Bicycle Injury Compensation Claim


More and more people are now taking steps to reduce their carbon footprint, as the consequences of climate change become increasingly evident in our everyday lives. Commuters in particular are making efforts to reduce their carbon emissions by avoiding the use of their car, and taking public transport instead. In cities, commuters on bicycles are now commonplace; marking a greener alternative as well as an enjoyable, convenient and healthier way to get from A to B. In major cities such as London, commuters see cycling as a refreshing alternative to busy tube stations and bus routes.

Accidents do happen

The downside to commuting via bicycle is that accidents do happen, especially in large congested cities where drivers may be under pressure and not paying full attention to other road users. With the increase in bicycle commuters, accidents involving cyclists have also seen an increase. If you have suffered an accident whilst commuting on your bicycle, you may be entitled to make a bicycle injury compensation claim.

Every year in the UK, over 16,000 cyclists are involved in road traffic accidents resulting in mild to moderate injuries, and more than an additional 2,000 are classed as very seriously injured. Regardless of the severity of your injury, being involved in a bicycle accident is a shocking experience that may take months or even years to recover from; if not physically, then psychologically. You should pursue bicycle injury compensation as soon as you can following an accident, progressing your potential claim with a reputable company.

Am I eligible to make a bicycle injury compensation claim?

If you were involved in an accident whilst cycling, there are certain conditions that your injury must fulfil in order to make a claim. Your accident must have happened within the past three years, and have been someone else’s fault . For example, it may have occurred as a result of:

  • Careless driving
  • Poor road conditions
  • Equipment failure
  • Interference by uncontrolled animals
  • Training accidents
