Making a cycling claim in Shoreham-by-Sea
Shoreham-by-Sea sits between the South Downs and the Adur Valley and as such is home to many great cycle routes. If you’re a fan of bike riding, you can also go for a cycle along the seafront, perhaps east into Brighton, or west in the general direction of Bognor Regis. Although Brighton does have some cycle lanes and has recently introduced a 20 mph speed limit throughout the city, cycling anywhere can be a risky business. Shoreham-by-Sea and all of its surroundings are no exception to this general rule.
Cyclists are injured and sometimes killed on the UK’s roads throughout the year, often through no fault of their own. Drivers of large vehicles such as trucks, buses and lorries often have trouble seeing cyclists, especially at junctions and corners, which can have disastrous consequences. If you’ve been unfortunate enough to become involved in an accident through no fault of your own whilst out and about on your bicycle, you may be able to make a cycling claim in Shoreham-by-Sea.
Launching an injury claim case
It’s only fair that you receive some sort of compensation if you do suffer a mischief as a consequence of somebody else’s negligence, whilst enjoying a leisurely bike ride. At the end of the day, taking injury claim action comes down to a question of justice. If you’ve been seriously inconvenienced by your injuries, you deserve some sort of recompense. Who should pay? The person that was responsible for your accident of course. If they were in a car at the time, it’s likely that they would have come out of the incident relatively unscathed, not that that’s what taking action is about.
On top of any compensation you may be entitled to, you may also be able to claim back costs that arose as a result of your injuries. These could include, but are not limited to, travel and medical expenses and lost income. If your bike was ruined in your accident, you may also be able to claim for this. You may find this a particularly attractive prospect if you were riding an expensive bike and didn’t have it insured.
