Personal Injury Cases
Once launched on public roads, the law considers cyclists to be “road users” like any other, just like motorists, trucks or pedestrians. In practice, however, the use of a bicycle does not have the same constraints and consequences in terms of insurance. If you have been the victim of a bicycle accident, you may be entitled to compensation.
Keep in mind that cycling enthusiasts are among the most vulnerable potential victims on the road. Because bikes are a lot smaller than other vehicles, cyclists are at a greater risk for getting injured. Cyclists also have their bodies exposed, which further increases the risk of injuries. The head, neck, face and back are the parts of the body that are most likely to get injured.
No insurance is required to use a bicycle. But taking out bicycle insurance may be good idea to protect you in the event of a physical or physical damage, or also in the event of theft of your bike.

The Importance of Legal Representation
You may seek damages for different reasons, including the payment of medical bills and as compensation for lost wages. Damages may also be sought for the pain and suffering related to the injury.
