Personal injury claims in Nairn: FAQs
Can you claim compensation for an accident involving a HGV?
Accident Advice Helpline can help you to start a personal injury claims in Nairn case if the accident was not your fault. If the accident was caused by the driver of the HGV, then you may be able to claim from him/her, the company that he/she works for or from an insurance policy.
How much compensation will you get for being knocked off a bicycle by a HGV turning right?
This is a frequent scenario for accidents involving HGVs and cyclists and sadly features in personal accident claims cases. The HGV driver sometimes turns left without realising that there is a bicycle on the inside lane. If the HGV driver was at fault for the accident, then you may be able to claim compensation.
It is not possible to guarantee how much compensation you will get for your claim. This is because the circumstances of every accident and of every injury are different. It is a general rule that the more serious injuries are awarded the higher levels of compensation, because of the impact that they have on the lives of the injured people.
Does Accident Advice Helpline only help cyclists?
No, Accident Advice Helpline can help whoever was not at fault for any kind of accident. They will establish this at the start of the claims process. Of course, some accidents involving HGVs and cyclists are actually the cyclists fault and the HGV driver could in theory claim for their injuries. However, they are much less likely to be injured because of the vehicle that they are driving and you can only make a personal injury claim if you are actually injured. This can be a physical or psychological injury.
