Cycling Accident Compensation Leicester
With cycling currently at a level of unprecedented popularity in the UK, it’s no surprise that we have seen a rise in cycling accidents in Leicester and Leicestershire. Cycling accident compensation is paid out frequently these days due to this unfortunate rise in accidents.
The reason is due to the way in which cyclists and bike riders don’t have any real protection when it comes to other road users, and are so very vulnerable. The chances of being injured are higher than other road users involved in collisions, potholes in the road, and other hazards.
Making Cycling Accident Claims
If you have been hurt whilst riding, and the incident was not your fault, then there’s every chance that you could be able to claim for bicycle accident compensation in Leicester using our friendly no win no fee* personal injury solicitors.
In order to stand the best chance of success when making cycling accident claims in Leicester, there are some things you need to be aware of. Here is our short guide to what to do if involved in an accident.
- If your injuries require medical treatment make sure an ambulance is called.
- Keep any subsequent medical records.
- If possible, ask any witnesses if they would be prepared to make a statement.
- Write down number plate details of any cars involved in the accident.
- Where possible, take photographic evidence of damages and injuries.
- If the police attend, take copies of their reports, or ask for them in the post.
