Bicycle Accident & Injury Claims

Every day more than 2 million cyclists in the UK take to the road, including members of The Claims Partnership team. On average, one cyclist loses their life every three days and 25 people are seriously injured. In total, there are an average of 20,000 casualties, injured in cycling accidents, every year in the UK.

Cycling should be a safe and healthy activity, but cycling accident claims frequently present some of the most difficult and distressing cases that The Claims Partnership have to deal with.

At The Claims Partnership, we do not just investigate the physical injuries that you suffer, but are aware that the psychological aspect of the accident is sometimes much worse than the physical pain. Often, victims of cycle accidents frequently never return to riding a bike and avoid the road where the accident happened, suffering from nightmares and requiring counselling. At The Claims Partnership, we routinely have our clients assessed by a Psychiatrist to investigate this aspect of their injuries and claim cyclist compensation, as well as arranging for counselling or other therapy.

Common Causes of Cycling Accidents

Bike accidents are often caused by inattentive drivers who:

  1. Do not look out for or see the cyclist
  2. Underestimate the speed of a cyclist
  3. Presume that because a cyclist is more vulnerable, that they should give up their right of way.
  4. Drive out of driveways or parking bays without looking
  5. Turn without looking
  6. Drive whilst impaired by drugs or alcohol

What to do After a Cycling Accident

If you are unfortunate enough to be involved in a cycling accident that wasn’t your fault and need to make a bike accident claim, follow these five steps immediately after your cycling accident:

  1. Obtain driver and witness details: Be sure to get this information, even if the police have attended the accident scene.
  2. Document what happened: Take photographs of the accident scene and vehicles (including your bike) and, as soon as you are able, write down everything you can remember about the accident.
  3. Secure the evidence: Do not replace your helmet or get your bike repaired immediately. If you have to do so, take photographs of the damage to your bicycle and ensure the repairer is willing to prepare a report listing the damage to the vehicle and the cost of repair.
  4. Report the accident to the police: You should do this at the time of the accident, even if you think you may not be seriously injured at the time. The effects of bicycle accidents sometimes do not become apparent for an hour or two.
  5. Refuse to deal directly with the driver’s insurance company: Frequently, the guilty driver’s insurance company will contact you to offer you money to stop the cycle claim. Insurance companies will only do this where they know that their driver is responsible and will only offer a fraction of the true value of your claim. You should always speak to an independent solicitor before dealing with a guilty driver’s insurance company.

Cycling Accident Statistics

  • 80% of all injured cyclists and 88% of those cyclists fatalities are male.
  • 20% of injured cyclists are under the age of 15.
  • 69% of cycling accidents happen in urban areas.
  • 37% of cycle accidents occur between 4 pm and midnight.

In more than 40% of cycle accidents that result in death, alcohol was reported to be involved, but not always above the drink drive threshold.

What Types of Bicycle Accident Claims Are There?

When you’re involved in a bicycle accident, various types of claims may arise to address different aspects of the incident. At The Claims Partnership, we specialise in handling a wide range of bicycle accident claims to ensure our clients receive the compensation they deserve.

Personal Injury Claims
Personal injury claims are the most common type of bicycle accident claim. These claims seek compensation for injuries sustained by the cyclist due to the negligence or fault of another party, such as a motorist or property owner. Our experienced solicitors work diligently to gather evidence, assess medical records, and negotiate with insurance companies to secure maximum compensation for our clients’ injuries.

Property Damage Claims
In addition to personal injuries, bicycle accidents can also result in damage to property, including bicycles, clothing, and other belongings. Property damage claims seek compensation for the cost of repairing or replacing damaged items.

Loss of Earnings Claims
Bicycle accidents can lead to temporary or permanent disabilities that prevent cyclists from working and earning income. Loss of earnings claims aim to compensate cyclists for the wages they lose as a result of their injuries. We work closely with our clients and their employers to gather evidence of lost income – including pay stubs, employment contracts, and medical records – to support their claims for compensation.

Emotional Distress Claims
Beyond physical injuries, bicycle accidents can also cause significant emotional distress. At the Claims Partnership, we understand the effects of emotional distress and work tirelessly to ensure our clients receive the support and compensation they need to cope with their trauma.

What Compensation Could I Get For a Bicycle Accident?

If you’ve been involved in a bicycle accident, there are a few types of compensation that you may be entitled to to help you recover from your injuries and losses.

  1. Medical expenses: Bicycle accidents can result in serious injuries that require extensive medical treatment, including surgeries, rehab and ongoing therapy. Compensation for medical expenses covers the costs of all necessary medical care that’s related to the accident, ensuring that you receive the treatment you need to recover fully.
  2. Lost wages: If you’re unable to work due to your injuries from a bicycle accident, you may be entitled to compensation for lost wages. This includes both the wages you’ve already lost while recovering and any future income that you’ll miss out on due to your injuries.
  3. Property Damage: If your bicycle or other personal property was damaged in the accident, you may be entitled to compensation for the cost of repairing or replacing the damaged items. This can include the cost of repairing your bicycle, replacing damaged clothing or gear, or any other property damaged in the accident.

At The Claims Partnership, we understand the importance of securing full and fair compensation for our clients, and we’re dedicated to maximising their claims through skilled legal representation.

By seeking legal representation from our experienced bicycle accident solicitors, you can feel confident that you’ll receive the maximum compensation available for your injuries and losses. We’ll advocate on your behalf, negotiate with insurance companies, and fight for your rights to ensure that you receive the full and fair compensation you deserve for your bicycle accident claim.
