Our proven record of success can help your cycling accident compensation claim

The solicitors in our department have over 250 years experience and will be by your side to guide you through the process.

The majority of our expert cycling solicitors regularly commute on their bikes, ride in sportives all over the country and complete long distance charity rides. We will speak your language and are well placed to understand the impact of your accident from a physical, psychological and financial perspective.

We will investigate your cycling accident compensation claim and endeavour to see that you are adequately compensated for your injuries and financial losses. Our role in your claim goes further than this though and often sees us advising on part payments for the cost of repairing or replacing your bike, assessing your immediate needs and arranging private medical treatment, and supporting you in returning to cycling wherever possible.

The common causes of the accidents we deal with vary from collisions with motor vehicles, to defective road surfaces and faulty equipment. We will be happy to discuss your enquiry on a free of charge basis initially to help you decide whether to proceed with your cycling accident claim.

If you have been injured whilst riding your bicycle in the last three years, you may have a valid claim for compensation. The most common causes of accidents are: motor vehicle collisions, defects in the road and faulty equipment. The most important thing you can do is get in touch if you would like some free of charge initial advice.

The time it takes to settle a claim varies greatly. It generally depends on 1) whether liability is disputed and 2) on the complexity of your injuries. We are experienced in obtaining interim payments for bike costs and to help while you’re recuperating. We can guide you on the likely timescale for concluding your claim when we hear about your accident.

As well as compensation for your physical and psychological injuries, you are also entitled to the financial losses and expenses incurred as a direct result of the accident. Examples include: 1) your bicycle, clothing and kit, 2) loss of earnings, overtime or bonus, 3) private medical expenses, 4) transport costs, 5) care, support and assistance and 6) future costs. We can discuss the losses with you in more detail at the beginning of your case. It is important to try and keep a record along with your receipts and photographs.

There are a number of funding options available. In the absence of a better method of funding from your point of view, we are happy to consider representing you on a Conditional Fee Agreement (“no win, no fee” basis). This is something we can discuss in much more detail when you get in touch to talk about your accident.

If your claim was settled within the last six years and you feel you have been let down by your previous legal team, we would be happy to speak to you. Also, if you are unhappy with your current legal representation, we may be able to help as we regularly take over the conduct of claims from other firms of solicitors. We would be happy to discuss this over the phone or via email.
