Should I use a local personal injury solicitor to make a cycling injury claim?
Many people looking to bring a claim for a cycling injury wonder which solicitor they should choose.
As it is not necessary for you to meet with a solicitor in his office, you may prefer to appoint a solicitor who is experienced in handling cycling injury claims, as he will best understand your injuries and how they may affect your life.
Since all correspondence is conducted through telephone, email and letter and there are no documents to sign you will not need to attend an office.
Where will I have a medical if I need one?
If you have sustained injuries through your cycling accident, whichever solicitor you appoint, you will be required to undergo a medical assessment.
The medical will be carried out by a professional close to where you live, or wherever is most convenient for you.
Its purpose is to determine the extent of the injuries and the longer term impact on your life. For example, if you have dislocated or broken limbs there will be a period of time for them to heal, perhaps followed by a period of physiotherapy before you may be able to work. This medical assessment is vital in helping calculate the probable cost of treatment and any other financial losses you may sustain.
If I wish, can I have a visit from a solicitor?
Of course, some people prefer to have a face to face meeting to discuss their claim with the solicitor who is representing them.
If your injuries mean you are not able to travel, or if you have been admitted to hospital after a serious collision, we can arrange for a solicitor to visit you either at your home or whilst you are in hospital.
