Bike Accident Compensation Claims

We are acutely aware of the injuries faced every day in bicycle accidents and our personal injury solicitors are experts in bike accident compensation claims.
Cycle Accident Injury Claims
In our experience, many cyclists are great at anticipating danger and avoiding obstacles, and may even have learned how to fall in a way that reduces injury – but there are occasions when even the best cyclists are injured. However, a cyclist is seen as a vulnerable road user regardless of how experienced a rider they are. The law therefore favours those who find themselves in such situations particularly as they are more exposed to potential injury from drivers and notorious blind spots on their cars, vans or lorries.
Injuries through bicycle accidents can happen:
- If the bike or a component has failed
- With negligent motorists, lorries and motorcyclists
- When people open vehicle doors without looking
- When hitting potholes, raised drain covers or unfinished road works
- Through skidding on spilt fuel or mud on the road
- If animals run into the road.
