Cycle Accident Compensation
We Start With A Free Consultation
If we can assure you that we think you will succeed in bringing your cycle accident claim, we’ll take your case on.
To begin with our cycling lawyers will investigate and gather the evidence needed to prove to your opponent (and most likely their insurance company) that they were wholly or partly at fault, and that you have a valid claim.
In many cases the opponent and their insurers will admit fault, or as we say, liability. If this happens we look to settle your case. If liability is not admitted we pursue the case on your behalf, all the way to the Court if necessary.
How Long Does A Case Take To Settle?
This is a difficult question to answer, as there are many elements involved. We’ve represented clients whose cases take only a few months to complete, while others take longer.
In our experience, the quicker a cycle injury case concludes is not always for the better. As cyclists tend to suffer more serious injuries, it may take longer for symptoms to develop and the long-term effects of an injury to become apparent.
In turn, this means it may take some time to assess the full effects of the injury on your life. The payments you receive has to compensate you for life; so concluding a case too early could mean you receive less money than you should.
What if I Need Help Urgently
We aim to get you an interim financial payment. This allows you to pay for any treatments you need and make any necessary changes to your home and lifestyle in the immediate future.
In the meantime, with the help of medical professionals, we build up a picture of the financial sum you should receive to provide you with the best possible quality of life.
How Much Will it Cost Me to Make a Claim?
No doubt you’ve seen the TV adverts with the phrases ‘no win no fee’ and ‘100% compensation’. Our cycling lawyers advise everyone who is thinking of making a claim following a cycling accident to call us and we can talk you through the whole process and answer all of your questions. If you prefer we can arrange for you to come and see us at our offices or we can come to you!
