Have you been involved in a cycling accident?

With the increasing number of people taking to their bikes on the roads, solicitors for cyclists are becoming more and more important in cycling accident claims.

If you have had a cycling accident and have had to undergo medical treatment for your injuries, your choice of solicitor to represent you is a crucial decision.  You need a solicitor with comprehensive experience and knowledge of this area of the law.

Ormrods Solicitors & Advocates specialise in acting for people that have been seriously injured and with our personal approach we can give you and your case the attention it needs and deserves.

We are highly experienced at dealing with different types of accidents involving cyclists and rebutting arguments that insurers try to raise in defence of a claim.

We will discuss your cycling accident and quickly establish if you have legal claim and importantly, to what treatment and damages you might be entitled.

Whatever the situation that led to your cycle accident and injury, you may make a claim but this is dependent on two key factors: you must establish that somebody else has been negligent and you need to make your claim within 3 years of the accident happening.

Even if you think that you might be partly to blame for the accident, you might still be able to make a claim.

Common types of accident

  • Collisions with another vehicle
  • Accidents caused by badly maintained roads / pot holes etc
  • Failure of bike or components
  • Uncontrolled animals
  • Accidents involving sports including training events
  • Spillages on the highway
  • Incidents occurring abroad

Types of claim for compensation and/or medical expenses

As a very basic rule of thumb, you can generally claim compensation for losses you have suffered as long as they were incurred because of the accident. However, the losses must be reasonable. Some of the most common types of losses are:

  • Your injury - pain suffering & loss of amenity
  • Loss of earnings
  • Damage to your bike and accessories
  • Medical, dental and rehabilitation treatment
  • Damage to clothing
  • Travel expenses
  • Funding your claim

Ormrods Solicitors & Advocates offer ‘no-win, no-fee’ funding for the personal injury cases we act on and we will explain all the options for you.
