There are many risks involved in cycling – and a considerable number of these risks result from the careless actions of motorists. Unfortunately, because you do not have the same level of protection as motorists, you have a greater chance of sustaining a serious personal injury while you are cycling in Pleasington.
Obtain a sense of justice – claim compensation for your cycling accident
If you have been injured in a cycling accident in Pleasington, you should be able to claim compensation through the negligent motorist’s insurance company. Although insurance is compulsory, many motorists choose to drive without insurance. In cases where the offending motorist was not insured, you will still be able to recover compensation for your personal injury. However, you will need to make your claim through the Motor Insurers’ Bureau (MIB).
To successfully make a cycling accident claim, you will need to call Accident Advice Helpline and discuss your case in detail with one of our trained claims advisers. We will be able to provide you with honest legal advice on your chances of success.
Once you have given us the go ahead to commence your claim, we will send a Letter of Claim to the negligent motorist or, if your accident involved an uninsured driver, the MIB. If the negligent motorist admits liability, your accident lawyer will value your claim and invite the motorist’s insurance company to make a settlement offer. When the motorist makes an offer, your lawyer will provide you with clear advice on whether to accept or reject the settlement amount. If you feel the offer is too low, your accident lawyer may recommend that you raise proceedings in court.
Thanks to our 100% no win, no fee policy, you will be able to take your case to court without worrying about the cost.
At Accident Advice Helpline, we will always aim to resolve your claim in the shortest possible time frame, without risking the value of your compensation settlement. If you have made a full recovery from your injuries and the negligent motorist readily accepts liability, you can expect to settle your case within a few months. However, if your case is complex, or needs to progress to court, your case may take some time to resolve.
