Claiming compensation for a cycling injury
Although thousands of people cycle on a regular basis, it can be a rather dangerous sport. Whilst there are off-road cycling facilities, many use their bikes in order to get around.
Whilst cycling does provide a great alternative to driving or using public transport, it isn’t without risks. Often other road users don’t look out for cyclists and this can lead to accidents occurring.
Unfortunately, when cyclists are involved in collisions, they can sustain very serious injuries. Whilst a cycling helmet and safetywear may prevent some injuries, people can still require intensive medical treatment following a cycling-related injury.
If you’ve been hurt whilst cycling and you don’t think you were at fault, it may be worth seeking legal advice. If someone else was responsible for your injuries, a lawyer in Fulham may be able to help you obtain compensation from them.
When can you make a claim with a lawyer in Fulham?
As people aren’t always familiar with the claims process, they can fall victim to the misconceptions surrounding the industry. For example, people sometimes think that you can only obtain compensation for very serious injuries.
In fact, this isn’t quite the case. A lawyer in Fulham can help you to make a claim for almost any type of injury, providing you received medical treatment for it. This includes psychological injuries, as well as physical ones, so it’s important to include these in your claim if it’s relevant.
Of course, in order to make a successful claim with a lawyer in Fulham, you will also need to show that you weren’t responsible for your injuries and most claimants will need to take legal action within 3 years’ of the incident.
