No win no fee* Cases with lawyers and cycle riding accidents

Some people would love to ride their bicycle but have one problem with it. That problem is for the fear of having an accident with a motor vehicle, some people just do not feel safe on the roads because of the amount of traffic.

If you do have an accident on your bicycle, the most common way is that cycle accidents happen is  because of a defect on the surface they are traveling on, with no other vehicle  involved. These solo events often cause cyclists very serious injuries.

If this is the case and your accident was because of a defect on the road, then the injuries, although often serious,  tend to be a lot less serious than injuries sustained when the cyclist is involved in a collision with a motor vehicle, and this is what frightens people and stops them riding cycles.

How to know who is to blame

No matter what the cause of the accident, someone somewhere has been negligent.  It could be the driver of the motor vehicle, the authority responsible for maintaining the road, or even the cyclist.  In the case of a defective cycle the manufacturer could be at fault. It really does not matter what the cause, as long as the accident was not your own fault, you could be entitled to claim compensation for your injuries.

What cycle accident injuries can happen

It is not always apparent how serious the cycle accident injuries are immediately after the event, and sometimes an injury that seemed to be minor can develop into something more serious and possibly even permanent. For this reason, accident victims should always be medically checked, before any injury has the chance to worsen.

What you should do

One of the first things to happen after your accident, especially if another motor vehicle was involved, is to wait for the police to arrive. They will then fill out an accident report.

Unfortunately it is not unusual for the Police to assume it must have been the cyclist’s fault, and not want to talk to you.  Make sure, if you are able to, that they have your side of events, as well as the drivers. If you are too badly injured to do this, try to ensure someone does it on your behalf as soon as possible.

Make sure you, or someone else on your behalf, have the driver’s details and contact information, as well as that of any witnesses. You should seek medical treatment for your injuries, as these will record the severity of them, and these records could prove useful later on in negotiations.
