Cycling is a great way to stay fit
Many of us here in the UK choose to cycle as a mode of transport. Not only is it great for the environment as you are not emitting any toxic fumes into the atmosphere, but it’s also an excellent way to keep fit. Nowadays, many cities and towns have designated cycle lanes which means that cyclists are much safer and in a different space to drivers.
However, there always comes a point when a cyclist must come onto the road and meet bigger traffic such as cars, motorbikes, trucks, cans and lorries and buses. It’s at this point that it can become very dangerous for cyclists as other motorists can sometimes struggle to see them.
Unfortunately, this means that cyclists can be badly injured if involved in a road traffic accident. Without the protection that a car or other vehicle offers, a cyclist is completely vulnerable to any impact whatsoever. For over 15 years, our solicitors in Manston have been fighting to help the innocent victims of cycle accidents claim for – and win – high pay outs of compensation.
You may want to claim compensation for your cycling accident
If you have unfortunately been involved in an accident while you have been on your bike and it was due to the negligence of another road user, you very well may be entitled to receive a pay out compensation. After being involved in an accident of any kind, it can be difficult to get back to normal. That is why a lump sum amount of compensation may benefit you and help you move on. You could go on holiday, decorate your house or even use the money to buy a new bike.
Our solicitors in Manston will gather all of the important details when helping you make a compensation claim. You will need to be able to show that the accident was the fault of someone else in the past three years and provide medical documentation as proof for your injuries. Any proof or evidence on top of this will be a bonus and can help you receive a higher pay out of money.
