you find yourself in this position and someone else caused the accident, you may be entitled to make a personal injury claim using a solicitor in Ashkirk at Accident Advice Helpline.
Cycle claims with a solicitor in Ashkirk
The main hazard for a cyclist to sustain serious injuries is motor vehicles. The other hazards can be potholes and bad road surfaces – in fact, most cycle accidents are solo events where no other vehicle is involved.
If you are involved in an accident and fall off your cycle because of another vehicle or a pothole that has not been repaired, you may be able to make a personal injury claim, using a solicitor in Ashkirk at Accident Advice Helpline.
The different injuries
Hopefully, if you are in an accident when out on your cycle, your injuries will be no more than a few cuts and bruises, but they can be far more serious, for example:
- Head and brain injuries
- Road rash
- Back and spine injuries
- Facial injuries
- Soft tissue injuries
- Internal injuries
- Broken bones
Some of these injuries can be life changing, not just for the victim but for those close to them as well. If the accident that caused them was the fault of someone else,you may want to make a personal injury compensation claim using a solicitor in Ashkirk at Accident Advice Helpline.
