Do you need an accident claims lawyer in Flint because you had an accident when you were cycling, and you got injured?
The risks of cycling
Cyclists have every right to use the roads, but they are always at much more danger of being injured than a motorist would be – and, of course, it’s because of the motorists that they are at risk. Cars, vans and lorries go much faster than bikes, they are much larger, and their occupants are protected inside the vehicle.
Every year, an accident lawyer in Flint will have to deal with several claims for injuries to cyclists that have happened on the road – and these injuries can be severe. If a car bumps into another car at low speed, the victim might get whiplash – but if a car bumps into a bike, the cyclist could suffer multiple fractures, blood loss, or even a severe head injury.
What accidents might happen?
Here are some scenarios that are common:
1) A motorist emerges into a cyclist’s path. They might turn from a side street, not taking notice of the cyclist, and collide with the bike.
2) A cyclist rides into a vehicle’s path. This is the other way round from No. 1, but a collision is the result.
3) A cyclist and a motorist are setting off at a junction. The vehicle goes too close to the bike and knocks the cyclist down.
What happens if you get into an accident?
If you have a cycling accident, and you get injured, you could make a claim later on through an accident claims lawyer in Flint. To get started with a claim, you will need to call Accident Advice Helpline and speak to an advisor. Then, if you’re eligible – that is, if the accident wasn’t your fault – your details will be passed to our team of no-win, no-fee personal injury lawyers.
First of all, you should get medical treatment, of course – don’t call us until you feel well enough to pick up the phone and get started. We’ll take the strain out of the process, but you will want to be physically and mentally fit enough to cope with claiming compensation.
As part of the process, you will have to attend an additional medical assessment. You’ll also be required to provide evidence of any expenses you have incurred, so it’s a good idea to start a file and keep all your records together for your case.
