Many of our Solicitors are cyclists and enjoy cycling as a great way to travel and to keep fit, but also know that bicycle accidents can result in serious personal injuries. The vast majority of cycling accident claims that we deal with involve a vehicle being driven negligently.
Cycling accidents can occur in a variety of ways, for example, a car coming out of a side road, turning left (or right) into the cyclist, opening a car door, failing to give the cyclist enough room when overtaking and simply failing to stop.
Whatever the circumstances are in a cycling accident the responsibility is on the driver of the vehicle to look out for cyclists, after all a one tonne metal box is always going to win in a crash with a cyclist! Cyclists can also help themselves by wearing bright clothes and having lights on at night.
If a car (or any other type of motor vehicle) has negligently knocked you off your bike then it is likely that you will be able to claim compensation for the injuries you have suffered and for the damage to your bike and clothes.
A compensation claim is put to the insurance company of the car for the personal injury and the losses. For the injury part of the claim there will have to be an independent medical report. For other losses evidence will be required so if you are unfortunate enough to have an accident keep all the receipts of expenses you have incurred. A bike shop can also advise if your bike is roadworthy or not.
Once the medical report and all the expenses evidence are put together, our No Win No Fee Solicitors can then put the claim to the insurers to negotiate compensation for the accident on your behalf.

I have found all the staff and the solicitors that I have seen have been very kind, thoughtful and very helpful. I cannot praise them enough and I would not go to anyone else at all.
Easy, regular and relevant communications both written and orally.
The entire process from my claim being taken was dealt with in a highly professional and more importantly timely manner.
I have used Forbes when pursuing a claim for a friend, along with every other legal matter I have been involved in, both personally and professionally. I cannot rate Forbes highly enough.
My Solicitor always returned my calls promptly and set my mind at rest about all of my concerns. Thank you!
I was extremely happy with David Mayor. Absolutely excellent in every way. Thank you.

Robin Bower and his secretary were very easy to talk to and always friendly.
John was fantastic through the whole process giving clear, sound advice.
I was very pleased with the outcome and would recommend Forbes Solicitors to anyone in the future.
The legal process can be difficult, complicated and very testing. I was involved in a contested claim against 2 Defendants and Leonie helped me through every step of the way through to trial.
I am happy with the way things progressed, the service was professional, quick, and my solicitor Leonie Millard was very approachable and explained things well.
I approached John Myles when I was at rock bottom and felt that I had exhausted every possibility of proving my case.
The service I received far exceeded my expectations.
As a person who is unaware of the law, I never felt at anytime overwhelmed, as your dealings with me were clear and professional. This has been very much appreciated.
