Cyclists are injured on the UK’s busy roads every single day. While accidents do happen, it is often the case that negligent drivers or unsafe road conditions are responsible for cycling accidents in Burton Upon Trent. Because cyclists are so exposed, even a minor accident can result in a number of serious injuries. If you weren’t to blame for your accident, you shouldn’t be left paying for the consequences out of pocket.
The law states that if you’ve been injured within the past three years because of someone else’s negligence, you have a right to make a claim. Our lawyers can help you follow through on this right, making it easy and affordable to make a no win no fee* claim if you can prove you were in no way at fault.
Is there a time limit?
Your accident must have taken place within the past three years in order for you to be eligible to make a no win no fee* claim for a cycling accident in Burton upon Trent.
How can I prove I’m not responsible?
In order to strengthen your case, you should be able to provide as much information to your solicitor as possible that supports your position as the innocent party. This can include copies of the official police accident report, photographs of the accident taken with a camera phone, as well as the contact information of any witnesses.
How much will I receive in compensation for a cycling accident in Burton upon Trent?
The amount you receive will depend on your injuries, subsequent treatment and the nature of the accident, but many of our clients have gone on to receive thousands of pounds in a payout. To find out how much you could potentially win in a settlement, use our thirty-second claims calculator online to get a rough quote instantly, or phone our lawyers to discuss your case with an expert.
Is it expensive?
Our lawyers don’t require any money upfront to get started, and there’s nothing payable at all unless your case is successful. We don’t believe that legal fees should stand in the way of affording the legal care you need, and with our conditional fee agreement, they won’t.
