Advice for Bicycle injury compensation claims

As a cyclist, have you been injured in a road traffic accident that wasn’t your fault?

With reported cyclist deaths constantly in the news, it is becoming apparent that cyclists as road users are continually at risk of injury. It’s a frightening thought; and unless more care and attention is taken by cyclists and motorists, injury and death statistics are likely to rise; especially with more cyclists using the roads than ever before.

If, as a cyclist, you’ve been injured in a road traffic accident that wasn’t your fault, then you may be able to claim compensation. If you’ve been unlucky enough to have collided with another road user, whether you’ve sustained broken bones and soft tissue damage, or just a few bruises and grazes, it’s understandable how devastating this type of injury can be. 

Not only can it destroy your independence and mobility, in the short term or permanently, financial losses can be just as devastating given the lack of protection a bike offers when compared to a car.

Injured in an accident as a cyclist. How do I make a claim?

To make a bicycle injury compensation claim, the most important factor is that the other driver has to be at fault. The most common examples when the other person is at fault are drivers pulling out or turning into a junction in to a cyclists path, driving out of a driveway in to a cyclist, or even opening car doors onto cyclists.

Because of this, it’s very unfortunate that most cyclists who have been injured in a road traffic accident don’t usually escape with just a few cuts and bruises. Cyclists often take the full impact of the collision, causing  usually very serious injuries in most circumstances. As a cycling accident is likely to cause significant injury and loss it is important that you make sure you get a fully qualified personal injury solicitor to deal with the claim.

Here at The Injury Lawyers, we have years of experience dealing in bicycle injury compensation claims, meaning that we’re able to get you the maximum amount of compensation that you deserve. Also, because we are personal injury lawyers rather than a claims management company, you get to deal with us direct… Meaning your information doesn’t get passed around and there are no referral fees to deduct from your compensation.

Does compensation include any financial losses suffered due to the accident?

Yes! Because bicycle injury compensation claims are likely to cause significant injury and loss, this is considered when a final settlement is looked at. As it is likely you will have to take time off work because of your accident, and it is understandable that financial loss is likely to become an early problem.

If you need financial support before the case is settled, it is possible to obtain an interim payment from the other side, which is given to cover any financial losses which have occurred early on in the claim process before its fully settled.

Other losses which are included in the final settlement figure include loss of holidays and hobbies, expenses such as medication, care, treatment and travel to and from medical appointments. As we provide private medical treatment early on in the claim process, with the costs being recovered from the other side, with The Injury Lawyers, you can be assured that we can provide an excellent service getting you the best medical attention and highest compensation that you deserve.
