PEDESTRIAN AND CYCLIST CLAIMS

January 11, 2019

Pedestrians and cyclists are very vulnerable and often sustain very serious personal injuries if they are unfortunate enough to be in collision with a motor vehicle. Hundreds of pedestrians are injured by cyclists in the UK every year, many of them seriously, and occasionally fatally. While local government continues to encourage cycling as an environmentally friendly means of reducing congestion, the anger felt by many at the number of serious injuries sustained by pedestrians involved in collisions with bicycles was illustrated by a private members’ bill introduced in Parliament in 2011, which aimed to create a crime of causing death or serious injury through dangerous or reckless cycling. Those who would like to see legislation in this area highlight the perceived arrogance of many cyclists, and their general disregard of pedestrian safety. At Pennine Solicitors we can pursue the insurance company of the driver involved, to secure compensation for your injuries and any financial loss you may have sustained.

WHIPLASH INJURY CLAIMS

January 11, 2019

Whiplash is one of the most common injuries associated with road traffic collisions and is caused by the head being violently thrown forward and then back again in a whipping motion. It can sometimes take several days before the injury becomes evident and symptoms can include; neck and shoulder pain, nausea, headaches and in some cases can lead to depression. Compensation is there to get you back to the same position you were in before an accident so there is an amount of money awarded by the courts depending on how serious the whiplash injury was, and also to cover any out of pocket expenses. We can help you recover thousands of pounds of compensation that you are legally entitled to if you’ve suffered whiplash in an accident that wasn’t your fault. We have a specialist team of solicitors dealing almost exclusively with whiplash compensation and similar injuries. In addition our LVI (low velocity impact) team handle claims where genuine injuries have been caused by low speed collisions where insurance usually fight claims against them as a matter of course often with unfounded allegations of fraud.
