It is a fact that many people suffer injuries every day from accidents at work, in school, while driving or cycling, or even while shopping, which could have been avoided. If you have suffered an injury that was in no way your fault, you may be entitled to make UK cycling injury claims for the pain and suffering caused to you, together with any losses and expenses such as medical costs, transport, and loss of present and future earnings.
As with all personal injury compensation claims, you need to prove that your injury was caused by someone else’s negligence. Accident Advice Helpline personal injury solicitors will gather evidence and convincingly present it to insurers. Other accidents for which you may make a claim include:
- Accidents at work;
- Slips, trips and falls;
- Food poisoning;
- Sports injuries; and
- Road traffic accidents.
When should I make UK cycling injury claims?
You are advised to make a personal injury compensation claim as soon as possible. You need to report your case to the appropriate authority, such as the headteacher, employer or the management, local council or police. If there are any witnesses take their contact details, and where necessary take photos of the accident scene and what caused your injury. You should make your claim as quickly as possible because the details of the accident will still be fresh and clear in your mind.
As soon as our personal injury lawyers have details of your claim, they will assess and tell you whether you have a valid claim and advise you how to proceed further.
Your claims process should have started within three years of the date of your accident. The three-year limit is called a limitation period. There are circumstances in which the deadline can be extended, when the victim is a minor or if the case involves a case of industrial disease or illness.
