Can I make a Claim for a Bicycle Accident?

If another person was at fault for your accident, then you'll be entitled to claim for your bicycle accident injuries and other losses, just the same as in the case of any other road traffic accident.

Cycling accidents can involve serious injuries so it's important that you work with independent and specialist personal injury solicitors to ensure you receive the full amount of cycling accident compensation you are entitled to. When dealing with your claim, we will be dedicated to ensuring all your recovery needs are addressed and that you receive compensation for all losses incurred.

Can a Cyclist claim against a Car Driver?

Yes, cyclists are just like any other road user and if an accident occurs due to the negligence of another driver, they can make a claim for compensation. This is regardless of whether the at fault driver was in a car, van, heavy goods vehicle (HGV) or motorcycle.

In accidents that involve larger vehicles (such as buses), the driver may not have even been aware that they have collided with a cyclist and as such don't stop to exchange insurance details. In these cases or in the case of a 'hit and run', we may be able to trace a driver from their vehicle details or even pursue an untraced driver compensation claim through the Motor Insurers' Bureau (MIB).

Financial losses following a Cycling Accident

As well as having to deal with the physical trauma following a cycling accident, there will also be financial losses to consider. When making a bike accident claim on your behalf we take all financial losses into consideration, including:

  • The cost of specialist medical treatment and physiotherapy
  • Loss of earnings if you have had to take time off work
  • Additional travel costs such as public transport or taxis rather than cycling
  • The cost of repairing or replacing your bicycle
  • Replacement of your bike helmet, clothing and other cycling equipment

How to make a bike accident claim

Ensure that you make a note of all the accident circumstances including the location, exact time, details of the person at fault and any witnesses. If you were also wearing a helmet camera, make sure a copy of the footage is taken and stored in a safe place.
