    No win no fee lawyers in Craven

    The ‘no win, no fee’ lawyers in Craven deal with what happens after a cycling accident – they deal with the personal injury claim that follows if the accident was someone else’s fault. Many people use Accident Advice Helpline to get in touch with ‘no win, no fee’ lawyers in Craven who can help with their claim. However, there are many issues to do with cycling accidents that happen BEFORE the accident happens. This is to do with the prevention of the accident and the no win no fee lawyers in Craven are not so involved in this.

    Sadly, the ‘no win, no fee’ lawyers in Craven hear about the same driving errors that have caused injuries to cyclists over and over again. Some of cycling injuries are extremely serious and startlingly 19,000 cyclists are killed or injured in reported road accidents in the UK each year.

    Here are the preventative steps that can be taken a long time before the lawyers become involved.

    ‘No win, no fee’ lawyers in Craven – preventing accidents by buying the right bike

    Start off by purchasing a bike that is the correct size for you. If you try and ride a bike that is too big then it will be dangerous because you will not be able to put your feet on the floor to support yourself. The taller you are, the bigger bike you will need. Remember that riding in heavy traffic requires a lot of time with your feet on the floor!

    Check the bike before you set off. The saddle needs to be adjusted to your exact height – remember this if you are using someone else’s bike. Make sure that you can comfortably reach the handle bars and brakes and to achieve this you can usually adjust the handlebars to your preferred position. Some cyclists prefer their handlebars to be in a ‘head up’ position – it makes them feel more confident in traffic and may be more suitable for city riding.
