Do you need to claim road traffic accident compensation in City of London?
Although there is a vast network of public transport throughout the City of London, the roads remain busy during both the day and night. Whilst many people do rely on public transport services to get around, many people also use private vehicles.
Due to the constant traffic in the City, there is a risk of accidents occurring. If you’re hurt whilst travelling in the area, you may find that you’re eligible to claim road traffic accident compensation in City of London. However, you will need to be able to show that you weren’t responsible for the incident if you plan on making a claim.
Although drivers and passengers can easily sustain injuries when an accident occurs, cyclists and pedestrians can get hurt too. Indeed, in highly populated inner city areas, cyclists are often in danger on the roads.
Unfortunately, drivers may not always see cyclists on the roads and, if they aren’t aware that they are there, they can easily collide with them. Although drivers are afforded some protection from their vehicles, cyclists can often take the brunt of the impact and sustain serious injuries as a result.
If you’ve been injured whilst cycling, you could also be eligible to claim for road traffic accident compensation in City of London, providing you didn’t cause the incident.
When should you make a claim?
If you’ve been hurt and you want to obtain compensation, it’s important not to leave it too late. In most cases, claimants only have three years in which to make a claim after an accident so it may be important to act quickly.
Although you should never feel rushed into making a claim, taking legal action soon after an incident may be easier as you should have all the evidence and details to hand.
