Bicycle accident compensation claims

Here's our guide for making a no win no fee compensation claim if you’ve been injured in a bike accident that was someone else’s fault.

How to claim after a bicycle accident?

Cyclists are particularly vulnerable on the road and cycling injuries, even in a low-speed incident, can be serious. We understand that a bike accident can be really traumatic and you may be shaken up as well as hurt.

We believe that if you’ve been injured in a cycling accident as a result of somebody else’s negligence, then the least you deserve is an apology and cycling accident compensation to help cover the costs of your recovery.

When you’re feeling up to it, the first step towards making a bike accident claim is to get good advice. Talk to us first: you’ll be able to explain your experience in a confidential and friendly environment to one of personal injury advisors. We’ll be able to work out if you may be eligible to make a bike injury claim.

If your bicycle accident happened in the last three years and wasn’t your fault, then there’s a good chance we’ll be able to help you. You may be eligible to make a claim for your cycling accident if it was caused by:

  • Another vehicle at fault
  • Defective equipment, such as a faulty crash helmet or a safety issue with the way your bicycle was manufactured
  • Roads or cycle lanes in a poor condition, for example potholes or cracks in the tarmac.

Call us on 844 550 0122 for free, helpful advice with no obligation to claim. You can call us for a chat or arrange for us to call you back at a convenient time. We’ll always be happy to help.

We understand that it can sometimes be difficult to tell whether or not the accident was your fault. But if you’re at all unsure, the best thing to do is to speak to us. You can also find out more information about whether you might be eligible to make a claim.

It's hard to say how much you might receive in a successful bike injury compensation claim until your cycle accident solicitors have investigated the details and started negotiations with the other side's insurer.

The amount depends on the accident circumstances, the severity of your cycling accident injuries, the time it takes to recover and whether you've lost income or incurred other financial expenses. Your bicycle injury lawyer will value your claim carefully based on these criteria and inform you of the potential payout.

Cyclists are vulnerable to injury in a bike accident. Today, helmets offer some protection but head and brain injuries are still common.

Common cycling injuries that people make claims for include:

  • Joint dislocation or fracture
  • Muscular strains and other soft tissue injuries
  • Neck or spinal injury
  • Cuts, scrapes and bruises, including deep scrapes - called road rash - if the cyclist is thrown from the bike.
  • Broken bones

The psychological effects of a cycling accident

When people think of making an accident claim with us, they often think about how compensation can help with their physical injuries. However, the psychological impact of your accident will also be considered when putting together your case.

For example, if you feel traumatised by the thought of cycling since your accident, this will be taken into account and you could receive compensation to cover the psychological discomfort and stress you've experienced.

As with motorcycle accidents, the carelessness of other road users is regularly to blame in a bike accident. In particular are circumstances where a car or lorry turns left without seeing the cyclist and hits them. This type of cycle accident can result in serious injury even though it usually takes place at low speed.

Other causes include:

  • Riding too fast for the conditions or too close to other road users.
  • Collisions with pedestrians.
  • Collisions with other road users at junctions or traffic lights.

Our No Win No Fee Guarantee

No win no fee arrangements take the risk out of making a claim, because you don’t pay anything if you lose your case.

Your solicitor may need to take out special legal protection insurance for you, which pays the costs if your claim fails, and ensures claiming is risk free. The cost of this is only taken if you win your case. You’ll never have to pay anything upfront and there are no hidden charges, so you’ll never be out of pocket.
