If you’re partial to using a bicycle to get around, there could well be a chance that you might end up being injured in an accident that came about as a consequence of a motorist failing to take your presence into consideration. In such circumstances, you may be able to take some form of Norwich claims personal injury action against the person responsible for your misfortune, but you will need to make sure you have evidence that lends credence to your version of events.
You will need to be able to prove not only that you were injured, but also that the accident in which you ended up getting hurt was really not your fault if you’re going to stand a decent chance of winning a personal injury case and walking away with a payout.
Proving what happened to you when making Norwich claims
The first thing you’ll need when making Norwich claims for compensation after being injured in an accident that was not your fault is proof of the injuries you sustained. This will be relatively straightforward to acquire — it is likely that you will have visited a doctor after being involved in the incident in question, so your injuries should have been fully documented in your medical records. If your injuries were not bad enough to warrant a visit to a medical professional, you might not have a very strong case for compensation.
As mentioned above, you will also need proof that the accident was not your fault. It will have been most useful if you were wearing one of those cameras that most cyclists seem to like to wear about their person these days. If you were recording your journey with a pair of smart glasses, this will serve the same purpose. Video evidence of a motorist pulling out in front of you will be almost irrefutable.
In absence of this sort of evidence, you would do well to note down the contact details of anybody who might have witnessed your accident. Any claims solicitor you engage might be able to call them to give evidence on your behalf.
