We Will Help Get You Back On The Road
When you’ve suffered injuries as a result of being knocked off your bike, we understand that you’re not just concerned about your injuries. You’re concerned about your bike, equipment, and getting back out on the road.
We know there are different needs and concerns following an accident, so our service is designed to provide so much more than just injury compensation – we can manage every aspect of the claim process tailored to your specific circumstances.
We Will Make Sure Your Bike And Equipment Isn’t Undervalued
Our cycle claims team understand bike brands, parts, and the real value of what you’ve lost, where insurance companies might not. We will make sure your bike and equipment isn’t undervalued and we will never take any fees from the compensation recovered for this.

We can create a bespoke rehabilitation service for you, depending on the nature of your injuries, to help you get back on the road as soon as possible. All the costs of the treatment we arrange for you will be added on to the claim so you won’t be left out of pocket.
A No Win No Fee Guarantee – With A Difference
You need to feel safe in the knowledge that you’re getting the very best legal advice when you choose a law firm to help you with your cycling accident claim.
Our services are offered on a No Win No Fee basis, meaning you are not at any financial risk if your claim is unsuccessful.
Like every firm, we will deduct a fee if your claim is successful. However, we offer reduced fees depending on the specifics of the accident and will never deduct any fees from the compensation you’ll receive for your bike or equipment.
Because of these two significant differences, the compensation payout you receive from us could be thousands of pounds more than with another firm.
See Why You'll Claim More With Us
Unlike many firms, which will take 25% of the total amount of compensation, based on the specifics of your accident, we are happy to discuss our fees.
Apart from making sure your bicycle and equipment aren’t undervalued, we will never take any fees from the compensation recovered. 100% of your compensation can go towards getting a replacement.
Likewise, we don’t think it’s right that firms deduct from this part of the compensation, so we don’t. Combined with our approach to all of our fees, you could claim significantly more with us.
The example below shows how you could claim thousands more with us.
Replaced Item Bott and Co Other Firms Loss Of Earnings (£4,000) £0 £1,000 (25%) Your Bike (£5,000) £0 £1,250 (25%) Helmet & CLothing £0 £125 (25%) Electronic Equipment (Garmin) (£100) £0 £25 (25%) ATE (£140)* £140 £500 Total Deductions £140 £2,900 Total You'll Receive £9,460 £6.700 How Much More You'd Receive With Us £2,760.00
*The £140 deduction for ATE (After the Event Insurance) includes Insurance Premium Tax.
In many cases, we can secure part of your compensation in advance to help with the expenses you have incurred, help you replace the loss of earnings and help to cover medical costs or essential bills.
How Much Compensation Can I Claim For A Cycling Accident?
The amount of compensation you could claim for a cycling accident depends on the circumstances of the accident, the severity of your injuries, how long it may take for you to recover, and the financial impact it may have on your life.
Compensation amounts are calculated by combining the total amount of general damages and special damages you may be able to claim for.
General damages are calculated from guidelines published by The Judicial College, a part of the Ministry of Justice for all types of injuries. The amount of compensation claimable depends on the type and severity of your injury.

Injuries may include
The above figure, known as 'general damages' only relates to the compensation you may be able to claim for your injuries. You may also be able to claim for 'special damages' which includes your out of pocket expenses, medical costs, and loss of earnings. Contact our legal team to discuss the specifics of your accident and how much you might be able to claim.
The amounts listed are based on average settlement figures awarded by Judges at Trial and are intended to ensure a fair settlement is reached.
Please be aware that compensation amounts vary on a case-by-case basis. Therefore, these figures are intended only as a guide for what your claim may be worth.
As part of claiming with us, you will undergo an independent medical assessment. Following this assessment, we will know an accurate amount of compensation we may be able to claim for you.
In addition to general damages, you can claim any out-of-pocket expenses you have incurred because of your accident. These are known as special damages.

Choosing The Right Solicitors
Insurers may want to limit the amount they pay out, but our job is to make sure you receive the maximum possible compensation.
When choosing a solicitor to assist with your claim, in our opinion you should make sure they are fully independent from the insurance company, experience suggests that your interests will not be best served otherwise.
At Bott and Co we take the time that is necessary to conclude your claim. We find insurers on the other hand attempt to settle at the earliest opportunity and prior to all relevant medical evidence being available. We are experienced in this respect and will advise you tactically how to proceed.
We are ranked as the number one law firm in the entire UK for revenue per lawyer and among the most profitable, and we couldn’t achieve this by not securing the highest possible payouts for our clients.
Solicitors Who Cycle
Your case will be managed by one of our experienced, specialist cycling accident solicitors, and overseen by our Legal Manager Tony Tierney, a dedicated cyclist and experienced lawyer of over 25 years, who has recovered millions of pounds in compensation for cyclists and people injured in road accidents.
