In the event that an accident is not your fault, you may be entitled to compensation as there may be a legal remedy in the form of a Cycling Accident Claim

- In the event of a Personal Injury claim, Hussey Fraser will provide expert and impartial assistance to ensure you receive the justice you deserve.
- Any compensation awarded can help to cover medical expenses as well as loss of earnings from time spent out of work.
