If you’ve been injured in a cycling accident in Biggin Hill in the last three years and it was someone else’s fault, call Accident Advice Helpline. We may be able to help you claim compensation.
As the number of cyclists on the road increases, so does the likelihood of them being involved in an accident. In fact, cyclists are often the most vulnerable road users; especially in big cities, where they are sometimes invisible to drivers of large lorries, or anywhere cycle lanes are not immediately obvious.
In order to make a successful claim for compensation, someone else must have been responsible for your accident and the resultant injuries. For example; if you were knocked off your bike by another vehicle, fell off due to poor road conditions such as potholes, or your tyres slipped on a substance that should not have been on the road, you may have an eligible case.
Making a claim for a cycling accident in Biggin Hill
If you have been injured, you need to collect as many details as you can about the accident. Try and get the names, contact information and insurance details for anyone else involved and also those of any witnesses. If you can take pictures – of any damage, specific road conditions, or debris from the accident – you should try to do so, returning to the scene if you need to.
You should also make sure that you get proper medical attention. Even if you think you’re OK and it doesn’t look as though there’s anything wrong, it’s essential that you see a doctor. This is particularly important if you’ve suffered any sort of head injury and were not wearing a helmet. Should you not seek medical attention, it’s also highly unlikely that you will be deemed eligible to claim compensation.
