What to I do if I want to make a complaint?
We want to give you the best possible service. However, if at any point you become unhappy or concerned about the service our cycle accident team have provided to you then you should inform us immediately so that we can do our best to resolve the problem for you. In the first instance it may be helpful to contact the member of team who is working on your case to discuss any concerns and we will do our best to resolve any issues at this stage. If you feel that you would like to make a formal complaint then you can access our full complaints procedure click here.
What happens if I don’t agree with your views on the complaint?
If we are unable to resolve the complaint with you then you can have the complaint independently looked at by the Legal Ombudsman. The Legal Ombudsman investigates problems.
Before accepting a complaint for investigation the Legal Ombudsman will check that you have tried to resolve your complaint with us first. If you have, then you must take your complaint to the Legal Ombudsman:
- Within six months of receiving a final response to your complaint
- Six years from the date of act/omission; or
- Three years from when you should reasonably have known there was cause for complaint (only if the act took place more than six years ago).
- The act or omission, or when you should have reasonably known there was cause for complaint, must have been after 5 October 2010.
Further information about the Legal Ombudsman can be found at:
Call 0300 555 0333 between 8.30am to 5.30pm. For minicom call 0300 555 1777.
