Accident Advice Helpline regularly assist people making cycling claims in Stoke-on-Trent
If you are one of the thousands of cyclists who regularly commutes to work on two wheels instead of in four you will be well aware how vulnerable cyclists are and how many vehicle drivers are blissfully unaware of how little they look out for you or respect your bicycle lane – until they have made a direct connection with you. In collisions involving a bicycle and a vehicle it is nearly always the fault of the driver as they failed to ‘look properly’. We have heard this often when assisting people with their cycling claims in Stoke-on-Trent.
Worries and concerns
If you were unfortunate enough to sustain injuries whilst cycling to work and require several weeks recuperation how would you manage financially? Would your employer be sympathetic and continue to pay your full salary or would you have to manage on reduced means? What if you had to take several months off work if you sustained serious injuries? Would your landlord, mortgage provider, bank or credit card lender be supportive or would they put a freeze on your funds?
Most people who have been victims of accidents find themselves feeling very fragile and vulnerable in the immediate weeks and months following their accident and money worries can compound the situation. Let Accident Advice Helpline take the brunt of the strain and handle the intricacies and complexities of your injury claim whilst you get on with the important job of focussing on your recovery and getting all the rest and recuperation that you require.
