How can Cycling Accidents arise?
There are many ways that cycling accidents can arise, typically involving another vehicle. As you’ll be all too aware, accidents carry a far greater probability of serious consequences for you as a cyclist, compared with motorists. Often, drivers are less likely to spot a cyclist than they are to spot another motor vehicle. An accident may arise because they don’t see you, or they see you too late to avoid an accident.
This can cause complications in terms of liability. Often, drivers try to imply that the cyclist was in the wrong, because in their mind you must have done something wrong for them to not see you soon enough. If the other party involved in your accident has refused to accept responsibility, this should not deter you from seeking legal advice.
What type of injuries can I claim if I’ve been involved in a cycling accident?
We can advise on any injury, ranging from minor ones right through to catastrophic, life-changing injuries. We can also advise on fatal injuries if you have suffered the loss of a loved one or family member due to a cycling accident.
How much compensation might I receive?
The amount of compensation you receive for your injuries very much depends on your specific circumstances. That’s why we recommend that you get in touch with us promptly so that we can discuss the specifics of your accident in more detail.
You may be able to claim for the following if they are a direct result of your injuries:
- Compensation for distress and upheaval
- Loss of earnings and financial losses incurred
- Medical costs, prescription fees, care and rehabilitation costs
- Damage to your property, such as your bike
- Travel expenses incurred as a result of the incident, such as hire cars or taxis
Do I have a valid claim for compensation?
If you can answer yes to all three of the following questions, we recommend that you contact us to discuss your circumstances further:
- Was the incident within the last three years?
- Was someone else to blame for the incident?
- Were you injured as a result of the incident?
Answering ‘yes’ to all three doesn’t mean that a successful claim is certain. However, these questions are key to the claims process. Answering yes to all three does indicate that you have a greater chance of being entitled to claims. Getting prompt, specialist legal advice could be beneficial.
Because of the three-year time limit, it’s important that you contact us promptly so that we can start the process for you.
