You may want electric bike injury advice if you have an accident when you are out and about on your electric bike. If you have had an accident in the last three years that was not your fault, you may be eligible to claim compensation for your injury. Accident Advice Helpline, whose sponsor is UK consumer champion and television personality Dame Esther Rantzen, has helped thousands of people claim personal injury compensation since its establishment in 2000 and we are experts in our field.
Riding your electric bike
Electric bikes have grown in popularity over the last few years, and in the United Kingdom, you do not need a licence to ride electric bikes that meet certain requirements if you are over 14 years old, and they do not need to be registered, taxed or insured. They are regarded as a normal pedal bike and can be ridden anywhere pedal bikes are allowed. They can be bicycles, tandems or tricycles. If bikes do not meet the right criteria they need to be registered and taxed, and you will need a driving licence and to wear a crash helmet.
Whether you are riding your electric bike on a road or cycle path, there is always the possibility of an accident, and if you do have one and it is not your fault you will need electric bike injury advice to find out what to do next.

Your injury may have meant you were unable to work and have incurred costs for treatment. If this is the case, it is imperative to keep receipts and invoices as proof.
