Bike / Bicycle Accidents
If a driver of a motor vehicle is injured, or their vehicle has been damaged in an accident on the roads, they are protected by the insurance companies.
A Cyclist, on the other hand, may rarely receive the same legal protection, & may often be left to fend for themselves, following an accident on the road that has left them with an injury & in need of medical attention/treatment.
In cases where another party may have been responsible for your accident & resulting injuries, you may be eligible to make a cycle claim.
Compensation that is awarded in such cases could help you to cover the cost of medical fees & repairs to your bike, as well as any potential loss of earnings from time spent out of work.
Accident victims only have a certain amount of time to file a compensation claim, so it is important to file as quickly as possible, and where necessary, to consult a solicitor.
