Many people love cycle riding. Age does not come into it, young and old alike enjoy riding their cycles. But if one of them is involved in an accident, they are very vulnerable to serious injuries as they have so little protection. If you have been in a cycling accident that was not your fault, you may be entitled to make a West Dunbartonshire accident claim.
The common causes of cycling accidents
There are two main causes of cycling accidents. One is other road users not being aware enough of two wheeled riders and the other is potholes and bad road surfaces. There is not much a cyclist can do if they are going round a traffic island or maybe through a junction, and a vehicle does not see them. The first the cyclist will know is when they take the full force of the collision. The same can be said of a pothole. A cyclist is not going to purposely ride into one, but when they are thrown from their cycle, them they probably have a good idea why.
Serious injuries are often the result of a cycling accident, and are the reason so many people are entitled to make a West Dunbartonshire accident claim, or an accident claim anywhere else in the UK.
