How cycling accident cases are funded
At IMS our cycling accident claims are funded on a No Win, No Fee basis, which is known as a ‘conditional fee agreement.’
The benefit of a No Win, No Fee agreement is that there are no financial risks to you and you will not have to pay any upfront costs to start a claim.
You will only be required to contribute towards your legal fees if your claim is successful.
In the event your cycling accident claim is unsuccessful, you will not have to pay us anything.
If we are successful in securing compensation, the contribution you make is capped at 25% from the award you receive for your personal injury claim and we will ensure we explain the funding arrangements during our initial consultation before you enter into any arrangements with us.
How compensation claims are calculated
The amount you can claim will vary depending on your circumstances and the level of injuries sustained. The award depends on the length of time in which you suffer from the injuries, the extent of the treatment required and the impact the injuries have had on your everyday life.
Our personal injury team will be able to give you a valuation of your cycling accident claim once we have received completed medical evidence.
Making a claim after a cycling accident
Adults have three years from the date of their accident to start the claims process. If a claim has not been settled or Court Proceedings have not been issued by the 3rd anniversary of the accident, your claim may be considered ‘time-barred’ leaving you ineligible for compensation.
For children who have sustained injury as a result of an accident the three-year time limit still applies, however a child has three years from the date of their 18th birthday in which to process a claim.
Therefore a claim processed after the date of a child’s 18th birthday must have either settled or Court proceedings issued before they reach their 21st birthday. Again their claim may be considered ‘time-barred’ leaving them ineligible for compensation if either of the above have not been completed.
