Top tips for a successful cycling accident compensation claim

If you have been involved in a cycling accident in the last three years and you don’t feel it was your fault, you could be entitled to a compensation payout. 

Compensation can help to cover medical costs which you may have had to pay, and costs to the repairs of your bike if it was badly damaged in the accident. 

It can seem like a daunting task to start a compensation claim, but with the right preparation and the backing of an experienced cycling solicitor like ourselves, the process can be relatively stress free.

We believe the following tips will greatly help you towards a successful compensation claim:

Gather Your Evidence

A good start to any compensation claim is compelling evidence. You need to gather together any and all the information about the accident together. Were there eye-witnesses? Did you have to pay for medical treatment? Was your bike damaged? 

Anything that cost you money, or think may help with your compensation claim is worth keeping safe. We recommend getting everything together in a folder so that its easy to access at any point during the claim process.

Seek Professional Help

It may be appealing to try and take on a case on your own, but without the professional legal care and experience offered by a cycling solicitor such as ourselves, you are minimising the chance of walking away with the compensation you deserve. 

The best thing you can do is seek professional help if you are serious about claiming compensation for your cycling accident.
