If you live in Hassocks, then you may have availed yourself of a bicycle from Hassocks Community Cycle Hire. The people behind it are seeking to expand, and encourage more people to hire their bikes, which are, of course an environmentally-friendly mode of transport.
However other people who use Britain’s roads are not very careful about cyclists. If you live in Hassocks or elsewhere, you may know this to your cost and be seeking injury lawyers in Hassocks (for example) at this moment.
Injury lawyers in Hassocks
You usually have three years in which to file a personal injury compensation claim for an injury sustained in an accident that was not your fault. However, this is not the case one hundred per cent of the time. You should check how long you have in which to file your specific claim, with a firm of injury lawyers in Hassocks, or a firm of injury lawyers anywhere else in the British Isles. For this information, you may want to call us at Accident Advice Helpline.
You also have three years in which to file a claim for an illness which you and your injury lawyers in Hassocks for example, can prove was caused through the negligence of another person. You may have been diagnosed with a work-related illness, for example and so could have grounds for filing a personal injury compensation claim against your employer.
You may have had an accident while riding your bicycle because of the inconsiderate actions of a driver or a passenger. For example, if a vehicle’s doors were opened and you were knocked off your bike, you could, possibly, with the help of your injury lawyer, prove that your injury was caused by the motorist or their passenger’s negligence. You could claim compensation from the driver’s insurance company.
You may have fallen off your bike and been injured when your front wheel sank into a pothole in the road. In such a case, you could claim personal injury compensation for any injury you sustained, as well as damage to your bike from the local authority which is responsible for the maintenance of streets.
You would have three years in which to file a personal injury compensation claim for a cycling injury sustained in an accident that you can prove was not your fault.
