If you live in Beccles or anywhere else in the UK, you may enjoy riding your bicycle. But what if an accident occurs and it was not your fault and as a result of this you end up suffering an injury. Then you should contact a solicitor in Beccles at Accident Advice Helpline to help you make an injury claim.
Accidents that can stop you riding your bicycle on the roads
The amount of traffic that is currently on our roads is the most common reason that stops people from riding their bicycle, because they are scared of being involved in a roast traffic accident. There is often a fear of being seriously inured by a motor vehicle and so many feel unsafe venturing onto the UK roads.
Although colliding with a motor vehicle is a very real hazard for cyclists, most cycle accidents occur because of a defect on the surface they are travelling on, a pothole or oil on the road not being unusual. There are more accidents for cyclists than accidents involving road vehicles.
Who a solicitor in Beccles at Accident Advice Helpline will make a claim against
It does not matter what the cause of the accident, someone, somewhere has been negligent. It could be a car driver, the authority responsible for maintaining the road, the manufacturer of the cycle if it is defective or it could even be the cyclists own fault.
As long as it is not their own fault, they may be entitled to make a personal injury claim using a solicitor in Beccles.
What you should do if your have an accident:
The first thing anyone involved in any type of accident should do is seek medical attention for their injuries. It is not unusual for an injury to appear quite minor at first but then develop into something more serious. The doctors will be aware of this and provide the right treatment before this happens.
