Been injured during a cycling accident that wasn’t your fault? Let a personal injury lawyer in Leintwardine assist you with your personal injury claim
If you would like to make an injury claim because you have been injured during an accident that wasn’t your fault it is important that you establish that your accident and injury qualifies the legal criteria.
As a general rule of thumb, the law states an individual qualifies to make a personal injury claim if they have been hurt or injured during an accident that wasn’t their fault; that the no fault accident must have occurred within the past three years (two years if it occurred whilst at sea) and that medical attention was required.
If you think that your accident and injury may fit the criteria check for certain by putting your details into the Thirty Second Test available via Accident Advice Helpline.
If your accident and injuries entitle you to make an injury claim you would be well advised to engage a reliable and reputable personal injury lawyer in Leintwardine who has plenty of experience in assisting with cycling injury claims.
Common Cycling Injuries Include:
- Broken Collarbone

Severe Cycling Injuries Include:
- Serious Head Trauma

And in some cases injuries can not only be life changing but they can be fatal.
If you have been unlucky enough to be hurt or injured whilst cycling during a no fault road traffic accident it is highly likely that your will be entitled to receive compensation for your injury, loss, and inconvenience.
Your bike may be damaged beyond repair, your cycling kit ruined and require replacing. Potentially you may have been made unable to work whilst you have been recovering from your injuries, so you may be entitled to receive a loss of earnings payment.
It’s unlikely that you will have been able to cycle with an injury and broken bike so you could be entitled to receive compensation for your alternative transportation costs.
Discuss the financial impact and consequences of your no fault road traffic accident with your personal injury lawyer in Leintwardine to discover what other elements of compensation you may be eligible to receive.
