Bicycle Accident Compensation Claims

There are now more bicycles on the road than ever before, whether it be commuters or recreational cyclists. It is an unfortunate fact that cyclists are far more vulnerable than the average road user. Cyclists have little protection against injury should they be involved in an accident. We understand that even the most minor accident can cause injury to a cyclist and damage to their property.

Our solicitors understand the serious nature of injuries arising from bicycle accidents and all the ways in which you should be compensated. If you have been injured in a cycling accident in the last three years you could claim compensation for any injuries you have suffered.

How much compensation could I claim?

How much compensation you could claim for your cycling accident will be dependent on the exact circumstances of your accident and the extent of your injuries. The compensation you may be awarded is separated into two categories: general damages and special damages.

General damages are awarded for pain, suffering and loss of amenity resulting from your accident. The amount of general damages awarded will depend on the severity of your injury, the recovery time of your injury and any lasting impact the injury has had on your life.

Special damages are awarded to compensate you for any financial loss suffered as a result of your injury. After a bicycle accident, you may be awarded special damages for things such as:

  • Cost of repairing or replacing your bicycle
  • Increased travel costs
  • Loss of earnings if you need to take time off from work
  • Cost of care
  • Any other expenses incurred as a result of your injury

Making a Bicycle Accident Claim

In order to support you claim your solicitor will need to gather evidence of your loss. Your solicitor will be able to advise you of what is required to secure the maximum compensation for your loss. They will ask you a number of questions about your accident so that they can gain a full picture of the evidence required to support your claims.

We are able to assist in all aspects of your bicycle accident claim including:-

  • Personal injury;
  • The cost of repair or replacing your bicycle, clothing and accessories;
  • Rehabilitation – we can arrange physiotherapy or other treatment to assist in your recovery at no cost to you;
  • Travel costs;
  • Loss of earnings; and
  • Inconvenience / out of pocket expenses.

Were you partially responsible?

Even if you are partially responsible for the accident, you may still be entitled to some compensation from the other party’s insurer. The compensation you can claim will be altered to reflect your level of liability. However, you should still make a compensation claim.
