When you are recovering from injury, it can be difficult to find the energy to think about legal or financial matters, but making a bike polo accident claim doesn’t need to be difficult. At Accident Advice Helpline we aim to make it as simple as possible.
We will start by giving you an initial telephone consultation for free, so it won’t cost you anything to find out whether you can make a claim, and we might even be able to estimate the amount of compensation to which you could be entitled.
Receiving this advice doesn’t put you under any obligation to use our services if you want to make a claim, but as we have a great record of success, and work on a no win, no fee basis, you may decide that it is a good idea anyway.
Common kinds of bike polo accident claim
Nobody decides to play bike polo without realising that there are risks involved. This doesn’t mean, however, that it is always your fault if you are involved in an accident. If you are hurt because someone else is overly aggressive, careless or negligent, you could well be entitled to make a bike polo accident claim.
The same is true if you are injured because of a problem with your bike or other equipment if, for example, it is relatively new or you have had it professionally repaired and been told that it is safe. If you are not sure if any of this applies to your accident, you are welcome to call us anyway so that we can work out if there are any grounds on which to make a claim.
Whatever type of bike polo accident you have had, it is important to see a doctor (and not just a first aider) as soon as possible. This matters, not only for the sake of your health, but also because a formal medical record of your injuries is necessary in order for you to make a bike polo accident claim.
Any claim that you do make will normally have to be processed within three years, unless you were under the age of 18 at the time, in which case you can claim at any time before you turn 21.
What claiming involves
If you want to make a bike polo accident claim through Accident Advice Helpline, the first thing we will do is introduce you to one of our sports injury solicitors. Because of their experience in similar cases, they are best placed to help you to win yours. They will also be familiar with the sport, which will make it much easier for you to explain exactly what happened.
You will be able to work with your solicitor over the telephone so there should be no need to worry about having to travel if you have a leg injury or are feeling really unwell. In some cases we are able to arrange an out of court settlement so that you don’t need to appear in court. We will deal with the bulk of the paperwork but we won’t make any big decisions without consulting you, so you will always remain in control.
Just call us on 0800 689 0500 when you feel ready to get started. We won’t keep you waiting and will do our best to help you get the compensation you deserve as quickly as possible.
