Cycling Accident Claims

Our specialist cycle accident solicitors advise on all types of cycle accidents, including those involving:

  • Badly maintained roads and potholes
  • Careless, reckless or speeding drivers
  • Drivers failing to see cyclists when turning or changing lanes
  • Drivers failing to indicate
  • Hit and run drivers
  • Road rage injuries to cyclists
  • Sports event
  • Uninsured drivers
  • Vehicles pulling out of junctions
  • Vehicles turning into the path of cyclists
  • Vehicle doors opening in front of oncoming cyclists
  • Vehicles not giving sufficient space to cyclists when navigating around them and overtaking
  • Workplace cyclists such as couriers or delivery cyclists who cycle as part of their employment  

Cycling Accident Injuries

Common cycle accident injuries our personal injury solicitors advise on include:

  • Back and spinal injuries
  • Fractures
  • Head and brain injuries
  • Road rash
  • Soft tissue injuries
  • Psychological injuries

Cycle Accident Compensation

If you’ve been involved in a cycling accident that wasn’t your fault, you could make a claim for compensation to recover for:

  • Personal injuries
  • Damage to your bike
  • Damage to your helmet, clothes and kit
  • Loss of earnings because of your injuries and inability to work
  • Transport costs incurred because of the accident
  • Rehabilitation costs such as physiotherapy sessions or hydrotherapy

Your personal injury damages will depend on the nature of your cycle accident injuries.

Our cycle accident solicitors will arrange for medical assessments and reports to detail your injuries and comment on the short and long-term impact of your accident. For example, a severe spinal injury may result in your not being able to continue in your current employment. Evidence will need to be obtained on the extent of your ability to work in future and the impact on your earnings potential.

When it comes to your bike, it may be repairable or need replacing if it is no longer safe to ride. An expert report may be required, especially if your cycle was top of the range. When it comes to helmets and other kit it is helpful if you can produce evidence of purchase receipts to support your compensation claim.

Our cycle accident solicitors know that, where possible, you will be keen to get back on the road cycling again.

Where liability is admitted by the other party and their insurer we can press for an interim compensation payment so you have the funds to get your bike or helmet repaired, whilst the remainder of your personal injury claim is considered.

Chloe Newsome dad been dealing with my family court cases and my divorce proceedings. She was a pleasure to work with and is very realistic in her advice. I was suspicious of solicitors in the lead up to my cases but Chloe went above and beyond what I could have expected, offering impartial advice and encouraging alternative ways for me to move forward. Can’t thank her enough.

Client Testimonials

Two departments one fantastic service

Frank, could I just take a moment to thank you for everything you and Jayne have done. Throughout the whole experience, I was guided by yourself and on occasions, it became quite complicated with my situation however I must express how professional you are and how well you navigated and negotiated the final outcome. Also, Jayne was always a pleasure to speak with and again professional and communicative at every stage.  Without a doubt the best Solicitors practice I have ever dealt with the results Macks Solicitors get, speak for themselves.

A positive outcome in a complex case

Rebecca Montague Dealt with my claim and right from our first conversation she made me feel confident that she would do her best for me. Rebecca was genuinely interested to find out how I actually felt about each stage of the case and I was involved from start to finish. If Rebecca was off any query I had would be dealt with by her colleague or secretary. I have had an extremely positive relationship with this firm and was lucky in that I had a positive outcome in a complex case but this is not the reason I rate this firm a 5. I can only speak from experience and so Rebecca and her team get a 5 because it was always about me and they didn’t give up when things got difficult. Thank you I would have no hesitation in using your firm again.
