Our injury solicitor in Orpington
Our injury solicitor in Orpington is very experienced in dealing with all manner of personal injury claims.
An example of a case that an injury solicitor in Orpington could assist you with might involve the following.
A bike courier was travelling to a drop off point when his bicycle clips a raised piece of unmarked ironwork in the middle of the road. Due to the vulnerable nature of the bicycle the cyclist is unable to control his bike as it swerves away from his intended path, and he crashed into the railings at the side of the road.
He is injured, sustaining cuts and bruises to his legs and an injury to his back. Thankfully, it is a relatively minor injury which does not require long term treatment and should not cause any significant problems in the future.
The cyclist decides to contact Accident Advice Helpline and speak to one of our injury solicitors in Orpington to find out if he can make a claim. He is advised that as the ironwork should have been signed, warning road users of the potential for hazard, that he does have a claim due to someone else’s negligence.
The injury solicitor in Orpington finds out who is responsible for maintaining that particular stretch of road and goes about organising the cyclist’s claim. Information is gathered and evidence provided to the third party.
The cyclist was awarded compensation for the injuries he suffered as well as additional money to compensate for the damages caused to his bike.
