Why the solicitors in Hendon thinks you should make a claim
Cycling is fast becoming a favourite pastime throughout the UK, and in fact it is the third most popular hobby. This is because people of all ages can partake in it, it is also good exercise and good fun. Many people also use this way to commute, for their journeys to and from work.
Being a cyclist though, means that you are vulnerable on the roads. You do not have a lot of protection and usually if you are in an accident, your injuries can be quite serious and even fatal. This is why you may need the solicitors in Hendon to make an injury compensation claim for you.
Causes of cycling accidents
Some cycling accidents are solo events, they are not always collisions with another road user. There could be mud or oil on the road or you could be on a road with potholes or bad road surfaces that throw you off your cycle.
What to do at the scene of an accident
If you are not badly injured and your accident is with another vehicle then you should try to:
- Take the details of any witnesses to the accident
- Call the police
- Ensure the police complete an accident report which includes your point of view
- Take the details of the driver of any other vehicle involved
- If possible take photos on your mobile phone
