It is common for most solicitors to make a 25% deduction from the total damages they recover for you. We take a very different approach, please see the table below.
The example below is for a client who is unable to work and experiences a loss of earnings of £4,000, requires a replacement bike of £5,000 and bike equipment and accessories at £600.
|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 (£500)||£0||£125 (25%)|
|Electronic Equipment (Garmin) (£100)||£0||£25 (25%)|
|Total You’ll Receive||£9,544||£6,700|
|How Much More You’d Receive With Us||£2,844.00|
* The £56 deduction for ATE (After the Event Insurance) includes Insurance Premium Tax.

So Much More Than Just Financial Compensation
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 can manage every aspect of the claim process tailored to your specific circumstances.
Cyclists that we speak to are often more concerned about the damage to their bike than the damage to their body – although we’re sure their friends and family don’t necessarily share that view.
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. This includes:
A True Understanding Of The Value Of Your Bike
Your bike may well be worth more than the car that hit you. Many of the cyclists we help have spent thousands on their bicycle and equipment and when a bike is hit by a car, the damage is considerably more extensive to the bike than the car.
Our cycle team understand bike brands, parts, and the real value of what you’ve lost, where insurance companies might not.
We’ve settled claims for bikes worth in excess of £10,000 with several hundreds of pounds of clothing and equipment on top of that. Without our knowledge and experience it can be hard for you to convince the insurers of the true cost of a bike.
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, so you can use 100% of your bike compensation to get a replacement.
Rehabilitation After A Cycle Accident
If you wish, 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.
We can create a bespoke rehabilitation service to help you get back on the road as soon as possible.
This part of our service could include private healthcare to assess and treat the injuries, physiotherapy to help you get back to fitness, and even psychological treatment if you are suffering with PTSD (post traumatic stress disorder) or have any fears about getting back on the bike.
A True Understanding Of Your Accident And Your Claim
You need the best available help to take on the insurance company who may have an interest in settling for the lowest figure they can.
We’re highly experienced in the battle against insurers and represent more than 100,000 individuals each year to successfully recover compensation from a range of companies and insurers.

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.
What Compensation Can I Claim For?
We want to make sure you’re not left out of pocket following a cycle accident so our solicitors will fight on your behalf to recover the maximum amount possible in the shortest time, so you can put it all behind you.
The Judicial College have guidelines on how much compensation you are entitled to depending on the injuries you’ve suffered. This can vary massively, for example a wrist injury can be valued at between £2,300 and £39,300 – so the skill of our solicitors in negotiating the best settlement is vital here.
The Judicial College have guidelines on how much compensation you are entitled to depending on the injuries you’ve suffered.
We can also recover any out of pocket expenses such as travel to medical appointments and healthcare or assistance costs while you are rehabilitating. In extreme cases we’ve recovered in excess of a million pounds to cover on-going care.
Our legal team will also negotiate a settlement for any loss of earnings if the injuries you suffered led to time off work or missed bonuses. The compensation for anything other than the injury is known as special damages and includes:
- Loss of earnings or bonus
- Medical bills
- Travel costs
- Physiotherapy and rehabilitation
- Psychological injuries as a result of an accident (where physical injury is also present)
- Costs for help with household chores
- Care and assistance
- Damage to your bike
- Damage to your property and equipment
It is important that you keep receipts for any out of pocket expenses as we can add these into your claim. We will even arrange for interim payments to you while the case is on-going if you need help covering expenses.
How Much Compensation Can I Claim For A Cycling Accident?
We totally understand when there’s been trauma, pain, impact on personal income or excessive expenses that financial compensation is first and foremost in our minds. This is why one of the most commonly asked question that our customers want to know is how much their claim is worth.
The ‘how much’ question is very difficult to answer until our legal team has been through the details of your accident and injury.
However, we pride ourselves on securing the maximum possible compensation for you and our track record in recovering millions of pounds over more than 25 years of legal practice speaks for itself.
Calculate how much you could claim
The actual final amount we can secure for you depends on a number of circumstances including:
- Medical treatment required
- Ongoing medical treatment needed
- Amount of time off work
- Time off work taken by family to take care of you
- Forced change of job, education
- If you can’t continue your hobbies/interests
- Costs of making adaptations at home and change of vehicle if required
- Cost of bike and equipment repair or replacement
For serious injuries, we also recover compensation to cover additional costs that arise as a result of your accident, including; loss of future earnings, a lifetime of care and treatment, help with chores, medication, state-of-the-art prosthetic limbs and custom built accommodation.
At the end of this guide is a list of some of the more common injuries and the compensation guideline amounts. The figures are taken from the Case Law on general damages in personal injury cases. The total compensation figure can be hugely increased when factoring in the special damages such as loss of earnings, care and assistance and rehabilitation.
How Long Do I Have To Claim?
Claims for cycle accidents are covered under UK limitation laws for this type of compensation case and the current limitation is three years.
This means you have a maximum of three years from the date of the accident, or the date you discovered your injuries were a result of the accident, to make your claim.
If you are very close to the three-year time limit it can be difficult to get the process established in time but give our team a call if you are unsure.
Cycle accidents are covered under UK limitation laws for this type of compensation case and the current limitation is three years.
For children under the age of 18 it is possible to make a claim at any time before their 21st birthday, regardless of when the accident happened. We always recommend starting the process as soon as possible to give you the best chance for success.
If you are claiming on behalf of someone who does not have the mental capacity to make their own claim then there is no specific time limit on this.
When Can I Claim?
If you’ve been knocked off your bike, the chances are you will have a claim. It is unusual for motorists not to be at least partly at fault when they collide with cyclists.
You might also be able to claim if the accident was caused by a pothole or poor road surfaces or if your equipment is defective and causes an accident.
You could claim when:
- Another vehicle is at fault
- Road or cycle lane is in poor condition
- Your equipment is defective
Most Cycle accidents usually involve a motor vehicle such as a car, taxi or HGV vehicle etc. Involving common circumstances such as a vehicle turning across a cyclists path, emerging from a junction or changing lanes on a roundabout.
Accidents often occur at T-junctions and can be down to a failure to look properly by the vehicle driver.
Many accidents are caused by motor vehicles, including busses and lorries. Common circumstances involve lorries failing to leave sufficient room, vehicles emerging from side roads and vehicles turning in front of cyclists.
However, there does not have to be contact with a motor vehicle for you to be able to claim. We have represented a number of cyclists who have had to take evasive action to avoid a collision. The road sometimes looks more appealing than the bonnet of a car.
We are experienced in dealing with what is generally termed as “dooring”, we have recovered significant sums for individuals involved in such incidents. “Dooring” is a term used where an individual in a parked motor vehicle opens their door into the path of a cyclist, having failed to check properly before opening the door.
For accidents caused by potholes and poor road conditions, the local authority have to be able to prove that they have a “sufficient system of inspection” in place at the time of the incident. We are experienced in respect of requesting all relevant records and reviewing the same.
