Cyclists are extremely vulnerable when riding out on the roads and the odds of getting injured are pretty high should a cyclist get involved in any type of collision or become injured due to other causes such as potholes.
Do you have a case?
Whether you were knocked off you bike by a car or lorry; or hit a pothole which caused injuries, we can use our expertise to ensure that we get you the compensation you deserve, so you can concentrate on getting better.
If you have been involved in a cycling accident, you may be able to make a claim for compensation for injuries or damages and even losses suffered from the accident. This also applies even if you were partly at fault. If the accident was caused by a motorist then you claim through his insurers if they are uninsured you can claim through the Motor Insurers Bureau. However; if the accident was in the result of a poorly maintained road / cycle path then you may be entitled to compensation against the local authority or landowner.
A claim can be made if you have suffered an accident or injury due to the negligence of a driver or the a poor maintained road / path. There is a strict three-year time limit for pursuing compensation, which usually begins from the day of the accident. However, because some symptoms do not always present themselves right away, this limit may begin from the date you knew the injury was caused by an accident or injury was caused by the beautician.
To make a successful claim, you need to prove that the accident / injury was caused by someone else’s negligence, whether it was your surgeon or a nurse. This is where Aequitas Legal comes in. Our solicitors will help you compile evidence to present to your hospital’s insurers and will ensure you understand where you stand at every stage of the process, as well as what your options are going forward.
