Claim for cycling accidents with Wolf Law

Cycling accidents can happen any time, anywhere. The majority of accidents that we deal with are the result of other motorists and road users. This is when you need Liverpool personal injury solicitors to help. Motorists often claim they couldn’t see the cyclists, but this is no excuse. Motorists should pay due care and attention at all times. And if the worst should happen, it’s them that are at fault. Not you. The most common accident involves a motor vehicle turning left. They don’t see the cyclist, and hit them. Even at a low speed this can have devastating consequences.

"Everything was handled in a timely and professional manner but what stood out for me is how this firm understood what was important to me - the nature of the case it’s self and not just my settlement. I really felt I had someone with me fighting for what was important to me, which lifted me up during what was a really stressful time for me. I can’t thank her and the fantastic team there enough, if ever I have the misfortune of needing a service like this again, they’re the only firm I will be using."

What should I do if I've been in a cycling accident?

If you’ve been injured in a cycling accident and the perpetrator failed to stop, then you can still claim. This is also true if they’re uninsured. Wolf Law Liverpool personal injury solicitors will process your claim through the Motor Insurers’ Bureau. You can make a claim for compensation up to 3 years after the incident. Unless it was a more serious accident that resulted in major injury or brain trauma. In this case you have longer. This is also the same if a third party is claiming on your behalf.

If you’ve been involved in a cycling accident it’s vital that you seek medical attention. It’s also important to get witness testimony. You should also get the contact details of the third party involved in the accident. If this isn’t possible, take a note of the vehicle’s registration number. If you can safely use your phone, try and take pictures of the scene and the people involved. This will serve as evidence for our team.

It’s not just about physical injuries. The trauma of a cycling accident can also cause emotional distress. This can lead to other psychological issues. It’s important to get a full mental health screening too after an accident.
