About bicycle and car accident compensation claims
Every year, innocent cyclists are injured during collisions with cars. These accidents can often mean that the cyclist is left facing serious injuries, owing to the lack of protection they have against impact. Even if you are wearing high visibility clothing and a helmet, you may still come into contact with a car if the driver behind the wheel is being negligent and reckless. Even a minor cycling accident in Cwmbran can leave you facing a number of injuries, and may mean you have to take time off work in order to recover.
Accident Advice Helpline can help
If you have been involved in such an accident, ask yourself: was I at fault?
If the answer is no, you could be entitled to compensation. Provided that the driver was responsible, and the accident happened within the last three years, you could be within your legal rights to claim compensation. At Accident Advice Helpline, we have many years of experience handling bicycle and car accident compensation claims, and we can help you receive the money you deserve.
If another driver was speeding, failed to signal or stop, was driving erratically or was otherwise displaying negligence, they should be held accountable for the damage they have done.
How much could you claim for a cycling accident in Cwmbran?
The amount you could be awarded will depend on a number of factors, such as how bad the injuries are, how much you have had to pay in treatment costs, if you have lost any income because of the accident, and many other things. Your claims adviser will take all of this into consideration when determining how much you could claim.
Many cyclists receive thousands of pounds for their injuries, especially if they have had a serious accident. You can get a quote yourself without having to speak to an adviser if you wish by using our claims calculator. With this tool, you can get a quick estimate in just thirty seconds.
