Cycling accidents claims

Cycling accidents claims

We take cases on a no win, no fee basis, so we can easily review your claim for compensation at no cost to you.

Our team of specialist cycling accident claims solicitors are keen cyclists themselves, so they bring specialist expertise to the many cycling accident claims that they work on. For example, these cycling accidents solicitors recently won a £100,000 compensation settlement for a cyclist who was knocked off his bike when the driver of a car failed to see him and pulled out of a side road.

Cyclists are more likely to be killed or to be seriously injured than occupants of a car or truck involved in a crash, yet between 60% and 90% of cycling accidents remain unreported*. Injuries sustained in a cycling crash can cause both physical and financial hardship, so you should always report any cycle accident to the police and get expert advice about whether or not you can make a compensation claim. Whatever type of cyclist you are, leisure, commuter, competitor, mountain biker or pro, we can help you if you are injured as a result of a bike accident which was not your fault.

It is imperative that your cycling claim solicitor is aware of laws about wearing cycling helmets and reflective clothing as well as the requirements for fitting lights and reflectors to your bicycle. Your solicitor also needs to understand safety issues regarding cycling lanes and road designs and must be able to evaluate whether problems with the road surface such as potholes, debris or faulty repairs may have contributed to your bike crash. We have access to qualified professionals who can assist with these technical issues where necessary.

We keep abreast of developments in the cycling world and can advise you on compensation claims if there is a reported defect on your bike which you believe caused or contributed to your accident. With our specialised knowledge about cycling, we can often obtain higher compensation values.

We have dealt with a huge variety of compensation claims for accidents involving cyclists. We have won compensation settlements for cyclists suffering from minor injuries to the most severe and life changing injuries warranting awards into the millions.

Some of team are also members of the Serious Injury team, specialising in getting the best results in cases involving amputation, spinal cord injury, brain injury and clinical negligence. We are also able to offer advice on welfare rights, disability rights and have a head injury support manager who can provide ongoing assistance to make an accident victim's life easier.

Other cycling accident compensation claims we have won or are dealing with at the moment include:

  • a man was cycling along a busy Manchester road when a lorry attempted to turn left onto a side street, cutting across his path and knocking him off his bicycle. The claim was settled inside 9 months without the need for court action. Our client received £10,500
  • compensation for a broken back when a cyclist was knocked off his bike on a roundabout
  • a compensation claim for a cyclist who was not wearing a helmet and suffered a head injury when he was knocked off his bike
  • a compensation claim for injuries and losses after a cyclist was knocked off his bike by a car driver opening his door as he passed
  • a compensation claim for a cyclist who was knocked off his bike when a car driver turned right across his path causing a wrist fracture and cuts
  • a compensation claim for a cyclist who was knocked off his bicycle when he was riding along a pavement and a car driver pulled out of his driveway
