No win no fee Castle Cary claims
If you are a keen cyclist, then it does not matter if you live in Castle Cary or anywhere else within the UK, an accident can happen at any time or any place. If you do have an accident and you get injured, and the accident was not your fault then you may be able to make an injury claim, using a ‘no win, no fee’ Castle Cary injury lawyer.
There are more common cycle injuries that you can have, but we realise that no 2 accidents are the same. For example you could sustain any of the following:
- Broken Coccyx
- Broken Arm or leg

- Road Rash
- Anxiety and other psychological problems
- Concussion or other head injuries
- Broken pelvis
You should seek Medical Treatment
You should always seek medical treatment for your cycle injuries. The reports from doctors can prove to be invaluable when fighting your case, and what might seem to be initially a minor injury can later develop into something more serious. A pre-existing condition can be made worse by an accident, and your doctor’s opinions on this can be crucial when a ‘no win, no fee’ Castle Cary lawyer is helping you make your claim..
You could have Anxiety and Other Psychological Problems
Anxiety and other psychological problems can be cycle injuries as much as broken bones or cuts and bruises, and should be treated as such when making your compensation claim. These can be equally as disabling as having joints in plaster, and they can take longer to heal, so will not be treated lightly by a ‘no win, no fee’ Castle Cary lawyer.
Nearly half of all cycle injuries where a motor vehicle has been involved are to the head. These range from minor concussion and cuts, to permanent brain damage or fatal fractures to the skull. Most fatalities in cycle accidents are caused by injuries to the head. Wearing a good quality, well fitting cycle helmet can help avoid this type of injury, but if the collision is bad enough even the helmet will not stop the head injury totally.
Evidence that you should get if possible
It is also a good idea to take photographs of your cycle injuries, not only immediately after the accident, but also as they either improve or get worse.
Keep a note every couple of days of how the cycle injuries are progressing, this diary together with the photographs will provide a time line for the injuries, which could help determine the amount of compensation you are awarded. If an independent doctor is asked to produce a report then these records would be extremely useful.
