Accident Assistance and Legal Support
In the majority of cycling accidents that occur, members sustain personal injury (damage to themselves, their bicycle or other property) through no fault of their own. In most cases, incidents arise through the negligence of the driver of a motor vehicle; a small number involve defects to the public highway and in occasional cases accidents are caused by other cyclists. In these circumstances a 3rd party is at fault.
London Clarion Cycle Club has entered in to a partnership with Smooth Law Ltd who provide its members with free Legal Assistance to pursue such personal injury claims against at fault parties.
In the event that a claim is successful, Smooth Law Ltd, like other legal practices will take a success fee which for members and families is reduced from the standard 25% to 15%. That said, in circumstances where they recover all their fees or for monies they receive which are to replace or repair a members bicycle, a success fee will not be taken.
Smooth Law Ltd are a specialist, personal injury solicitor. They will use their experience to assess claims and where they think good grounds exist, will undertake the claim for compensation on members behalf on a ‘no win, no fee’ basis. In addition, they have kindly agreed to extend this offer to members’ families.
Smooth Law will provide Help / Support Line through their dedicated Clarion Freephone number on 0800 470 1174. This will operate on weekdays, 9.00 am – 8.00pm (except on public holidays).
