Cycle Accident Claims

If you have suffered personal injury following a cycling accident, then you may be entitled to compensation.

Compensation for a cycling accident

Poole Alcock have a number of keen cyclists who commute to work and enjoy cycling as a hobby or as a competitive sport. We therefore understand the frustration that can occur following a cycling accident.

‘As cyclists ourselves we are aware of the frustrations that occur after suffering an accident, not least because of the pain and suffering it causes but also because of the damage to a beloved bike which as cyclists is often a first concern. At Poole Alcock, we will fight just as much for the true value of your bike and accessories as well as your injuries.

If you would like a free consultation to discuss your asbestos claim, please complete the contact form below or call us for free on 0800 389 7093.

What is the process of making a claim?

You provide instructions for Poole Alcock to act on your behalf

We will launch the claim at the Defendant and use our experience when legal arguments arise to overcome them

We will fight for the best possible outcome for you

If you have suffered personal injury following a cycling accident, then you may be entitled to compensation if the accident was caused by:

Other road users

Potholes on the road

Poorly designed cycle lanes

A faulty bike

We are able to help with the following:

investigating liability, including interviewing witnesses

rehabilitation

compensation for the immediate injuries suffered, taking into account any long-term symptoms.

recovering compensation to reflect the damage to your bike and accessories

any other financial loss associated with the accident e.g loss of earnings

Is There a Time Limit?

Court proceedings must normally be commenced within 3 years of the date of your accident.

If court proceedings are not commenced within the 3 year period then your claim will be out of time. Although a court does have the discretion to allow court proceedings to be commenced and to continue after the 3 year period has expired this must not, and cannot, be relied on.

The 3 year period is different if, for example, the person injured was under 18 years of age at the time of their injury. In this case the 3 year period does not commence until their 18th birthday.

In addition to compensation for your injuries, we can help you to recover all expenses reasonably incurred and caused by the accident such as:

  • replacement cycling helmet
  • damaged clothing
  • repairs to bike or replacement
  • cancellation costs of race entry/holiday
  • travel expenses to and from medical appointments
  • pain relief costs/prescription charges
  • loss of earnings
  • medical treatment costs.

As cyclists, we understand that one of your priorities will be to recover quickly; therefore we can put you in touch with a medical expert local to you to help get you back on your bike as quickly as possible.
