What can a bike injury lawyer do for you?
A bike injury lawyer is there to fight for the rights of a cyclist when s/he has been injured through no fault of their own. Such a legal professional will provide the help needed to file a claim for situations very similar to the above scenario. Many cyclists have no idea of their rights and as such, fail to handle an accident in the correct manner. This means that they jeopordise a monetary figure which the law states they are entitled to.
When a cyclist is grateful enough to be able to stand up and walk away from an accident, this does not mean that the person who caused the collision should walk away scot free. At Accident Advice Helpline we would recommend that in such a situation, vital steps are taken to ensure that evidence is gathered.
Always call 999
Firstly, the police should be called no matter how trivial the whole matter may seem. The cyclist should jot down the name and contact details of the driver along with his car registration number and insurance details. When the police file a report, it remains a permanent account of events which took place. This will back the cyclist up if he should ever wish to submit a claim to the third party’s insurers. If any witnesses were present, it is also important to write down their contact details.
Never admit to anything
If you wrestle with mistakes that you made with your cycling accident and have postponed seeking legal advice for fear of being proven to be in the wrong, speak with a company such as Accident Advice Helpline to find out if things really are as bad as they seem. You may be surprised!
