Making an injury claim
In order to make any kind of personal injury compensation claim, you have to be able to prove that you were an innocent victim and someone else was to blame for your accident. If your bike’s front wheel got stuck in a pothole, you might be eligible to make a personal injury compensation claim against the local authority whose duty it is to maintain streets and roads and keep them in a good state of repair. If the local authority can be proven to have been negligent in its duty you may be entitled to make a personal injury claim against it. You can also claim for damage to your property (your bike, mobile phone and protective gear, for example) if you make a claim.
Accidents in the street
If you have an accident in the street, you need to inform the police and call an ambulance so that you can receive immediate medical treatment. The police will write a report and inform the local authority of your accident. They will also appeal for witnesses who can support the fact that you were not to blame for your accident. If you can, take photographs showing the scene of the accident, so that a personal injury lawyer can use them as supporting evidence in a future personal injury compensation claim.
