Injury claim Newmachar
Cycling is one of the most popular pastimes in the UK. From toddlers to pensioners, most people love to cycle. However, with the roads so busy these days, you are sometimes taking your life in your own hands being on one of them.
The settlement of your personal injury compensation claim
Who settles your injury claim depends on who caused your accident. Most cycle accidents are solo events, so no one else is involved, but that does not mean that no one else is to blame. If you are thrown off your cycle because of a pothole or bad road surfaces, the local authority is responsible for maintaining the roads and would be liable. If your new bikes brakes are faulty and you can’t stop, so crash, the manufacturer would be liable.
If a motor vehicle of some sort is involved, it would be the motor insurance company, unless the driver is uninsured or untraceable, then it would be the Motor Insurers Bureau. They exist to pay compensation to injured parties of accidents where the party at fault has no insurance. Any company who offers motor insurance has to pay an annual levy to them, which is used to pay the compensation claims they receive.
