Motorists turning across riders are one of the most frequent causes of spinal cord injuries in the UK and the effects are life-changing.
Cycling Lawyer knows that when the worst happens, the right help from an approachable solicitor, who also has the best technical knowledge, can make all the difference.
We always look to get early interim payments so that you don’t need to be concerned about paying bills in the short term. This can also fund private rehabilitation so you can get the best care, and make the best recovery.
Cycling Lawyer is a specialist spinal injury claim solicitors firm, achieving client compensation valued in the millions. We have an established record of getting clients the right outcome.
What early help is available?
Where the other side caused your accident, we can put in place private rehabilitation, nursing care, adapted accommodation or transportation, and secure funds so that you can focus on getting your life back on track.
We know that rehabilitation after a spinal injury is long and complex and we can instruct a case manager to help through the process.
As cycling accident specialists, we are ideally placed to resolve liability in your favour as early as possible, so that you can focus on your recovery, and we can focus on maximising your compensation.
What is case management?
A case manager is someone who helps an injured person by coordinating all of their interactions with the services they will require as a result of their injury.
This will involve liaising with your GP and also being the fulcrum between private and NHS clinical services. They can also liaise with your employers, help deal with the benefits agencies and anyone else you need to contact.
Will I have to pay for rehabilitation?
We always push for interim payments so that financial concerns are one less thing for our client’s to be worried about. In addition, we can usually use The Rehabilitation Code to get direct rehabilitation funding from the defendant’s insurers.
How much can I claim after a spinal injury?
No amount of money can compensate for the effects of a spinal cord injury, but the difference between being financially secure for the rest of your life, and not, can be profound.
As well as substantial damages for your pain and suffering, we’ll ensure your claim includes provision for suitable accommodation, transportation, treatment, care and domestic assistance, and loss of income.
We aim to put you in the financial position to be able to start living life again.
Why should I instruct Cycling Lawyer?
While it’s important that you instruct an expert in spinal injury claims it’s equally as important that you’re your solicitor specialises in cycling accident claims. If liability for the accident is split, the court will deduct a portion of your damages equal to your percentage of liability.
A specialist cycling accident solicitor is best placed to ensure this doesn’t happen.
Will a claim affect my benefits?
The DWP do look at whether you have any lump sums in the bank when assessing benefits and this can include even interim payments from a spinal injury claim. We can arrange for a Personal Injury Trust to be set up, so that your entitlement to benefits remains unaffected, leaving you with the money to live a safe, fulfilling life.
How soon should you start a claim?
Early intervention is key, in both a medical and legal sense. The sooner you contact us, the sooner we can help.
