Do you need to make Stoke-on-Trent personal injury claims after a biking accident?
If you regularly use a bike to get around, you may be aware of some of the dangers that can present themselves on the road. Although using a bike is a great mode of transport, it can sometimes be dangerous. Whilst most people assume that riding a bike in city streets is most likely to result in an accident due to the volume of traffic, this isn’t always true.
If you live in a more rural area, you could still suffer an accident whilst riding a bike and you may need to make Stoke-on-Trent personal injury claims as a result. In the country, for example, many roads are narrower than in towns and cities and they may not have specific bike paths, or even pavements. In addition to this, many roads are unlit which means that other drivers and road users may not see you and could, therefore, be unable to avoid hitting or colliding with you.
If you are involved in a road traffic accident whilst cycling, it’s likely that you will be able to make Stoke-on-Trent personal injury claims but you will need to be able to show that you weren’t at fault. Providing you can prove that another driver or road user caused the incident, you should be able to make Stoke-on-Trent personal injury claims against them.
Although some incidents are simply unavoidable, there are steps you can take to try and avoid incidents and accidents occurring. For example, you may want to alter your route so that you’re travelling on safer roads and you may want to purchase appropriate safety equipment, such as a safety helmet and high visibility cycling clothes.
However, if you have taken all the relevant precautions but have still been involved in a road traffic accident, you may need to make Stoke-on-Trent personal injury claims.
