bike - Cycle Accident Claims

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.
