    Mountain biking accident advice


    Mountain biking accident advice

    Personal injury claims can be complicated, even if the circumstances appear to be relatively simple; that is why it is important that you speak to a qualified expert when you are looking for mountain biking accident advice. Accident Advice Helpline is a personal injury law firm with years of experience in helping accident victims get the compensation they deserve. Our team of highly qualified in-house lawyers can provide the advice and help you need to successfully claim compensation after suffering an injury due to an accident.

    Responsibility and compensation

    In most cases, a compensation claim will centre on whether the other parties involved in an accident took reasonable precautions and fulfilled the responsibility they had to ensure safety. In the case of a mountain biking accident, this can cover everything from the safety of a bike offered for rental to the actions of other road users.

    For example, your accident may have been caused by a defective mountain bike with faulty brakes, in which case the company you rented the bike from could be liable for your injuries and owe you compensation. On the other hand, in a case where you are involved in an accident with another road user – including other cyclists, or motor vehicle drivers – if that other road user was reckless in their behaviour, they may also be liable for compensation.

    You are responsible for your own safety

    The efforts that you make to ensure a safe mountain biking experience can have a big impact on whether you will be able to fully recover any losses you incur due to an accident. It is extremely important that you wear a helmet whenever you are cycling – including mountain biking – and that, if you use your own bike, you ensure that it is maintained properly and in good working order before you ride. If you have any doubts as to whether you have sufficient grounds to make a claim for compensation, you should call our 24-hour free helpline on 0800 689 0500 and let our team of expert solicitors look into the matter for you.

    No two claims are the same

    One of the reasons why Accident Advice Helpline has had such success helping accident victims claim for compensation is that we treat each case individually. In many cases, the amount of compensation awarded is at least in part determined by what may appear to be minor details; only a firm with substantial experience, that is willing to spend the amount of time on a case that it requires, will be able to maximise the amount of compensation you receive. Our team of in-house lawyers will work closely with you, and examine every detail of the event.

We won’t charge you anything up front, and we work on a no win no fee basis.
