What is a cycling accident compensation claim?

A cycling accident compensation claim is a procedure initiated by an individual who has experienced injuries during a cycling accident caused by another party’s fault or negligence. Through this claim, victims can seek compensation for both tangible and intangible losses.

With Moore Barlow’s team of experienced bicycle accident lawyers, we guide our clients meticulously through each phase, ensuring clarity and confidence every step of the way.

How much compensation could I get for a bicycle accident claim?

Determining an exact figure is complex, as each case has its unique elements. Factors like the severity of injuries, medical expenses, loss of income, and future rehabilitation costs all play a role. Our commitment at Moore Barlow is to ensure that every aspect of your journey is accounted for, aiming to secure an amount that provides relief and aids in recovery.

Am I eligible to make a cycle accident claim?

Determining eligibility for a cycle accident claim hinges on various factors. Each cycling incident is unique, with a range of possible outcomes and implications. Moore Barlow especially focuses on cases involving the most serious cycling injuries, ensuring that those deeply affected receive the meticulous care and expertise they deserve.

Common scenarios where you might be eligible to make a cycle accident claim include:

  • Accidents where another road user, be it a driver or another cyclist, is at fault.
  • Situations where you were involved in an accident due to infrastructure issues, like potholes or poor signage.
  • Incidents involving vehicles that might have been uninsured or underinsured.
  • Accidents triggered by defective cycling equipment or components.
  • Hit-and-run instances where the responsible party can’t be identified or has evaded responsibility.

Navigating the complexities of a cycle accident claim might seem daunting. But rest assured, if you’re in doubt about your eligibility or find the process overwhelming, we are here to help. Moore Barlow’s dedicated team will comprehensively evaluate your situation, ensuring you receive the tailored advice and guidance pertinent to your unique circumstances.

What are the common injuries from a bicycle accident which leads to a claim?

Cycling accidents can result in a range of injuries. At Moore Barlow, we have observed an array of serious injuries that often lead to successful compensation claims. Some of these include:

Can I still claim cycle accident compensation if I wasn’t wearing a helmet?

Absolutely. Helmets, while crucial for safety, do not invalidate your rights to claim cycle injury compensation. However, the fact that you weren’t wearing a helmet might influence the amount of compensation, as it may be considered contributory negligence. It’s always recommended to consult our cycle accident solicitors to get a clearer understanding of how this might impact your claim.

What are the time limits for making a cycle accident claim?

The timeframe for initiating a claim post-accident is crucial. Generally, the window is three years from the accident’s date. However, there are circumstances where exceptions can be made, potentially extending this timeframe. It’s always prudent to act swiftly, ensuring that vital evidence remains accessible. Our cycling accident solicitors can provide guidance on these time-sensitive nuances.

Exceptions to the three-year rule includes:

  • Claims involving children: If the victim is a minor (under 18), the three-year window doesn’t start until their 18th birthday.
  • Lack of mental capacity: If the victim lacks the mental capacity to manage their affairs, the three-year period doesn’t apply.
  • Fatal accidents: If the accident results in death, the deceased’s family has three years from the date of death or the date of the post-mortem results, whichever is later, to make a claim.

What’s the process for making a cycling accident compensation claim?

The time following a cycling accident can be overwhelming. Beyond the physical trauma, people often face emotional and logistical challenges. During such times, seeking compensation might seem daunting, but it’s a crucial step towards recovery and finding closure.

At Moore Barlow, we recognise the importance of guiding our clients through each stage of a claim with utmost transparency and commitment. Here’s a glimpse into our streamlined process:

  • Initial consultation: The journey begins with a comprehensive consultation, allowing us to gauge the viability of your claim, grasp its nuances, and layout the path forward.
  • Investigation: Once we’ve understood the depth of your case, our dedicated team undertakes a rigorous investigation. This phase involves gathering crucial evidence, liaising with experts, and determining the complete scope of the claim.
  • Representation: With Moore Barlow by your side, you can be assured of relentless advocacy. We champion your cause, ensuring fair treatment, accurate representation, and unwavering commitment.
  • Compensation: Beyond the legal proceedings, our paramount goal is your wellbeing. We strive to secure a compensation amount that truly echoes the trauma and losses you’ve endured, ensuring it aids in your rehabilitation and recovery.

Can I make a no win, no fee claim after a cycle accident?

Yes. Your bicycle accident claim can be funded through various methods, including a Conditional Fee Agreement (CFA), commonly known as a “No Win, No Fee” arrangement. With a CFA, you won’t pay any legal fees upfront, and you’ll only be charged any applicable fees if your claim is successful.

Other funding options might include legal expense insurance, trade union funding, or private funding, depending on your individual circumstances. It’s essential to discuss your funding options with your solicitor to determine the best approach tailored to your situation.

How long does a bicycle accident claim take?

The duration of a claim varies extensively based on its complexity. While straightforward cases might find resolution within months, intricate cases, particularly those with grave injuries, might extend over a more extended period. But rest assured, our bicycle accident lawyers prioritize a thorough and just resolution above all.

What other support beyond compensation do our bicycle accident lawyers help with?

  • Rehabilitation support: Connecting you with medical professionals.
