Cambridge no win no fee* claims
Cyclists and motorists have been mortal enemies ever since they started sharing road space. Cyclists claim that motorists routinely ignore them and seem to be happy to force them into an accident. Motorists on the other hand complain that riders routinely slot themselves into a car’s blind spot and never stop to think whether they are visible or not. If an accident happens, therefore, it can be difficult to be certain who is at fault.
How road traffic accidents work
If you’re a cyclist and you’re knocked over by a driver, then there will be a number of factors which will determine if compensation is to be awarded. The first of these will be to show that the accident was not your fault. More than that, though, you need to prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that the accident was the fault of the driver in question. Because you’re bringing the case in a court of law the rules of innocent until proven guilty apply which means if you’re not able to demonstrate your case to the full satisfaction of the court they will have no option but to find in favour of the defendant.
In order to be eligible to claim compensation you also need to show that the injuries have had a significant impact on your quality of life. In general this means showing that you required medical attention because of the injuries. If you can’t demonstrate this, then in most cases you will not be considered to be due any compensation at all. As such it’s a good idea to get more than one medical assessment as it’s easy for a doctor to make mistakes in their initial diagnosis. Equally further medical issues may arise which the first assessment may not have been able to spot.
