Are you a cyclist who’s been injured on the roads in Winchester? Was the accident caused by someone else, but you’re the one who suffered? We at Accident Advice Helpline are here to help ordinary people like you seek the compensation they’re entitled to. Read on and see if you’re entitled to claim compensation for a cycling accident in Winchester.
How do you know if you’re entitled to make a claim?
Essentially, if you were in an accident and you suffered an injury of any kind, and the accident wasn’t your fault, then you’re very likely entitled to make claim compensation.
There are a few important requirements. For instance, the accident should usually have happened in the last three years, and it’s essential you’ve seen a doctor or other medical professional about your injuries.
It’s also really helpful if you have the contact and insurance details of the road user who caused the accident, and information about where the accident took place, what happened, and if there were any witnesses. Photographs of the scene, of any damage to your bike, and of your injuries can also be extremely useful.
However, if you’re unlucky enough to have been injured by a driver who failed to stop, or who was not insured, please still get in touch. We are experts in all areas of personal injury law, and will do our best to help you make a claim if it’s possible.
What might I be awarded for my cycling accident in Winchester?
The sum you could be awarded depends on the severity of your injuries, as well as on other aspects of your claim. It really is something that is decided on a case-by-case basis.
When deciding how much to award you, the courts will assess your injuries, the impact they’ve had on you and any any financial losses you’ve incurred.
People often think only of physical injuries when making this type of claim. However, it’s possible to make a claim for psychological suffering, too, especially when it is significant, and perhaps negatively affects your ability to enjoy something you loved before the accident, such as cycling.
