If you’ve been in a cycling accident in the last three years and it wasn’t your fault, you may well be thinking about making a claim for compensation. You would be surprised to discover that many people don’t bother to claim compensation for injuries received in accidents, but this makes little sense because claiming for a cycling accident is so easy when you work through Accident Advice Helpline.
Claiming for a cycling accident made stress-free
When you come to us at Accident Advice Helpline, we like to ensure that the claiming process is as simple as possible. We have a helpline that you can access all day, every day, or you can contact us online. If you leave your details, our personal advisers will call you back – entirely at your convenience – and answer any questions you may have about making a claim with us.
The sort of things a personal adviser will want to know will include the details about your accident and the treatment you had for any injuries afterwards. For example, what do you remember about the accident? Do you know who was involved? In the case of cyclists, it’s a case of knowing if another driver was at fault, an errant pedestrian, another cyclist, or the road surface itself.
Then we’ll ask about the extent and severity of your injuries. We’re interested in all injuries you have sustained – the grazes as well as the bumps, bruises and fractures. If you received medical treatment, we will want to know where and when. Did you have a hospital stay? Did you have to take drugs for pain relief or to battle infection? Tell us about any physiotherapy you have had, or any treatment as a hospital outpatient. No detail is too small.
If you can supply any further evidence, this is an added bonus when we come to make your claim for compensation. This can take the form of CCTV, other witnesses, or even a police report. Tell us about these things when you get in touch.
