Are you making a High Peak ‘no win, no fee’ compensation claim after being hit by a cyclist?
If you’re a pedestrian in a city centre or in a busy town, you may be used to having to contend with cyclists, as well as vehicles and other road users. Although cyclists should remain on the carriageway at all times, there are instances in which cyclists will attempt to ride a bike on the pavement or in pedestrianised areas. Unfortunately, this can be very dangerous, particularly if it is in a busy area. If cyclists are trying to find a path through a group of pedestrians, it’s not unlikely that an accident will occur at some point.
If a cyclist does collide with a pedestrian, it could cause them to suffer very serious injuries indeed, particularly if the cyclist was travelling at a high speed. In all likelihood, they will be thrown to the floor and could sustain any number of injuries ranging from sprains to broken limbs or even head injuries.
Of course, it isn’t just pedestrians who can be harmed by cyclists. If you are driving a vehicle and a cyclist suddenly pulls out into your pathway or fails to give way to you, it’s likely that you could collide. Whilst cyclists normally fare worse than drivers in this type of situation, passengers in the vehicle can be harmed too. In some cases, drivers swerve to avoid hitting a cyclist, only to collide with something else, such as another vehicle, a shop face or a lamppost.
If you have been harmed by a cyclist and the incident wasn’t your fault, you may want to consider making a High Peak ‘no win, no fee’ compensation claim against them. If they admit that they are responsible for the incident then you should find it relatively easy to make a High Peak ‘no win, no fee’ compensation claim and obtain compensation.
