When Can I Claim For A Cycling Accident?

If you’ve been involved in an accident on your bike when someone else was either partly or fully at fault, there is a good chance you will be able to claim compensation. This is because, in many cycling accidents involving cars, it is rare for motorists not to be at least partly responsible.

Claiming For Bike Accidents Caused By Other Road Users

The most common cause of bicycle accidents involves a motor vehicle such as a car or lorry failing to leave sufficient room between themselves and your bike, turning across a cyclist’s path, emerging from a junction, or changing lanes on a roundabout.

However, there does not have to be contact with a motor vehicle for you to be able to claim. We have represented many cyclists who have had to take evasive action to avoid a collision.

Also, we have recovered significant compensation for “dooring” incidents, where a person in a parked motor vehicle opens their door into the path of a cyclist.

What Our Clients Say

"Bott and Co dealt with my claim in a professional way... Being a cyclist I feel the opposite party tried to take advantage of that fact hoping I wouldn’t claim against them. Bott and co were recommended to me and they fought my claim on my behalf. Without them I am sure in my mind I would have not won the claim."

Claiming For Bike Accidents Caused By Poor Road Conditions

You may also be able to claim if your accident was caused by a poor road surface, such as a pothole. In addition, faulty traffic lights or missing road signs can lead to a bike accident that was not your fault.

Claiming For Bike Accidents Caused By Defective Equipment

You may be able to claim compensation if your equipment leads to an accident. For example, this could be an issue with your bike or if your helmet was faulty.

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.

Additional Compensation

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.

What Can I Claim For After A Cycling Accident?

The Judicial College guidelines on the amount of compensation you can claim can vary substantially depending on the severity of your injury.

For example, a wrist injury can be valued between £2,300 and £39,300 – so the skill and experience of our solicitors in negotiating the best settlement ensures you receive the maximum amount of compensation you are entitled to.

Equally important is claiming the correct amount of special damages, both already incurred and what you may incur in the future. As long as such costs are related to your accident, you could claim for;

  • Loss of income due to the time you and your family took off work if they needed to take care of you
  • Cost for repairs or the replacement of your bike and equipment
  • Cost of any medical services required, such as physiotherapy, rehabilitation, or counselling
  • Costs of adaptations at home and change of vehicle if required
  • In some instances, we can provide an interim payment to cover costs you have incurred because of the injury.

For very serious injuries, we also recover compensation to cover additional costs from 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.

We take pride in securing the maximum possible compensation for you with a successful track record in recovering millions of pounds over the last 25 years.

Can I Make A No Win No Fee Cycling Accident Claim?

Yes, you can. Our legal 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.

    Deductions

    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.

Is There A Time Limit To Claim For A Cycling Accident?

In most cases, you will have up to three years from the date of the accident or the date you discovered your injuries to make a claim.

We recommend that you start your claim as soon after your accident as possible, as it makes it easier to gather evidence and speak with potential witnesses while events are still fresh in everyone’s mind.

You can claim on behalf of a child any time before their 18th birthday or up to three years after their 18th birthday.

There is no specific time limit for claiming on behalf of someone who does not have the mental capacity to make their own claim.

If your loved one has sadly passed away, you have three years from the date of passing or from receiving their post mortem results to start your claim.

How To Make A Cycling Accident Claim

We recognise the trauma you may be feeling after your accident and that this can make you unsure of what to do next.

Our award-winning, highly experienced legal team are on hand to speak with you about your accident and let you know of your legal rights.

When you contact us, you’ll be speaking to a team member who is also a cyclist, so we will understand more than most what has happened and give you the expert advice you’re looking for.

In addition to explaining your legal rights, we can discuss your options to access immediate physio and rehabilitation services and arrange to repair or replace your bike.

Any discussions about your claim are completely confidential, and there is no obligation to claim with us.

How Long Does A Cycling Accident Claim Take?

Every cycling accident claim is unique, and therefore, the length of time it takes for each claim to be settled is different.

Generally, the easier it is to prove who was at fault for your injury, the quicker the claim may be settled. Once fault is established, responsibility is accepted, the correct settlement amount can be negotiated and paid.

It may take longer for accidents where injuries are more serious.
Your injuries will need to be evaluated carefully to ensure you receive the maximum amount of compensation to reflect the medical care you may need in the future.

In most claims, compensation is settled out of court. However, the process may take longer for those few cases that go to court.

Please speak to our solicitors about the option of receiving an interim payment. This is where we can secure part of your settlement early. The payment can help with lost expenses you may have incurred, such as lost earnings medical and travel costs.

Our dedicated cycling accident claims legal department has over 1000 years of combined legal experience. Many solicitors have a history of successfully claiming over £1million in compensation for cyclists.

Our expertise and experience are needed to take on the insurance company who may be interested in settling for the lowest figure they can.

Insurers may want to limit the amount they payout. They may attempt to settle at the earliest opportunity and before all relevant medical evidence is available. We are experienced in handling such situations for our clients.

Our numerous awards, including for customer service and innovation, have elevated us to one of the leading consumer law firms in the UK.

The claims process usually consists of a number of specific parts:

  • Initial details and fact-finding
  • Establishing who is responsible and at fault for the accident
  • Medical assessments and evidence of losses
  • Valuation of claim
  • Negotiation with third party
  • Reach settlement or proceed to court
  • Court case and settlement

We take the time to obtain all evidence regarding the liability and forensically review the circumstances of the accident.

Our medical experts will provide the evidence needed to value your claim correctly, and our expert team will study all the evidence to maximise the damages recoverable.

Your claim evaluation could include information and evidence from a number of sources, such as;

  • Helmet cam footage
  • Dashcam footage
  • Medical reports
  • Google map data
  • Witness reports
  • Police/ambulance reports
  • Photo evidence
  • Specialist consultant reports
  • CCTV recordings

Who Pays For My Compensation?

Compensation is awarded through an insurance company, so no one person is responsible for paying your compensation. For example, if you were hit by a car on your bike, the person driving the car’s insurance company would pay the compensation.

How Much Does It Cost To Make A Claim?

We provide our legal services on a No Win No Fee basis. This means that you are not financially responsible if your claim is unsuccessful. However, like all firms, we will deduct a fee for our services if your claim is successful. The amount is discussed and agreed at the start of the claim process.

Can I Claim On Behalf Of Someone Else?

Yes, you can claim on behalf of someone else if the person you may be claiming for is unable to. For example, you can claim on behalf of a child or if the person lacks the mental capacity to claim for themselves.

Can I Claim If The Other Vehicle Didn’t Stop?

Yes, you can. The claim goes through the Motor Insurers Bureau for these “hit and run” type claims. You can also claim through the MIB if the person at fault for the accident is untraceable or did not have insurance.
