Bicycle Accident Claim

Bicycle accidents may occur in many different ways but some of the more common are:

When motorists open their car doors without checking whether a cyclist is approaching.

The cyclist falls due to incomplete repairs in the road or uneven road surface.

Vehicles turning left across the path of the cyclist unaware or ignorant of the existence of the cyclist.

Oncoming vehicles turning right blocking the cyclist’s lane ahead.

However your accident may have occurred, unfortunately, it is the cyclist every time who will suffer, often quite seriously. With any Bicycle Accident Claim, I will help you recover compensation for your injuries, repairs to your bicycle or the value of your bicycle if it is a write-off, loss of wages (past and future), the cost of any care you may have required, and any other financial losses you may have or will incur in the future.

 

What should I do if the other driver’s insurers contact me and make an offer?

 

This is happening increasingly where the opposing insurers contact the victim early on encouraging them to settle early and not seek independent legal advice. The danger is that if you settle too early the full extent of your injuries may not be known. You may accept £1,000 or £1,500 now but your injuries could be worth considerably more. There are also headings of claim of which you may be unaware. Once you have settled your claim it is usually not possible to re-open it. If you do not obtain advice, you run the risk of settling your claim for too little.
