    No win no fee Carnwath lawyers

    If you are out enjoying a cycle ride, but are then injured in an accident that was not your fault, UK law says that you are entitled to compensation from the person who caused the accident. Making a no win no fee Carnwath personal injury claim is simple, quick and efficient if you let Accident Advice Helpline handle it for you.

    Trying to reduce the risks of injury so that you do not have to make a no win no fee Carnwath injury claim

    Cyclists are very vulnerable on the roads. They have very little protection compared to other road users, but there are some things they can do to try and reduce the risk of accidents and injuries, such as:

    • Always keep your bike well maintained and check lights and brakes before setting out;
    • Have a good knowledge of the Highway Code – cyclists do not have to take a test to be on the roads, but they should know the rules of the road;
    • Wear a well fitting, good quality safety helmet. These do not give as much protection as a motorbike helmet, but are better than nothing to protect your head. You should always buy your helmet from a reputable dealer, as there are many fakes on the market;
    • Knee and elbow protectors will help with these particular joints, which if damaged can be very painful and disabling;
    • Wear good cycling shoes to try and prevent broken bones in your feet, which can happen very easily;
    • Wear bright clothing, preferably high visibility so that other road users are more aware of you;
    • Do not ride next to another rider, making it difficult for vehicles to overtake you and avoiding the possibility of being knocked off your bike by the other rider; and
    • If you are passing parked cars, leave enough room for the door to be opened without smashing into you – it could throw you into the path of traffic travelling in the other direction.

    These are just a few of the precautions that may help when you are enjoying your cycle ride, and could mean you avoid the need to make a no win no fee Carnwath injury claim.

    Cycling accidents can create some serious injuries

    Because of the lack of protection, injuries sustained by cyclists in accidents tend to be serious and can include:

    • Facial injuries;
    • Anxiety and stress;
    • Soft tissue injuries;
    • Internal injuries;
    • Broken bones;
    • Road rash;
    • Joint damage;
    • Dental injuries;
    • Back injuries; and
    • Head injuries.
