Bicycles are just as important as any other vehicle on the road. There is no hierarchy of which vehicle presides another on the road so if you are involved in an accident with another type of vehicle you should not feel that you cannot make a claim.
Making an accident claim is a right you have if you have been involved in a non fault accident in Rutherglen. Regardless of whether you are on a bicycle, in a car, bus or lorry you could make a claim on the injuries you sustain.
Making a claim for a non fault accident in Rutherglen
When it is safe to do so the most standard procedure after any accident is to get the other party’s details. Swapping insurance details and contact information allows any other involved party such as a solicitor to contact the opposition when needed.
If you have a mobile phone on you at the time this will come in handy. In most handsets cameras are now built in which will now benefit you. By taking photographs of the scene of the accident and any injuries or damages received as a result you can provide evidence of what really happened.
In addition photographs can also be useful should the other party provide you with false details. With their mug shot you can still trace them down.
Getting compensation for your injuries
After all the evidence you have gathered has been compiled into a case then your representative will make a series of negotiations with the other party regarding the Rutherglen accident claim.
Any amount of compensation to be awarded on completion of the case will also be discussed in the negotiations. If you are not sure how much compensation you may be entitled to your representative will be able to advise you on an approximate amount.
In most cases the case can be solved outside of a court however this doesn’t occur every time. Should your case end up at an official hearing your representative will accompany you and fight your corner.
If you were involved in an accident with your bicycle on the road you could be entitled to compensation. Providing it was a non fault accident in Rutherglen and someone else was repsonsible for your injuries, you should have a good chance of obtaining compensation.
