Cycling accidents

Whether it's to improve your fitness, boost your bank balance or make an environmental impact, we understand that opting for two wheels over four is a lifestyle choice. The unfortunate downside is that as a cyclist, you're less protected and more exposed than other road users, meaning collisions are more likely to result in serious injury.

What are the most common causes of cycling accidents?

Around two thirds of all serious and fatal cyclist collisions occur near junctions, with a significant 57% as a result of a driver failing to look properly. In many reported cases, drivers have forgotten to check their blind spots or simply don't leave a safe enough gap. When a cyclist is clipped, their lack of protective shell means they can suffer extreme and potentially life-changing injuries as a result.

Why make a claim after being knocked off your bike?

Lives can be changed in seconds, but it takes time, money and ongoing support to rebuild them after a traumatic accident. Though no amount of money can make up for the damages occurring from severe injuries such as spinal injury, head injury and amputation, appropriate compensation may be necessary for you and your family.

Our expert personal injury team can offer free home/hospital visits, rapid results, a personal service with no middlemen and more.

What is the claims process for a road traffic accident?

Claims for bike accident compensation can be made up to three years after the injury occurred. During the initial stages of making a road traffic accident claim, we will provide a free consultation to discuss the circumstances. Following this, we will investigate the extent of the injury and resulting losses.
