Personal Injury

Cycling Accident

Cyclists are some of the most vulnerable road users in the UK. Cycling accidents can happen as a result of other road users (such as cars or vans) or even poor road conditions such as potholes.

If you have been unfortunate enough to have been involved in a cycling accident, our specialist team can assist you with a possible claim.

Expert Cycling Accident Claims Solicitors

Challenges Faced in Cyclist Claims

Our personal injury team understand the challenges faced in bringing these types of claims and are experienced in overcoming them. These may include allegations of contributory negligence or where it is unclear which defendant is liable for your injuries. It is therefore important that the legal representative has the necessary skills and good knowledge of the law in these areas to allow them to advise you on the likelihood of bringing a successful claim.

Rehabilitation

In accidents where serious injuries have been suffered, it is important to secure access to rehabilitation as soon as possible to increase the chances of a full recovery. Our long-established relationships with rehabilitation providers mean we have the necessary contacts to arrange all important support at an early stage. We are also experienced in securing compensation early on in a case to help fund your rehabilitation throughout the claim.

In addition to physical injuries, many of our clients experience psychological injuries such as travel anxiety or in more serious cases, PTSD. Our team understand the impact this can have on someone’s life; especially where cycling is an important hobby for them. We ensure that these injuries are included in your claim and seek to secure funding for any rehabilitation needs in respect of this.

Maximising Compensation

Unlike some larger firms whose main focus is to get your case settled as quickly as possible, we take the time to research the highest quality experts to examine your injuries and send you for re-evaluations where we deem it necessary. This ensures we are maximising the amount of compensation you receive at the end of the claim. At the same time, we also recognise that these claims can be slow and taxing on clients, particularly those who have had a traumatic experience, and so we do our best to get the claims settled as soon as possible while not compromising on quality.

Speak with our experienced cycling accident claims solicitors today

We do not charge for dealing with initial enquiries even if we do not take the claim on. This way you can be safe in the knowledge that you can receive expert legal advice about your accident without committing to any obligations regarding fees. If we consider that you have a claim which is likely to be successful, then we can offer you a “no win no fee” agreement.

If you would like to discuss a potential accident please contact us on 01273 249200 for a free no obligation discussion. We are happy to visit seriously injured clients at home or in hospital.
