If you enjoy riding your bike, then you are not alone. Cycling is one of the UK’s favourite pastimes. It does not matter about your age, you could be a toddler or an elderly person, cycling can be great fun and is a good way to help you keep fit.
If one day you are out riding and you have an unexpected accident that was through no fault of your own and you suffer injuries as a result, then you should contact the solicitors in Kegworth to make an injury compensation claim.
As long as the accident has happened within the last 3 years, and it was someone elses fault, and your injuries required medical treatment, then you may be able to make the injury compensation claim.
How did it the accident happen – tell the solicitors in Kegworth
There are lots of different ways that a bike accident can happen, here are just a few examples:
- Colliding with motor vehicle
- A driver opening their car door and it hitting a cyclist
- More than one cyclist riding next to one another, if one goes down for some reason, all those around him could follow
- A pothole in the road or a bad road surface
- Oil or mud on the road
If any one of these happen to you, or any other accident for that matter, and you are injured as a result, then you might be able to use the solicitors in Kegworth to make a personal injury claim.

There are different types of injuries that could happen to you because of a biking accident, such as:
- Spinal injuries
