Bicycle accidents can be devastating. Bikes are very small compared to other road vehicles and their riders have very little protection.
Many road traffic accidents involving bicycles were caused by the negligent actions of other road users, such as motorists. Bike accidents involving other road users can be cause some of the most serious injuries and are known to cause serious injuries in a large proportion of cases.
Cyclists have a responsibility to protect themselves with helmets and should ensure they are visible to motorists and other road users, especially at night time. If they did not do this, in many cases they could still have a case for a compensation claim.
In many cases, drivers do not pay adequate attention or are careless or distracting when overtaking cyclists, which can result in a cycling accident.
Even if the cyclist was partially at fault for their personal injuries caused in a road traffic collision, it is still possible to make a compensation claim. The legal experts at Whitestone Solicitors can look into the circumstances of your case and give you professional advice on a No Win No Fee basis.
Sometimes, bicycle accidents are caused by hazardous road surfaces, such as cracks, potholes or open manholes. It is the responsibility of a local authority, such as the council, to perform road maintenance and ensure all of the streets in the region are safe for cyclists to use.
If you’ve suffered an injury in a cycling accident due to the negligence of a local authority, we can help you in your claim for compensation. Speak to one of our legal experts in road traffic accidents today and start the process of getting the money you deserve.
There is an inherent risk involved in extreme sports such as mountain biking or BMX-racing. Bike accidents are very common in these events and cyclists are frequently known to fall off their vehicles. However, in some, cases a trainer or other professional will have a duty of care to ensure the safety of their students, or a sports environment could contain hazards because of a person or organisation’s negligence.
We can give you professional legal advice if you have suffered a personal injury due to a cycling accident in a sports event. Speak to a specialist in bicycle accident claims by calling 0800-8-10-10-10.
Other bicycle accidents can be a result of negligence on the part of the manufacturer or a repair service. It is the responsibility of cyclists to maintain their vehicle and get it examined, serviced and repaired by a professional regularly. In some cases, there is evidence that bicycle repairers or bike manufacturers have behaved in a negligent fashion, which will mean it will be possible for you to make a compensation claim for a bicycle accident.
Uncontrolled animals such as dogs can also pose dangers to cyclists, such as by chasing bike riders and causing them to fall. In these cases, it is often the result of negligent actions caused by the pet owner. We can help you make your claim for compensation if you have been injured in an animal attack while on a bicycle. Call 0800 8 101010 today.
