Riding the open road
There is nothing as exhilarating as riding your bike on the open road, watching the amazing British countryside whizz on by, and taking in the sights and sounds of the towns and villages you come across.
But not as exhilarating is the ride in an ambulance if you are knocked from your bike by a vehicle. This is where the Accident Advice Helpline and injury lawyers in Woodhall Spa come in. With our help, you could be back on the road sooner than you think.
Knocked off your bicycle?
The personal injuries sustained when you are knocked from your bike can be substantial, and for many clients of our injury lawyers in Woodhall Spa they can be life-changing and life-limiting. The little bodily protection, apart from helmets that most cyclists wear, means that the list can be extensive, including:
- Broken limbs;
- Torn ligaments and damaged muscles;
- Internal injuries; and
- Extensive bruising.
Treatment today on the NHS has developed beyond our imagining, meaning that the most complex of injuries can be ‘repaired.’ However, for some people they need to make considerable changes to be able to continue with an independent life.
Get the facts of compensation
Claiming compensation is a form of legal action, so you will need the expert of both Accident Advice Helpline and our injury lawyers in Woodhall Spa. We will be able to assess your claims right at the very start for eligibility; if you decided to continue with your claim for personal injuries, we will be with you every step of the way.
The accident must not have been your fault – with the majority of cyclists knocked off at junctions by cars, it is easy to understand that your accident was not your fault. Reporting the incident to the police will certainly help your compensation claim, as they will attribute ‘blame,’ as well as possibly laying charges against the other driver.
There is also a deadline which applies to claiming compensation; for personal injuries gained from road traffic accidents, you must lodge your compensation claim within three years of the accident. In fact, our injury lawyers in Woodhall Spa will be unable to help you further if your accident was more than three years ago.
You will also need to have received medical attention and treatment for your injuries, which if you have knocked from your bicycle you will more than likely do, with your injuries being so painful and uncomfortable!
