Are you a cyclist who’s been injured in a road traffic accident that wasn’t your fault? Looking for information about making a claim for road traffic accident compensation in Pontarddulais?
You’re in the right place: Accident Advice Helpline are specialists in personal injury claims, and we have the knowledge and expertise you need to help you seek justice.
How do you make a claim for road traffic accident compensation in Pontarddulais?
As well as information about your injuries – so, for instance, your doctor’s diagnosis, any medication you’ve had to take, etc. – it will help if you can tell us about the accident in as much detail as possible.
In particular, it is always invaluable to have the name, and registration and insurance details of any driver involved in the accident, as well as the details of any witnesses.
Photographs of your injuries, the scene of the accident, and of any damage sustained to your bike or to other property are also really helpful in making a successful claim.
Also, you should provide evidence of any financial loss the accident has caused – so, for instance, you might have evidence of time off work, or receipts for transport costs incurred and bike repairs. Any details like this will help when it comes to making a claim.
If you were unlucky enough to be injured by a road user who failed to stop, or by a driver without insurance, don’t despair! Accident Advice Helpline still has the expertise to help.
How much compensation will you get?
The amount of compensation varies in each case, precisely because everyone is an individual, and will be affected differently by the accident and injuries sustained.
Cyclists are very vulnerable road users, and are at risk of severe injury in collisions with other road users. We can of course help if this happened to you, and your compensation award could be substantial.
However, even if you consider your injury to be fairly minor – some bad bruising, perhaps, or some nasty cuts – you are still able to claim compensation and are entitled to seek justice for an accident that wasn’t your fault.
Our 30 second test gives you an idea of what compensation you might receive – check it out now on the Accident Advice Helpline website if you’re curious!
Whatever happened to you, the law exists to help put you back in the position you’d be in were it not for the accident, as far as that is possible. So don’t hold back: if you were hurt and it wasn’t your fault, you should really consider making a claim.
