If you have sustained a cycling accident and suffered injury as a result, you may be able to claim for things like: 

  • Medical and hospital expenses 

  • Loss of earnings 

  • Pain and suffering 

  • Help you have needed at home (paid or unpaid)

How much compensation am I entitled to from a cycling accident claim?

How much compensation you are entitled to depends on a range of factors unique to your situation. 

These factors include: 

  • Your age 

  • How bad your injuries are 

  • How much you have, or will lose in wages 

  • How much care you will need 

  • How much you have paid out of your own pocket 

Once our lawyers know the ins and outs of your case, they should be able to give you a good indication of what to expect, but it’s important we know the full scope of your injuries and the effect they will have on your life first.

Who pays me the cycling accident claim?

It’s common misconception that the person at fault will be the ones that end up paying you the compensation you deserve. 

Typically, it’s the insurance company of the person at fault that will pay you the compensation rather than the individual themselves.
