The Bicycle Accident Compensation Experts
When it comes to bicycle accident compensation, we’re not shy to admit that we know our stuff.
This is because we are aware that if you have been injured in a cycling accident, your life may change in unexpected ways; and you may believe that you’re powerless to do anything about it. Bike riders have the same rights to compensation as any other road users. While it may be a small step back to normality, making a claim could help you to combat the impact that a road injury has on your life.
Our team consists of dedicated compensation and personal injury law specialists who will go that extra mile to ensure that you understand your rights and receive the compensation that you are entitled to.
Starting with a no-obligation consultation, our team will look into more than just your accident – they will learn about you and how your life has been impacted. With this information they can work towards building a case and securing the best possible outcome.
Compensation for a Bike Accident – Am I Eligible?
After you have been involved in a collision or other accident, compensation might be the last thing on your mind, but it’s important to determine your entitlements. Every case is unique and will depend on your circumstances – such as the nature of your injuries – so it’s important to speak to a legal expert. We are compensation specialists who are committed to your case, and we can work quickly to ensure that it commences and is resolved within the legal time limits.
To give you an example, you may be eligible for compensation after the following bicycle injuries:
- Injuries caused by a motor vehicle – whether it’s an opening door, a collision in a bike lane, or another on-road collision
- If you lose control after riding over a pothole or another road defect
- Bicycle accidents that result in medical expenses, loss of earnings, or other suffering

Bike Accident Compensation Case Studies
Our client was an elite athlete and was training for triathlons.
During a bicycle training session, when she and a group of other riders were riding in the breakdown lane of the M4 a truck veered into the breakdown lane and struck a number of the cyclists, including our client. Our client’s coach and mentor tragically was killed in the accident.
Our client suffered a number of orthopaedic injuries. However her main injury was a mild insult to her brain, which has affected her memory, concentration and ability to learn. She has also suffered adverse psychological consequences because of the trauma.
The insurer admitted liability. After settlement negotiations with the insurer our client’s claim was settled for a significant sum.
