Whether you are cycling for exercise, competing in a race or using a bike to travel to work, you expect cycle lanes, cycling paths and routes to be safe.
Unfortunately, cyclists are some of the most vulnerable individuals on the roads in the UK. In 2014, over 21,000 serious cycling incidents were recorded.
Cyclist accidents often occur through collisions that can result in serious and long-lasting injuries. Surprisingly, it is estimated that almost a third of cycling accidents went unreported in the UK (2014). If you have been involved in a cyclist accident which resulted in an injury to you which was not your fault, you can seek compensation.
If you have sustained an injury following a cycling accident, you may be able to make a claim for compensation if;
• Another road user's actions caused the incident
• The road or cycle lane was in a poor and defective condition
• Your injury was due to bicycle failure
If the cause of the accident is not listed above, it may still be possible to make a personal injury claim. Our experienced team will guide you through your options and will advise on the prospects of your case.
Sustaining an injury can impact on your day-to-day life. We understand that after an injury you want life to get back to normal as quickly as possible which is why our approach ensures that your case is dealt with efficiently, and by an expert personal injury solicitor not a claims handler.
Our focus is to ensure a stress-free process for you throughout your case with the best possible outcome to ensure you get back on track as quickly as possible.
