SOLVING PERSONAL LEGAL MATTERS

together

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.

Common Types of Cycling Accident Claims

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.

When can you make a Cycling Accident Claim?

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.
