Road Traffic Accident Claims Involving Cyclists
Cyclists And Road Traffic Accidents
Cyclists are extremely vulnerable to becoming involved in road traffic accidents and the statistics certainly bear this out. 16,196 were involved in accidents in 2006 according to the Department of Transport, of which 136 were killed. If you are a cyclist and you have been involved in a road traffic accident which was caused by somebody else and the road traffic accident happened within the last three years, then you are legally entitled to claim compensation. Nevertheless, cyclists sadly can often become involved in very complex legal liability disputes. This is especially the case when the cyclist has sustained a head injury and their recollection of what happened is consequently rather hazy or they cannot recall anything at all.
Given this, it is crucial that you obtain specialist legal representation and this is where we can help as we specialise in accidents involving cyclists and we are amongst the leading firms who handle cases in this very specialised area of law.
Drivers are legally required to have at least third party insurance cover. Hence, where a driver is liable for injuries to a cyclist caused by an accident, then the drivers insurers will be responsible for compensating the cyclist.
If you are a cyclists who has had the misfortune to be involved in a road traffic accident with an untracable or uninsured driver, then a claim can be made to the Motor Insurers' Bureau which was set up specifically to cover the victims of accident caused by uninsured and untraceable drivers. This again is an area we have a great deal of expertise in.
