Do you need to make a ‘no win, no fee’ East Devon compensation claim after being injured whilst riding a motorcycle?
Situated in the south west of England, the county of Devon is comprised of well-populated towns and more rural areas. With coastal seaside towns situated on both the north and south coasts, there are a range of landscapes within the area.
Although riding a motorcycle in any type of area can be potentially dangerous, driving in rural conditions can sometimes result in accidents occurring. Some of the roads throughout Devon and Cornwall are rather narrow country lanes. Other vehicles may not see you approaching, so it’s important to drive at a slow speed and sound your horn if you are travelling around blind bends. Even the larger roads in Devon can cause problems for motorcyclists. If they aren’t busy, some drivers may exceed the speed limit which could result in a serious accident occurring. Similarly, not all the roads in the area are well lit which may mean that other drivers struggle to see you once it gets dark.
Unfortunately, these factors can mean that accidents are relatively likely to occur and, if they do, you may need to make a ‘no win, no fee’ East Devon compensation claim. Of course, in order to be eligible to make a ‘no win, no fee’ East Devon claim, you will need to show that you weren’t responsible for the incident.
When road traffic accidents occurs, the people affected can suffer a variety of injuries. Motorcyclists often suffer particularly serious injuries due to the lack of protection a motorcycle offers. Whilst passengers in cars may be protected by the vehicle itself as well as safety features, such as airbags, motorcyclists don’t tend to benefit at all.
If you have sustained serious injuries, you main priority will be to get better as quickly as possible and you may not even think about making a ‘no win, no fee’ East Devon compensation claim. However, once you start to feel better, you may want to explore the possibility of obtaining compensation with help from ‘no win, no fee’ East Devon solicitors. Providing you start your claim within three years of the incident occurring, you should still be eligible to receive compensation.
