Bicycle accident claim tips

Cyclists do not leave the house planning to have an accident, however, being on the open road, even when using a cycle path, puts them at a higher risk of injury.  All too often cars do not leave enough space when passing by and, therefore, risk clipping the rider.  This can lead to the cyclist falling off and hurting themselves.

If you find yourself on the wrong end of a bicycle accident that was not your fault then you may be eligible to make a compensation claim.  You should make the claim as soon as possible after the accident so that the details are still fresh in your mind.  You must also make sure that you visit the doctor.  Even if you do not feel that you need to do so, injuries to the back and neck can often only present themselves several days, sometimes even weeks, later. On top of physical injuries there are also the psychological problems such as stress or anxiety that could make your life miserable.  It can be hard to get back out there when you have been injured, so this type of damage can possibly change your life for a long time.

So what tips are useful in the event that you want to make a claim for a bicycle accident?  First of all, you need to make sure that you have all the details of the accident that resulted in the injury.  This will include exactly what happened, when and where.  If there are witnesses to the accident, you will need to have their details as they will be able to support your claim by describing what happened at the scene.

Secondly, you will need to consult a doctor about your injuries.  The doctor will be able to confirm the exact type of injury and provide more information about how long your recovery may take and the effect it is going to have on your life.  Even lacerations and scars count as a personal injury as there are occasions when these do not fully heal and you are left with a permanent reminder of the accident.

The third tip is to consult a professional who is experienced in this type of claim.  The Accident Advice Helpline was established to help make the claims process easier for those who have been injured through no fault of their own and, as we operate on a ‘no win, no fee’* basis, those who do make a claim do not need to worry about upfront costs.  The aim is to achieve maximum compensation for those who have been injured due to the actions of others.  We will match you with a suitable solicitor who will then guide you through the progress of your particular case.

The amount of compensation you receive can vary according to the type of injury and the affect that it has had on your life, so in this regard every claim is different.  Finding out more from Accident Advice Helpline will not cost you anything and the end result could make a huge difference to your life so making a call can change things for you for good.
