Any capital city in the world is full with traffic, and London is no exception. Hazards for pedestrians include carelessness by motorists at traffic lights and crossings, and the silent and deadly bell-free bicycle bearing down on you from behind, on the pavement. Cyclists are not supposed to go off-road in an urban setting, but they do, and in a clash between bike and pavement-pounder, the body will definitely come off worst. Other hazards include loose paving, bad lighting, and obstructions by road works with inadequate pedestrian walkways set out. Cyclists are at risk particularly from large vehicles, and especially vulnerable when waiting at lights, to the left of a lorry or bus that wants to turn to the left.
Do you need an accident lawyer in City of London?
If you are a victim of an accident not your fault, and you have been searching for a legal expert to take your case, you may be wondering how to sift through all the search returns for the best one for your case. Never fear. A single call to our friendly telephone team will answer all your questions and address all your fears. Firstly, does your claim qualify? Our 30-second test will tell you, or you can ask your advisor to run through the conditions you must meet to be eligible to claim. Your Accident Advice Helpline representative can also give you an estimate of how much compensation you could receive, if you win your case. All he or she needs, after some preliminary details, is a brief description of your injuries and the treatment you have received, to be able to refer you to an accident lawyer in City of London.
How long will my claim take from start to finish?
There’s no single answer to this question, but we try to make the process as pain-free as possible. Once you’ve had a chat with us, and you have decided to start your claim, we refer you to a suitable accident lawyer in City of London. You will need to prove your case and your lawyer will advise you on how to do this. He or she will go through the details with you, and gather as much evidence as possible, including your medical reports, notes and photographs, accident and police reports (if for a road traffic accident) and any other information deemed relevant. Your lawyer will aim to take the stress off you, and not bother you with all the tiny detail unless absolutely necessary. You will have to attend an independent medical assessment, but otherwise, most claims, in our experience, are settled out of court, so it’s a matter of getting through the correspondence as straightforwardly as possible.
