Here at Accident Advice Helpline, we can provide you with an injury lawyer in Cruden or elsewhere who will have brought many successful compensation claims to fruition for cyclists.
When you are a cyclist, you are exposed to a lot of risks whilst using our roads. Accidents can happen anywhere and at any time; however, for cyclists these accidents can often result in more serious injuries than those experienced by passengers in motor vehicles. This is because when you are inside a vehicle, you are afforded more protection from collisions and other forms of impact than if you are on a bicycle (or even a motorbike).
An injury lawyer in Cruden is aware of the potential for serious injury, as well as the need for ongoing treatment to ensure that you achieve a full recovery following your cycling accident. These factors can all have an effect on how much compensation you are likely to be awarded, should your claim be successful.
If you have been involved in a cycling accident, speak to an expert injury lawyer in Cruden or call us at Accident Advice Helpline today in order to find out how you can make a claim.
Types of accidents fought by an injury lawyer in Cruden
When you instruct an injury lawyer in Cruden, you will be pleased to know that they will have a wealth of experience in dealing with a variety of personal injury claims, including cycling accidents. Common types of accident on which they would have worked include:
- Cyclists who have been clipped by the wing mirror of a vehicle that has overtaken them too closely. This might cause the cyclist to be unseated from their bicycle, resulting in a variety of different injuries including the potential for broken bones, as well as obvious damage to the bicycle in question.
- Cyclists who have fallen from their bikes or been caused to swerve because of a pothole in the road that has not been mended or suitably maintained.
- Accident with other cyclists, for example while attending a cycling event.
Speak to us today
If you have been involved in an accident whilst riding your bicycle and have been injured as a result, it is important that you speak to us as quickly as possible. This is because there are strict time limits imposed on how long you have to make a claim. Therefore, if you think you would like to make a claim, you shouldn’t delay.
To find out if you are eligible to make a claim, you should take Accident Advice Helpline’s 30-second test, which you will find on our website. This will also give you a good estimate of how much your claim might be worth, although it cannot be completely accurate as there are many factors that are taken into account to establish how much compensation you might be awarded, for example loss of earnings, out-of-pocket expenses, as well as the nature and seriousness of the injury itself.
If you’d rather speak to an adviser then make sure you dial 0800 689 0500 or 0333 500 0993 to find out if you’re eligible to make a compensation claim.
