Riding a bicycle is a great way to get around and many people are getting back on their bikes to commute to work so they can avoid the huge traffic jams which are an everyday occurrence in many of our towns and cities. Cycling can offer health benefits and is also environmentally sound too.
But one of the risks of cycling is the chance that you will be involved in an accident. If you are unfortunate to be involved in an accident whilst riding your bicycle then you may well have suffered an injury as a result.
If you have been involved in a bicycle accident and you’ve been injured, we do understand how frustrating it is and we can help you to understand if you are able to make a claim for compensation and for the repairs to your bike too.
How do I know if I can make a claim?
There will always be an issue with bicycle accidents about who was at fault. The Highway Code does say that you should take extra care with road users who are more vulnerable than you are. Therefore, a car driver should be taking more care when driving near a cyclist because the cyclist is more vulnerable.
Compensation is paid out when someone has an accident and is injured through the fault of someone else. However, even if the accident was partly your fault, you may still be able to claim compensation.
You should seek advice from a specialist solicitor about your accident so they can help you to understand what your legal position is and to decide if you would like to make a claim for compensation.
