We will fight to get you the compensation you deserve for any injury sustained as well as damage to your bike and kit.
If you’re unfortunate enough to suffer any injury it is vital you are properly recompensed to cover the damage, and any further treatment or rehabilitation necessary.
Around 20,000 cyclists are killed or injured on UK roads every year, although this may be much higher as many go unreported.
Our expert team of cycle accident solicitors are on hand to ensure making an accident claim is as smooth as possible and will handle the complex legal process so you don’t have to.
If you have been injured, you should seek medical attention immediately. Once your injuries have been sufficiently treated, you should (if possible) gather as much evidence as possible, such as:
- Photographic evidence of the accident scene
- Your injuries
- Any clothing or kit/equipment damaged in the accident
- Record the date and time
- Obtain the details of any witnesses, including name, telephone number, address
- Obtain the details of the person(s) who caused the accident, including name telephone number, address
After the evidence of the incident has been gathered the next step is to instruct one of our dedicated cycle claim specialist solicitors.
We will then provide free legal advice to ascertain whether you have a claim.
After the initial chat we will then proceed to comprehensively explore the evidence of your incident including photos of the scene, damage to clothing, kit and witness details for us to follow up.
We will also assess any financial loss you have suffered as a result due to damage of your bike and equipment, as well as any for any medical treatment and loss of earnings.
This will allow us to get your claim started against the person or organisation responsible for the accident.
In some cases, liability may be split between different parties. By providing details of the claim, those responsible will be able to consider the evidence against them and hopefully a fair settlement can be reached swiftly without having to go to court.
At Cycle Accident Claims we will ensure that your bicycle is repaired as soon as possible. If your cycle is not repairable then we will recover the full market value for your cycle and kit.
Even if your injuries may not seem severe enough to go to hospital, you will likely still need to go to a medical professional to obtain a full assessment of your wellbeing following the accident.
For serious injuries sustained, more specialised medical help may be required.
First and foremost our goal is to ensure your injuries do not affect your quality of living. The earlier you start on the road to recovery the better. Getting on the right rehabilitation plan can help get you back on the bike quicker, return to work, or, if a more serious injury has been sustained, ensure that you can still have independence with tasks that may have initially been affected. Should you require rehabilitation we would arrange for you to see professional, medical experts to examine your injury and give a clear explanation, as well as giving necessary treatment.
An independent medical report will be obtained to provide evidence of the impact the accident has had on your quality of life.
This will help establish the amount of compensation needed in order to get you back to your same position prior to the accident.
Once everything has been quantified we can then set about recovering the best possible compensation that you deserve.
