Cycling accident compensation claims

Cycling accident compensation claims

Cycling is a healthy and cost effective way to travel but inattentive drivers and poorly maintained roads can cause serious accidents.

The most common causes of cycling accident claims we see at Hudgell Solicitors are:

  • Cyclists being knocked off their bikes by other road users.
  • Poorly maintained roads and cycle lanes.
  • Oil spillages and debris being left in the road.

Should you or a loved one be injured in a cycling accident which wasn’t your fault, you may be able to make a cycling accident claim for compensation.

Hudgell Solicitors took my case on and my expectations were exceeded. All persons at Hudgell are professional and courteous. My claim was one against Norfolk Police. Without going into details, the Police had clearly been in the wrong and were in process of accusing me of exactly what they had actually done to me and a further cover up of the truth. Hudgell took my instructions and were in contact with me during the whole process and brought about a very satisfactory outcome. To be clear...Satisfactory is a very good outcome. I would recommend Hudgell without question. I feel I have been treated respectfully and my case notes were engrained into those at Hudgell that helped me get a conclusion to the most heinous acts from the Norfolk Police.

My brother was the victim of quite a bad motorcycle accident where he was not at fault. Sadly he only held third party cover so whilst he was in hospital I was asked by him to find a solicitor to claim against the third party. After doing some research I chose Hudgell to help us (even tho Neil Hudgell is the owner of the dreaded Hull KR and I am a massive FC fan). INITIAL CONTACT I made contact by phone and this was a simple conversation. The member of staff was very friendly and extremely helpful. All the questions I had were dealt with and I was very happy with the outcome of the call. FOLLOWING INITAL CONTACT. Within half an hour of contacting Hudgell’s a senior manager made contact with me and discussed what would happen next. Again this was very personal and really helpful. After another half an hour Sam (my brother’s now solicitor) called me. We chatted about what had happened and what he was planning to do initially. Sam was really friendly and understanding. He put me at ease right away and explained everything clearly and directly answering all questions I had. Within a week of the claim being opened Sam and Laura (Chartered Legal Executive) visited my brother in hospital. They helped put him at ease immediately and talked through what would happen, what their objectives were and also but more importantly made my brother understand that they would do everything to help him in any way he needed. After this meeting in the hospital we were happy that this claim was in safe hands. Sam the Solicitor A very friendly chap who shoots from the hip and tells you a spade is a spade. A chap who doesn’t make promises he can’t keep. A really likable man who you would want to have a pint with and we did not always look at him as the solicitor. He kept us updated at all stages and was always contactable. I did have one heated conversation with Sam BUT this was a good thing. I say this because he is very passionate about his job sometimes when a third person (me) is acting on behalf of the victim (my brother) it can be a little hard at times to please everyone. He took all we threw at him and directed us really well. Sam thank you for all your hard work, your support and the outcome. Laura Chartered Legal Executive What can I say about Laura, an absolute gem this lady is. Professional, very committed to her job, compassionate, More than helpful, caring and really cared in my opinion about my brother and his recovery. Every contact we had with Laura was amazing. She is one of those people who puts you at ease right away. Laura dealt with every problem with put at her feet, every question we had she dealt with and if she could not answer there and then she would find the answers we needed. If we had a problem she would find a solution. Again always contactable and if she could not respond immediately to a call she would call back within the business day. Laura thank you for all your hard work, Thank you for being there when we were dealing with all the problems we had. Both Sam and yourself are a credit to your company and your profession. The service provided by Hudgell’s far exceeded what we expected. If you need the services Hudgell provides then I would highly recommend your choice of solicitors is this company.

I was represented/instructed by Mobeena Salim, who was always available when i wanted to discuss my case, which was reassuring and comforting. We were able to pressure the defendants who eventually agreed to settle and this meant we did not have the drawn out court process! Overall, i am happy with the service, only criticism is that i feel we could have settled a higher amonut if we continued negotiations. Would use this firm again! Thanks for everything.

FAQs

FAQs

Do I qualify for a cycling accident claim?

If your cycling accident took place within the last three years, and was caused by a negligent driver or some other factor that wasn’t your fault, you may be able to make a claim.

Once you get in touch with our team of cycle accident lawyers, they will be able to assess your case and see if it would be possible to make a claim.

You can also make a bike accident claim on behalf of a loved one if they have been injured, or if sadly they have been killed in a cycling accident.

 

 

How much compensation can I expect for a cycling accident claim?

There are no standard amounts for compensation pay-outs, and it’s all down to the specific circumstances of your cycling accident claim.

The amount that could be awarded depends on many different factors, from the nature of your injuries to the financial costs of medical care and loss of income.

A successful compensation claim will take into account any pain and suffering as a result of your cycling accident, but can also help cover the cost of any treatment, physiotherapy and rehabilitation support you may need to get you back to good health.

Our expert cycle accident solicitors will go over every detail of your case to ensure the amount asked for provides fair compensation.

As well as your injuries, other factors that will be taken into account include:

  • Current and ongoing medical care.
  • The cost of adapting your home as a result of long-lasting injury.
  • Damage or replacement of your bicycle or other personal belongings.
  • Lost income because of absence from work or unemployment because of your injuries.

What if I didn’t get the details of the driver who caused my injuries or they are not insured?

If you’ve been hit by an uninsured driver, or someone who failed to stop following an accident, you may still be able to make a personal injury claim for the injuries you sustained against the Motor Insurers Bureau (MIB). This is an organisation which deals with claims by victims of accidents where either the offending driver cannot be traced, or, if identified, turns out to be uninsured.

Our team has handled many claims through the MIB, including securing a £22,500 damages settlement for a client left with injuries after an uninsured driver clipped the back of his car, causing it to mount the kerb and crash head on into a lamppost.

Our team also secured compensation for a pedestrian injured when struck by a van which drove off after dragging him to the ground as he was waiting to cross the road.

What if I was partly to blame for the accident or my own injuries?

If you have sustained injuries and believe you may have been at fault, it is still worth discussing your case with a solicitor, as there may be the possibility of negotiating a ‘split liability’ claim.

It is not always the case that road traffic accidents are 100% one party’s fault, and the civil law recognises this.

We’ve secured vital financial compensation for many clients in cases where the injured party has had to accept some of the blame for the accident happening, or for the injuries they have suffered.

This, for example, includes cases where people have been injured when not wearing their seatbelt. The general rule in such cases is that the compensation will be reduced by 25% to reflect ‘contributory negligence’ for not taking this mandatory safety precaution.

How long after a road traffic accident should I make a claim?

Time limits do apply to road traffic accident claims and usually you have three years from the date of the accident to issue proceedings in relation to your claim.

It is very much in your interests to pursue a claim sooner rather than later. This is why speaking to one of our road traffic accident team today can make all the difference.

Your lawyer’s aim will be to ensure you make the best recovery possible and seek the compensation you deserve for any pain and suffering, loss of income, rehabilitation requirements, and in the most serious cases, accommodation and specialist equipment needs.
