What if you are cycling in Castle Combe, or anywhere else within the UK for that matter, and you are involved in an accident that was not your own fault, so you get injured. You may be able to make a no win no fee in Castle Combe injury claim and use a personal injury lawyer from Accident Advice Helpline.
The accident must have happened no more than three years before you make your claim, unless you are only claiming for the damage to your cycle, when you have six years to make the claim.
If you are out enjoying a ride on your cycle and someone else causes you an injury, UK law says that you are entitled to claim compensation from them.
No win, no fee in Castle Combe claims
This will depend on how severe you injuries are as every cycle injury claim is different, but there are some things that most people can claim for:
- Loss of earnings
- Care and assistance costs
- Any other cost or loss that is as a result of the accident
- Pain and suffering
- Anxiety and stress
- Damage to your cycle.
- Any travel costs incurred because you cannot ride your cycle to and from work after being injured
- Damage to your clothing
- Reasonable private treatment costs
Your injury lawyer will make sure that they claim for everything that they can because they will look at every aspect and effect that the accident has had on your life.
Keep the receipts and any other evidence
An insurance company will want as much proof as possible for any expenses being claimed. It is a good idea to keep all original purchase receipts for your cycle and accessories. Get a quote for repairs and replacement of anything that is damaged, making sure you use a reputable cycle shop.
They will also want to see proof of your loss of earnings, so its no a bad idea to hold onto your wage slips. Most employers will provide copies, or confirm income to the insurance companies in this situation.
