Cycling Accidents

The road can be a dangerous place to ride your bicycle, and when cycling accidents happen it can result in both serious injury and a damaged bike that could be costly to replace or repair.

Ramsdens Solicitors can help you make a claim and secure the compensation that you deserve. Our team of solicitors are experts when it comes to bicycle accidents and are available to offer clear and simple advice and support so you receive the compensation you're entitled to.

COMMON CAUSES OF CYCLING ACCIDENTS

Most bicycle injuries are the result of riders being less visible to cars and lorries, and drivers don't always check properly for cyclists.

We have claimed compensation for a number of bicycle accidents, including accidents caused by:

  • Dangerous road surfaces (potholes, raised road surfaces etc)
  • Drivers failing to see cyclists
  • Careless driving, including exceeding the speed limit
  • Drivers under the influence of alcohol or drugs
  • Bicycle faults or repair failure
  • Inclement weather (ice or snow)

WHAT CAN I CLAIM FOR?

If you are unfortunate enough to be involved in an accident that wasn't your fault, cycling injuries can range from minor cuts and bruises to broken bones and hospital treatment. This can cause both physical and psychological problems for the victim, and a lengthy and stressful claims process will only add to this.

As a result of the injuries sustained, there could be financial losses to take into account, including loss of earnings, replacing the bicycle, medical treatment and additional travel costs – if you previously cycled everywhere and now have to take taxis or public transport, the costs can be considerable.
