Whenever you hear of an accident on the road you instantly think of cars. Not every accident on the road involves both parties being cars. Other vehicles such as bicycles and motorbikes are also involved in accidents on the road and in many cases their injuries are much more severe.
Having an accident on the road with your bicycle can be an awful experience but with solicitors in Capernwray, or ones based elsewhere, you may be able to claim for some compensation.
Having evidence in any case is crucial in order for the case to be successful. Merely stating that the accident was not your fault cannot win the case so by being able to prove it your case stands a much better chance.
Solicitors in Capernwray say that the use of photographs is highly advisable and can be very effective. Having pictures of the scene of the accident can provide other parties, such as the judge, an insight into what happened and why it happened.
Using a camera or a mobile phone is acceptable for photographic evidence. However if at the time you are unable to take photographs due to injuries it is likely there will be photographs available from the emergency services, which solicitors in Capernwray, or ones based elsewhere, will be able to obtain.
Solicitors in Capernwray and Compensation
The amount of compensation to be claimed can vary on a large scale depending on various factors.
Compensation itself covers many different costs and circumstances so if your injuries are minimal or if your bicycle is not written off your payout would be much lower than if you sustained severe injuries and were out of work for an expanse of time.
Every attempt is made to settle a compensation case as soon as possible and keep it out of the courts. If your solicitor cannot settle the case then a hearing is arranged which you will attend with your solicitor.
