Do you need to make a compensation claim against a cyclist?
When road traffic accidents occur, cyclists are often the victims. If a vehicle and a cyclist collide, for example, it is often the latter who will sustain the most serious injuries, and they may need to make a compensation claim as a result.
However, this doesn’t mean that cyclists can’t be held responsible for incidents as well. If a cyclist causes an accident to occur, they could certainly be liable for any injuries which people suffer, and they could face legal action.
If a cyclist collides with a pedestrian, for example, they could be held responsible and the pedestrian could be eligible to make compensation claims in Buckinghamshire.
If you’ve been injured because of a cyclist or road user, and you’re keen to find out more about making a claim for compensation, why not contact Accident Advice Helpline today?
When could you make compensation claims in Buckinghamshire?
Although people tend to assume that the claims process is very complex, it really doesn’t have to be. In most cases, it’s far easier to make a claim than people realise. If you’ve been injured in an accident that wasn’t your fault, you should find that you’re eligible to make a claim.
However, you will need to show that you received medical help for your injuries before you’re able to obtain compensation for them. Fortunately, claimants can obtain compensation for a wide range of injuries, including sprains, cuts and lacerations, head injuries, broken bones, and even muscle damage.
Have you left it too late to make a claim?
If you were hurt in the past few years but you didn’t realise that you could make compensation claims in Buckinghamshire, it may not be too late for you to take legal action. In general, claimants have up to three years in which to make a claim after an accident, so you could still obtain compensation for your injuries.
