Irwin Mitchell Services for you – call our dedicated Blue Light Cycling Club Helpline – 0333 0100074*
We hold a market leading position in the high value complex personal injury market because we put our clients first. We have a vast experience of dealing with cycling claims, supporting our clients and their families in rebuilding their lives after live changing incidents.
We are one of the few law firms in the country that has a dedicated road traffic accident investigation team, including former police investigators. They help our lawyers gather evidence from the very outset of your claim, ensuring that your case is as strong as possible.
You’ll be given all of the support you need by our friendly team throughout your claim. We are committed to accessing rehabilitation services as quickly as possible to ensure that our clients make the best possible recovery. We also have our in-house Support and Rehabilitation Service team who are here to help you and your family adjust to life after a serious injury, by working with health care professionals to get access to the rehabilitation you need.
We may signpost you to another legal services provider if the likely value of your claim is considered to be less than £10,000, which is then deemed to be a ‘fast track claim’. This is because these types of claims must be started in the Ministry of Justice portal and the procedure to be followed is entirely different to the one used for more substantial claims. It is however crucial not to make any assumptions about the potential value of your claim without first seeking legal advice. We can advise you of the best way to proceed during your free initial consultation.
