Bicycle accident claims
British roads know many dangers for cyclists. Lack of cycle lanes, poor road surfaces with deep potholes, on-road parking and unaware drivers all add to these dangers, allowing the number of serious cycle accidents to be on the rise. If you have been hit by a car, had a bad fall after hitting a pothole or were in another way the victim of a traffic accident, let us know.
With our specialist cyclist injury solicitors by your side, claiming compensation for your injuries will be straight-forward. We will handle your bicycle accident claim on a no win, no fee basis, so if you don’t win, we won’t take anything from you.Get in touch
Experienced personal injury solicitors
By making a bicycle accident claim with us you will have the backing of an experienced team of personal injury solicitors. We have a long history of securing the compensation that our clients deserve.
There are several different types of bicycle accident claims. Outlined here are the type of claims you can make, what compensation you might receive and why we are the right team to get you justice.
Types of bicycle accident claims
As a cyclist, you are very aware of the surrounding vehicles. Regrettably, other road users are not always as aware of you. Even when you are wearing reflective or fluorescent clothing and bicycle lights in-line with the law, drivers may still overlook you.
Generally, the kind of bicycle accident claims we’ve submitted in the past are as a result of one of the following:
- A collision between vehicles and bicycles, both in motion
- A cyclist clipped by a vehicle, destabilising them and causing a fall
- Car doors opened without looking, into a cyclist
- Potholes and poor road maintenance
What will compensation for a cycling accident cover?
Choosing to cycle shouldn’t mean risking your life but a bicycle accident can have life-altering consequences.
Cycling accident compensation can’t turn back the clock on your accident, but it can help you move on.
With that in mind, the compensation you receive for your bicycle accident will take into account:
- The extent of your physical injuries
- Loss of earnings and future earnings
- Cost of care and medication
- Bike repairs or replacement
- Damage to clothing, accessories and property such as a laptop, phone, tablet
- Travel and accommodation costs
- Any adaptions that need to be made to your home or transport
Making a cyclist compensation claim with us is the first step to achieving justice and a chance to rebuild your life as fully as possible.
Compensation for emotional trauma
Accidents while cycling can cause a wide range of injuries, from broken bones and internal bleeding, to sprains, cuts and bruises.
However, the psychological trauma can be equally – if not more – damaging. This is why the amount of compensation you are entitled to as a victim of a bicycle accident allows for emotional impacts too.

Our no-win, no-fee solicitors in Manchester regularly assess the prospects of winning your case at all stages of your claim.
If we are able to offer you a Conditional Fee Agreement for your claim, you will not have to pay our legal costs, however, if you lose your claim you may have to pay your opponent’s legal costs.
Legal expenses insurance, which is often provided with some motor insurance policies, can be used to pay your opponent’s legal fees. To protect you, we take out a legal expenses insurance policy for you when taking on your no-win, no-fee claim, if you do not already have a policy.
Disbursements for legal costs
If you win, your opponent will pay the majority of your legal costs and disbursements.
Any legal costs which are not paid by your opponent may be deducted from your compensation. However, you will not pay anything if your claim is unsuccessful and not until it has come to the end.
