Cyclists are recognised as vulnerable road users and such vulnerability makes it almost inevitable that a cyclist will come off the worst in any accident involving a car. Even a minor incident can result in a cyclist being thrown off their bicycle and sustaining horrendous injuries.
If you believe that your injuries were sustained as a result of the fault of another person/motorist contact BCC Litigation Department who will fully advise you of your rights. It is imperative that you do so without delay.
One normally has two years from the date of the accident to bring a compensation claim for personal injuries. This differs in the case of an injured child in that the ‘limitation period’ does not start to run until the child reaches 18 years old – A child may bring a claim for injuries sustained as a child up until his/her 20th birthday.
