Have you been injured by a cyclist?
Although many people enjoy cycling and view it as a sport as well as a form of transport, some people are starting to complain about cyclists in their area. Whilst many cyclists feel that it’s too dangerous to cycle on the road, pedestrians aren’t always happy about cyclists using the pavements as it could put them in danger.
Cyclists can face fines for cycling on pavements, but many still do it and it can sometimes result in accidents occurring. If a cyclist is going too fast, for example, someone could walk out and be involved in a collision with them. Similarly, if they take a corner too quickly they may be unable to see pedestrians, and they could easily ride into them.
When incidents like this occur, people can sustain very serious injuries. If you’ve been hurt in this way, you should consider taking legal action with accident solicitors in Ketton as you may be able to obtain compensation for your injuries.
When should you contact personal injury solicitors in Ketton?
Depending on how badly you’ve been hurt, you may need intensive medical treatment for weeks or months after the incident. If you’ve suffered broken bones, you could need an operation in order to reset the bone and you may then need to wear a cast for months whilst the bone heals.
During this time, you may not feel well enough to deal with a compensation claim. However, it’s important not to wait too long to make your claim, as most claimants only have three years in which to take legal action with accident solicitors in Ketton after an incident has occurred.
