Full Cycle – Tips on what to do in the event of an accident

Cycling on an open road

Shine Lawyers own Stuart Le Grand talks through some helpful tips in the event of an accident.

See the full video from Full Cycle below.

 

“Whilst we use our best endeavours to avoid accidents, unfortunately they do happen. Here’s a few tips for you if you are involved in an accident.

  • Be sure to record the details of the accident, and that involves collecting as many details as possible, including the name and address of the driver, details of the car, any eye witness and photographs of the scene if possible.
  • If the police have not attended the scene, be sure to call them and report the incident.
  • I also recommend that you get a medical assessment, it’s important to ensure that your injuries are identified at an early stage.

These things are pretty basic and pretty common sense but they are really important when it comes to progressing a case in the future.”
