The most common pedal cycle accidents are those involving other road users and poorly maintained roads.
The courts expect drivers to be aware of the presence of cyclists because of the likelihood of potentially serious injuries arising from a car hitting them.
Cyclists using public highways are owed a duty of care by drivers and other road users.
If you’ve been involved in an accident on a bike and it was not your fault, you may be entitled to make a claim for compensation. We can also pursue a claim if your child has been injured in an accident on their bicycle.
What can I claim?
You may be able to claim:
- General damages: these cover physical pain and suffering, but can also include emotional pain such as depression which is a result of the injury.
- Special damages: these cover things such as loss of earnings and out of pocket expenses, including medical expenses.
The amount of compensation you’ll win will depend on the severity of your injuries and the extent of your losses.
