More information

There can be a range of common injuries sustained by cyclists during a road traffic incident, some of which may include:
  • Back, head and neck injuries
  • Broken limbs
  • Internal injuries to the head of the body
  • Paralysis
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder
Most accidents that involve cyclists are caused by the inattention or recklessness of motorists.

If you believe that you might have been partially responsible for the accident, you may still be entitled to seek compensation. Speak to our team today to help you assess your eligibility.
You have 3 years from the date of an accident in which to start a claim for compensation, or 3 years from the date of turning 18 if the accident happened when you were a child.

There are very limited exceptions to this rule, so please contact us to see if you are eligible.
You may be eligible to make a claim for your cycling accident if it was caused by:
  • Back, head and neck injuries
  • Broken limbs
  • Bruising and soft tissue injuries
  • Internal injuries to the head or the body
  • Paralysis
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder
You can claim compensation for any injuries that you have sustained from an accident where someone else was either fully at fault or if you were partially to blame for the accident. Liability can flow both ways and we can explain as to what extent you will be able to claim.

You can claim compensation for any injuries that you have sustained from an accident where someone else was either fully at fault or if you were partially to blame for the accident. Liability can flow both ways and we can explain as to what extent you will be able to claim.

Additionally, you can also claim for any damages to your bicycle or property as part of your injury claim. We know the cost of damaged cycling equipment can add up, so we will be able to explain the potential compensation you are likely to receive.
The amount of compensation that you will receive will depend on the severity of your injuries and your specific circumstances.

To aid in your recovery, you may also be able to claim for physiotherapy costs or other vital rehabilitation needs.

There are two types of damages you may receive; these are split into:
  • General damages: this reflects the pain and suffering experienced, both psychological and/or physical trauma. The amount of compensation will mirror the extent of this pain and suffering.
  • Special damages: are also known as out-of-pocket expenses. They relate to the specific financial expenses paid out in relation to an injury. Special damages also include any loss of earnings due to your accident.
In most matters, damages are settled on outside of court without legal action. A small percentage of matters will require formal legal proceedings.

As your matter progresses, we will explain the process to you if there is a need to attend Court.
It is always preferable to have witnesses to support your case, but it is not unusual for there to be no witnesses. Your case can still succeed on the balance of probabilities.

It all turns on you providing a truthful account of what happened on the day, evidence of injury and any photos, all necessary for us to draft your claim.
If the road conditions were poor and you were injured, then we will look to claim against the local authority. Where there is clear liability from another road user, then we claim against the other party.

A ‘hit and run’ or an accident involving an uninsured driver will usually be processed through the Motor Insurance Bureau. Contact us to find out if you can still make a claim under these circumstances.
