Will I have to pay to claim?
We believe in justice for all. That's why we handle 98% of our cases as No Win No Fee claims. This ensures you will never be out of pocket, because we only get a fee when we win compensation for you. Many of our customers say that this is the safest and easiest way to make a cycle accident compensation claim.
Will I have to have a medical for my cycling accident claim?
Yes, every successful cycle accident claim needs to show evidence of your injuries to help us make a claim against the at fault party. That's why, as well as any medical reports or x-rays made at the time of your accident, we will usually arrange for you to see a doctor to assess how badly you have been hurt, and how long your injuries might take you to recover from.
Will I have to go to court for a cycling accident injury claim?
While some cycling injury cases do end up in court, most are settled between your Claims Direct lawyer and the at fault party or their insurance company. In many cases, you won't even have to come to our offices if you don't want to. We have offices conveniently located across the UK, but we're also happy to deal with you by phone and via post if you prefer.
What sort of cycle accident injuries can I claim for?
As we said above, cyclists are in more danger on Britain's roads than just about anyone else. Many drivers don't give cyclists enough room, and HGV and bus drivers often don't see cyclists until it is too late. That's why we see a lot of claims for cycling injuries including:
These are just a few of the injuries that cyclists can suffer in an accident though. So if you have been hurt in any way in a cycle accident that was someone else's fault - or was only partly your fault - talk to one of our friendly advisors today.
Who is responsible for my cycling accident injury?
Cyclists are in danger from many other road users and even from councils failing to maintain the roads properly. So while you might think that every cycle accident injury compensation claim arises when a driver fails to see a cyclist, the fact is that all of these dangers are out there:
- Potholes: where a local council has failed to maintain roads
- Car doors: when they are opened suddenly
- Pedestrians: stepping out from the pavement without looking
- From drivers: not leaving cyclists enough room
- From HGVs and buses: who often don't see cyclists
In all of these cases, someone else would probably be at fault for your cycle accident injury. So however you have been hurt in an accident while cycling - even if it may have been partly your fault - talk to an expert lawyer today to ask about claiming the compensation you deserve for your injuries.
What can I claim for?
