According to a ROSPA report, cycling was one of the few areas where there was an increase in accidents, serious injuries and deaths in 2012. This is partly because cyclists are so vulnerable because of the lack of protection from their bikes and what they wear. Although it may not contribute to the amount of accidents that happen, cyclists are the only road users who do not have to take a test to ride on our roads.
If you are injured while enjoying your bike tide, and the accident was the fault of someone else, you may be entitled to make a no-win, no-fee in Barnstaple claim and Accident Advice Helpline will be able to help you if the accident happened some time in the last three years.
No-win, no-fee in Barnstaple
Cycling injuries tend to be among the more serious, and most fatal injuries in cycle accidents happen because of damage to the head and brain. Some of the most common injuries are:
- Back or spinal injuries
- Facial injuries
- Road rash
- Broken bones
- Internal injuries
- Soft tissue injuries
- Head or brain injuries
- Eye injuries
- Knee problems
The number of injuries that could result from an accident that was not your fault is limitless but should you find yourself Accident Advice Helpline are the law firm you should be contacting.
The scene of an accident
Any sort of accident on the roads, if injuries are sustained the police should be called. They will speak with everyone that was in the accident as well as any witnesses. From this information they have to compile an accident report, which may prove useful later when our lawyers are making your no-win, no-fee in Barnstaple personal injury compensation claim. When the police are taking details from everyone, you should make sure your voice is heard so that your perspective of the accident is included in the report.
