Cycling Injury Compensation
Bike riders are potentially the most vulnerable users on our roads today. Being smaller and less visible than other vehicles is a dangerous element of cycling, with driver error or simple lack of awareness being another. If you have received an injury in a bicycle accident that was not your fault, The Compensation Experts can help.
We work closely with personal injury solicitors who have vast experience in obtaining compensation cyclists need to access the best medical support and treatment for their rehabilitation.
What is a Bicycle Accident Claim?
You may be entitled to claim compensation for a bicycle injury if you were not responsible for your accident or if you were only partially at fault. Injuries people can claim for include:
- Fractures, sprains and dislocation
- Neck and spinal damage
- Lacerations and soft tissue damage
- Fatal injuries
In addition to these damages, you may also be able to claim financial compensation to cover the cost of individual expenses such as:
- Repair or replacement of your bicycle and clothing
- Additional travel expenses due to being unable to cycle, or travel costs to and from medical appointments
- Reasonable costs of private medical treatment
- Loss of income from being unable to work due to your injuries
A good example of a typical bicycle accident claim was a woman who was struck by a car when it was turning left. The cyclist was knocked off her bike and suffered life-altering injuries. The driver was found to be at fault for making the illegal manoeuvre. They had not seen the cyclist despite her wearing bright clothing, and their lapse of concentration had devastating consequences for the cyclist and her family.
Compensation Claims for Bicycle Accidents
Even though you are the injured party, because you are making a claim the onus is on you to prove it’s validity- that is, that you have genuinely been injured due to another person’s negligence or mistake.
During your free, no-obligation consultation with The Compensation Experts, we will talk through the circumstances around your accident to determine whether your claim is likely to be agreed. If so, and if you decide claiming compensation is the best course of action for you, we will put you in contact with an experienced personal injury solicitor who will build the case for compensation and negotiate the claim on your behalf.
The type of evidence they will seek to support your claim will include:
- Your medical records detailing the nature and extent of your injury
- A report from an independent medical expert confirming the above, and detailing your likely prognosis
- The police report from your accident
- Statements from any witnesses
- Photos of the conditions at the location of your accident
