Cycle Accident Claims

Cycle accident claims - your legal rights

Cyclists are often the forgotten minority when it comes to road traffic accidents, but cyclists often come off worse than motorists, and sometimes suffer severe and long-term injuries.

We put you, the cyclist, first. We don't think it's right that you should have to lose out if you've been injured in accident caused by someone else.

Cycle accident claims can help compensate you for pain and inconvenience, recover lost earnings after an absence from work, help pay medical costs associated with your injury, and replace or fix your bike and helmet if necessary.

Cycle accident claims can be made for injuries sustained in a variety of accidents;

  • You're struck or knocked off by a vehicle
  • You're hit by the door of a vehicle as you attempt to cycle past it
  • You fall off your bike after hitting a defect in the road surface
  • You collide with a pedestrian and it wasn't your fault
  • You slip or collide with a substance or object that should not be in the road

Protecting yourself when cycling

The best way to avoid cycling injuries is to wear the appropriate health and safety clothing whenever you're riding your bike.

Wearing a helmet, for example, can protect both your head and the majority of your face from bumps, cuts, road rash and long term injury. You should also consider wearing hi-visibility reflective clothing and attaching both front and rear lights to your bicycle to make sure you're as visible as possible when riding, particularly at night time.

Sometimes even the most comprehensive safety gear cannot prevent you having an accident, and that's when we're here to help.

Pete's Story

Pete claimed for compensation following his bicycle accident

John Westwood, Stoke-on-Trent, was awarded £3,000

I was cycling off to work with a friend when a car came straight out of a side road and knocked us both down... I was put onto a good local solicitor and received nearly £3,000 in compensation, which I was more than happy with.
