Accident claim advice for cycling injuries

We understand that cyclists can be vulnerable when they are on the road and if you have ever been involved in a cycle accident you will understand what a traumatic event this can be. Clear Answers' expert solicitors specialise in all types of cycle accident claims and all of our clients are treated with the respect and sympathy that they deserve.

Designated cycle path was dangerous

Our client was injured during an organised city cycle ride when she fell off her bike because the route had been poorly maintained by the council. Our client contacted our specialist personal injury lawyers because the impact from the fall caused her to fracture her coccyx bone and she took eight weeks to recover.

The designated cycle route included a bridge made of wooden planks. As she cycled over the bridge, her bike swerved on the slippery surface and the front wheel went into a gap between the wooden planks, causing her to fall off her bike.

Clear Answers specialises in cycle accident claims

Clear Answers' accident claim lawyers are experts in cycle accident compensation claims. We offer specialist accident claim advice to anyone injured in a cycle accident, or any road accident, through no fault of their own.


We promise to strive to obtain the maximum amount of compensation for your cycle accident claim in the shortest possible timeframe. If you or a member of your family has been injured as a result of a cycle accident then you may be able to proceed with a personal injury compensation claim. Contact Clear Answers' cycle accident solicitors on 0800 783 9019 or alternatively fill out an online accident claim form and a representative will contact you as soon as possible.

Strict time limits apply for making any accident claim, so please seek expert legal advice as soon as you think you may have a valid accident claim for personal injury compensation.

Cycle accidents

As so many of us fail to wear correct headgear whilst riding a bicycle, serious injuries sustained in cycling accidents are frighteningly common. Even a suitable bicycle helmet is no guarantee that you will escape a head injury if you are in a cycle accident involving a car, bus or lorry.

Each year 1500 cyclists are killed or injured in cycle accidents on Britain's roads. This is just the number of cycle accidents each year that are reported. It is estimated that in total somewhere between 60 and 90 per cent of these types of cycle accidents go unreported. The precise nature of a cycling accident and the injuries suffered will vary. However the most common causes of injury from a cycling accident are listed below:

Varying circumstances contribute to the severity of a cycling injury but below is a list of the most typical head injuries you might sustain in a cycle accident:

Cycle accident statistics

According to the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) approximately one quarter of cyclists killed and about one third of cyclists injured are children. Other cycle accident figures include:

Cycle accident claims - what to do

If you or a member of your family have been injured as a result of a cycle accident through no fault of your own then it is advisable to obtain prompt legal advice from a solicitor who specialises in winning the maximum compensation for cycle accident claims. It is also important that you obtain the details of anyone else involved in your cycle accident as it may be difficult to pursue an accident claim for personal injury compensation without them.

If you are involved in a cycling accident then there are a number of things that you should do if you are not prevented from doing so by your injuries:

After being involved in a cycling accident it is also advisable to do the following:

Client testimonial on successful cycling accident claim

Cyclist injured in 4x4 collision successfully claims compensation for injuries

"In February 2006 I was cycling along a road in South London when a 4x4 car pulled out from a T-junction and knocked me off. The driver clearly wasn't paying attention to the road and as a result I suffered several injuries. As well as cuts and bruises to my body and head, my hip was broken in the fall. It could have been a lot worse.

"Although I can walk, I still suffer with pain in my hip, especially when the weather is cold and I'm outside.

"Shortly after the accident, I decided to seek financial compensation and turned to Clear Answers for their advice and guidance. I'd never sought personal injury compensation before and didn't quite know what to expect. The driver of the vehicle and their insurance company weren't forthcoming and so Clear Answers stepped in to help me.

"They put me in touch immediately with their legal experts, Thompsons Solicitors, who were fantastic. Not only did they explain everything in clear language, they lived up to their promises. Forms were sent on time, they kept me informed and I had the same solicitor throughout my case, who was very good.

"With Clear Answers and Thompsons Solicitors expert guidance, I was eventually awarded £5,500 in compensation."
