Do you need to make a ‘no win, no fee’ Greater London compensation claim after being hurt whilst cycling?
Although more and more people are taking up cycling as a hobby and a sport, people still continue to get injured on our country’s roads. Despite encouraging people to cycle, rather than drive, the government has yet to respond to calls to make the roads safer for cyclists.
Unfortunately, this means that many people do suffer injuries whilst cycling in busy areas and a worryingly large number of these incidents do result in fatalities. Whilst drivers are sometimes criticised for not paying attention to cyclists on the roads, many claim that they do try to take account of people on bikes but that they are simply difficult to see in standard wing mirrors. Lorry drivers can find it particularly difficult to see cyclists, particularly if they are riding alongside the vehicle, rather than behind it.
Whenever a serious road traffic accident occurs in Greater London, it is investigated in order to determine exactly what happened. Unless people admit to being responsible, it is only after this investigation has taken place that it can be confirmed why the incident occurred and how it happened.
If you regularly ride your bike on the roads in Greater London, it’s likely that you have either been involved in an incident, or felt under threat of being involved in an accident, at some point. If you have sustained injuries which weren’t your fault, you may be pleased to learn that you could make a ‘no win, no fee’ Greater London compensation claim against the person responsible.
If you happened to be wearing a helmet or bike camera at the time of the accident, this could be extremely helpful in proving exactly who caused your injuries.
