Cycle accident compensation claims

If you’ve had an accident on your bike, cycle accident compensation is often the last thing on your mind.  However, if you do intend to make a claim, you need to get the ball rolling as soon as you can. That’s because, there is a time limit from the date of your accident to be able to claim. There are a few exceptions to this, but time is usually of the essence.

Marley Solicitors are experienced claim handlers in this area, and we know it’s always best to get the process started as soon as possible.  This not only ensures that the events are still fresh in your mind. But it also helps us gather evidence and talk to any potential witnesses more easily. Cycle accident compensation claims are not complex, but to ensure your case is successful, it’s important to act quickly.

Cycle accident compensation – how it works

Perhaps your accident was caused by negligent driving. Or increasingly commonly, by poorly maintained road surfaces.  Either way, you may have a claim.  In essence, if you’ve been involved in a bike accident for any reason that wasn’t your fault, you may be able to claim cycle accident compensation.

Your wellbeing after a cycle accident

The most important factor following a bike accident is you and your health and wellbeing. A compensation claim can help you with this.  It ensures you get the treatment and help you need to get fit and well.  As well as compensating you for the stress, trauma and loss you may have experienced during the accident.   For many too, it helps bring closure to an otherwise awful event.  But British Cycling offer lots of other valuable advice for riders in this position too.
