How to avoid using a ‘no win, no fee*’ Castle Ashby injury lawyer
As with all transportation, you need to take necessary precautions to help avoid an accident, and then having to use an injury lawyer. Ensure that your cycle fulfills all the legal requirements, including lights if riding at night, as well as wearing something reflective.
You should always ensure that you are wearing the correct apparel; a good fitting helmet is essential. Never buy a used helmet, as damage doesn’t always show. Make sure it is a snug fit and wear it in the proper position, not tilted onto the back of your head.
Most safety on the roads is common sense, and a good understanding of the Highway Code can be useful. Cyclists are the only people allowed on our roads without taking a test, so here are some tips that may help, such as:
- If you come across parked cars watch out for doors opening and try to leave enough room so that if this does happen you are not knocked off your cycle.
- Don’t wear headphones for music or your mobile while riding. This impairs your concentration and means you cannot hear approaching traffic that you may not be able to see.
- Use arm signals if you are changing direction, or turning left or right
- Always obey the traffic lights and road signals; they are there for a reason.
- When riding with someone else don’t ride next to each other on busy or narrow roads.
