Cyclists are relatively exposed when out riding on the roads, with little protection from injury. Although most cyclists tend to wear the correct gear, such as a protective helmet and reflective clothing, cycling accidents can sadly cause serious injuries.
Cycling accidents are often caused by vehicle motorists not seeing the cyclist, motorists turning into the path of the cyclist, equipment failures, poorly maintained roads and collisions at junctions or on roundabouts.
Our specialist cycling accident solicitors are experienced in dealing with these accidents and helping our clients claim compensation for a number of injuries from cuts, bruises and broken or fractured bones to more major injuries including brain trauma or spinal injury as well as fatal accidents.
While providing sensitive advice and support, our cycling accident solicitors can also put you in touch with a number of organisations who can help you with everything from rehabilitation to counselling and providing support for your family.
Claiming compensation through the Motor Insurers Bureau
Although it is a legal requirement that vehicle owners ensure they have valid insurance, you may still be able to claim compensation for your cycling accident if you or a loved one were involved in a hit and run incident or injured by an uninsured driver.
The Motor Insurers Bureau was set up to provide compensation to the victims of road traffic accidents in cases where the driver was uninsured or untraceable.
Our personal injury lawyers have experience in dealing with claiming compensation through the Motor Insurers Bureau and can explain the process to you, keeping you up to date with any information throughout the course of your claim.
How do I claim for an injury caused by a cycling accident?
Our specialist personal injury lawyers are experts in dealing with cycling accidents and can talk through your situation with you over the phone, or face to face if you prefer. We can provide you with some initial free advice to help you decide if you wish to proceed with making a claim.
We understand that winning compensation can make things easier with some injuries requiring people to take time off work, travel for treatment or make alternations in their homes. Our dedicated team will do everything they can to ensure your life can return to normal as soon as possible.
No win no fee cycling accident claims
Your cycling accident claim may be eligible for a no win no fee funding agreement, which means:
- If you win your case your opponent will pay the majority of your legal costs. Any legal costs not paid by your opponent and the lawyer’s success fee will be deducted from the compensation that you receive.
- If you lose your case, you won’t pay anything.
How long do I have to make a cycling accident compensation claim?
You usually have three years from the date of the accident or knowing about your injury, to pursue a claim. There are some exceptions, which we can advise you on.
Speak to us as soon as you can, so our personal injury lawyers can start helping you through the process of claiming compensation and getting any other support you need.
How much compensation could I receive from a cycling accident claim?
Every injury is different, so it is important to get expert advice from lawyers who really understand the unique nature of each personal injury claim.
The amount you can claim will depend on a number of factors, such as the severity of your injury, as well as any financial losses you have suffered or lifestyle changes you have made as a result. Our specialist personal injury lawyers have the experience to ensure you get the compensation you deserve.
