Cycling accident FAQs
I had a nasty cycling accident in Dalwhinnie last year, can I claim compensation?
Yes, a personal injury solicitor can help with this. Accident Advice Helpline always recommend that you start a personal injury claim as soon as you can but legally you have up to 3 years to make a claim. If the accident caused serious injuries then you will get the higher levels of compensation. You can also claim for the money that you have lost because you are injured.
How much compensation will I get for being knocked off my bicycle by a speeding van?
If the van was driving too fast for the road or weather conditions then they may be at fault for the accident and you may be able to make a claim. Your solicitor will be able to advise you further but they will not be able to give you an exact figure for how much you will get in compensation. This is because no two claims are the same and each has to be assessed on its merits. It is a general rule of personal injury law that the more serious injuries are awarded the higher levels of compensation.
“Does Accident Advice Helpline only help cyclists?”
No, Accident Advice Helpline helps people who have been injured in accidents that were not their own fault – whatever the accident. They will establish who was to blame at the start of the claims process. Once liability has been admitted they will negotiate a sum in compensation.
