Making a claim for compensation for a cycling accident in Cardiff and around the UK can seem like a daunting prospect, especially if you are already trying to deal with the aftermath of a serious accident. So we thought that providing a few tips for making an accident claim might help you decide whether it is worthwhile, and provide an insight into claiming with us.
So here are some tips about eligibility and the claims process.
Stay within the three-year time limit
This is one of the most important points to remember. A three-year time limit applies to making compensation claims in the UK, and although there are certain exceptions such as when a minor is involved, going over this limit will probably exclude you.
The three-year limit starts from when your cycling accident in Cardiff happened, or from when your injuries were linked to the accident. Additionally, you should start investigating the claims process well within the three years, to allow you plenty of time to make this important decision.
Use no-win, no-fee* to make your accident claim
The no-win, no-fee* system of financing personal injury compensation claims means that you will not need to pay an upfront fee to start your claim. Most ethical law firms operate under this scheme, which significantly reduces your financial risk in claiming.
Keep all evidence related to your claim in one place
You may have taken photos at the scene of the accident, or made a note of witnesses’ names and addresses. Evidence such as this should be kept in one easily accessible file at home, so that you can pass it on to your no-win, no-fee* solicitor.
Get an estimate of the compensation
Knowing how much you could receive if you make a claim often helps with the decision-making process. We can provide an estimate in two different ways:
- Via the ’30-second test’ on our website: you just input a few details about the accident and your injuries
- By calling our helpline: our advisors will be pleased to provide you with an estimate straight away
