Recent research has shown that the number of accidents involving cyclists is ever increasing. In fact, according to The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (“ROSPA”), almost twenty thousand cyclists were killed or injured in those accidents that were reported, with 15% of these accidents resulting in fatality or serious injury. In addition to this, it is estimated that a large number of cycling accidents are not reported, something which means that there are an even higher number of cycling accidents each year. If you have suffered an injury as a result of an accident whilst cycling it is important that you speak to one of Manchester’s personal injury experts who will be able to assess the claim.
Make a No Win, No Fee Claim for a Cycling Accident
Cycling accidents can occur as the result of the negligence of other cyclists, motorists or even pedestrians. Regardless of whether another car, lorry or bus has been involved, or whether you were cycling to work, for leisure or even professionally, you may be entitled to compensation if it can be shown that the cycling accident was not caused by you. However, it is important that you allow a Manchester personal injury solicitor** who specialises in cycling accidents to provide assistance in the matter and look at the technicalities of the compensation claim process.
Cycling Accident Compensation
The amount of compensation that may be awarded will depend on a number of factors, which two of the most important factors being the severity of the injury suffered and the amount of loss (both emotional and financial) that has been suffered. Injuries suffered from cycling accidents are extremely wide ranging and the amount of compensation can not be estimated until the particular facts of a case have been considered, but as a general rule the more serious the injury the greater the compensation. For example, a serious leg injury is likely to result in more compensation than a small cut to the knee. However, this is not always the case and this is another reason why it is important to speak to Manchester experts in cycling accidents and related law as not only will they understand the ramifications of your particular injury, they will also have an appreciation of the law relating to cycling lanes, road markings and other cycling related legislation.
