If you have had a cycling accident, the injuries you sustain can change your life forever. You may not be able to enjoy life like you did before, or work in the same job you once did. The impacts can be devastating.
Often, the only way some people can regain some sort of normality is to make a claim for cycling accident compensation. If you decide to go this route, trust in the experience and passion of our lawyers to guide you through the legal process and put you back in control of your life.
What can I claim cycling accident compensation for?
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)
Our lawyers will be able to give you a really good idea of what can be claimed once they know the ins and outs of your case. Every case is different and there may be things unique to your situation that you can claim for.
Typically, a monetary value is placed on the gap between your life path before the cycling injury, and your life path since.
How to tell if I have a cycling accident claim?
Whether or not you are able to make a claim for compensation following a cycling accident depends on a number of things like the extent of your injuries and the circumstances of the accident. It’s very hard to self-diagnose your ability to make a claim without speaking to a lawyer first.

Speak to one of our lawyers as soon as possible following your accident and they will be able to give you a thorough idea of your rights and ability to make a claim.
