I’ve just been discharged from hospital after an accident in which I was knocked out. I cannot recall anything after leaving work to ride home, although I have been told an overtaking lorry was involved. What can I do to claim?

You need to move quickly. Call the Helpline because any witnesses will have to be traced, the Police file inspected and the scene may need to be examined. It is possible to present a claim on the basis of forensic evidence alone, but this requires a high degree of input from a specialist in accident investigation and reconstruction.

One approach which we have successfully utilised in such cases is a time/distance analysis (‘for how long was the cyclist there to be seen by the other party?’) utilizing a video upon which time and distance were superimposed.

For more information about our services or to start your claim, call 0808 100 9995 and speak to one of our specialist solicitors. We’re here to help. You can email us or schedule a callback.
