What is a cycling claim?
A cycling accident claim is pursued by a cyclist who has been injured due to the fault of another road user. In other words, it's about someone being injured in a bike crash caused by another person, whether it be a motorist, pedestrian or even other cyclists.
What to do if you have been involved in bike accident
Your bike accident claim could be against the other person, their bike insurer (if they are a cyclist too) or even your own bike insurer. This will depend on who was to blame for your bike accident and how much damage has actually occurred. It's important that you speak with one of our expert cycling lawyers as soon as possible after any cycling/bike accident so that we can begin building your case quickly and ensure all evidence is gathered before it becomes stale. The sooner you act after an bike accident,the better chance of getting the right result for you.

Frequently Asked Questions
Can a cyclist claim against a motorist?
Yes, a cyclist can claim against a motorist when the accident is the vehicle driver’s fault. Motorists are legally obliged to have insurance, and it’s from this policy that the injured cyclist can often claim compensation both for injury and additional costs. However, in many cases, the cyclist involved will hold some responsibility for the accident, depending on the difficulty in establishing the motorist’s liability.
How much compensation can I claim for a cycling accident?
The amount of compensation you’re entitled to receive following a cycling accident depends on how serious your injuries are. Bear in mind that you may be able to claim the cost of damages to your bike, equipment, medical expenses, travel expenses and loss of hearing too.
There is no set amount, but once we know of the full circumstances of your accident our specialist cycling accident solicitors will be able to estimate an amount you could receive.
How long does it take to get compensation after a bicycle accident?
This depends on a variety of factors:
- Who was responsible for your injury?
- Whether the person responsible accepts responsibility
- The severity of your injuries
Usually, most claims can be resolved in a matter of months, especially if the settlement is made out of court. However, there is no set period for a claim to be resolved.
