Increasing numbers of people are using motorbikes and bicycles for commuting, leisure and to keep active. Whether you commute on a daily basis, take part in competitions or just cycle for fun at the weekend, we can help if you are unfortunate enough to have an accident.
Being involved in an accident on your bike is frustrating enough, without the hassle of dealing with the financial implications and recovering from the injuries that you may have sustained.
We have a specialist team dedicated to dealing with claims on behalf of cyclists and motorcyclists injured in accidents. This type of claims requires solicitors who are knowledgeable about the additional requirements that cyclists or motorcyclists have.
Our team is made up of keen cyclists and experienced injury lawyers. We can help you obtain compensation for:
- Your injuries
- Cost of repairing or replacing bicycle, motorbike, helmet, lights, other accessories and clothing that were damaged
- Any loss of earnings you have suffered
- Cost of physiotherapy other medical treatment
- Travel costs for visiting your doctor, hospital or for treatment
- Additional travel costs from using public transport or having to drive to work
- Cost of prescriptions and other medication
We can pursue RTA claims against car drivers, bus companies, other cyclists and pedestrians (providing they have insurance).
If the person who caused your accident does not have insurance, or did not stop after the collision, you may still be able to pursue your claim through the Motor Insurers’ Bureau in certain circumstances or you may be able to pursue the individual directly.
We can also advise you on a claim if you were injured because of a known or reported defect with your bicycle or motorbike, as well as accidents caused by debris on the road or as a result of poorly maintained roads.
Cyclists and motorcyclists are more vulnerable than other road users, and the injuries sustained can be more serious and have a debilitating effect of daily activities. We have a wealth of experience in dealing with all types of injuries, including broken bones, head injuries, soft-tissue injuries, as well as psychological trauma. We can arrange treatment for you and include the cost of this in your claim against the person who was responsible.
Once we have investigated your claim thoroughly, and liability has been admitted by the responsible party’s insurers, we can ask for an interim payment, meaning you will not be left out of pocket when using different means of transport.
We take cases on a ‘no win no fee’ basis, meaning our legal costs are paid by the responsible party’s insurers. Contact us today, and we will explain all of the available funding options to you.
