Cycling Accident Compensation Claims

The increasing number of both vehicles and cyclists on the UK roads is resulting in more accidents and casualties each year. Cycling is an enjoyable, healthy and cost effective way to travel, with more and more people taking to the roads on their bikes, whether for pleasure, fitness, or simply to get to and from work.

Cyclists are particularly vulnerable when on busy roads, and when they are involved in accidents, injuries can range from cuts and bruises to serious head and spinal injuries, or even death.

We are vastly experienced in handling claims involving all kinds of injuries, so we can offer expert advice not only on compensation, but also on rehabilitation, and provision of access to specialist medical care and support services.

“Sadly there are many people left in a similar situation to this when they are involved in accidents with untraced or uninsured drivers.

“Not only does it leave them struggling to recover the costs of the accident with regards the damage to vehicles or cycles, it more importantly means they are unable to pursue damages for injuries suffered, and to recover loss of earnings through insurers.”

No Win No Fee: Car Accident Compensation

Our car accident compensation claims work on a No Win, No Fee basis, which means you won’t pay a penny, regardless of the outcome of your case.

If successful, part of your compensation will be paid towards your solicitor to cover the fees. This cost will often be a percentage that you agree prior to court proceedings, so you have complete transparency of your No Win, No Fee arrangement upfront.

As part of the No Win, No Fee agreement, you’ll take out personal insurance cover, which will protect you against the cost of additional expenses such as medical records and court fees. If your case is unsuccessful, you won’t owe anything to your solicitor.

Cycling Accident: Frequently Asked Questions

How will Hudgell Solicitors support me in my cycling accident claim?

Our specialist team of solicitors will investigate the circumstances of your cycling accident fully and identify who was legally responsible for what happened to you, or your loved one.

Once an admission of fault has been secured, we will be in a position to pursue compensation for your injuries, suffering and loss.

We are committed to ‘seeing the person, not just the claim’, so you can be assured that we will give you straightforward and honest advice, so that you know all of your options from the very start.

We pride ourselves on cutting through the legal jargon to give you regular updates in plain English, taking the worry and hassle out of making a claim.

What will compensation cover for me?

A successful compensation claim will take into account any pain and suffering as a result of your 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.

We will collect information on your financial losses, from the cost of treatments to travel costs, loss of earnings or anything else that has left you out of pocket, making finances one less thing to worry about.

If you have to stop working all together, we will also look to claim for your future losses, and cover the cost of any support or aids needed to help you within your home.

Claims can also cover things such as the cost of replacing or repairing your bike and any other equipment damaged in the accident.

What is the cost to making a claim?

We run all cases on a no win, no fee basis, which means you don’t have to pay a penny to get the legal representation you need and deserve.

Ultimately, the only time you’ll end up paying for legal costs is if your case is successful – and even then you will only ever pay an agreed percentage of damages as a contribution to costs.

There’s absolutely no risk involved in inquiring about your position, or your claim, so it pays to speak with an expert.

How do I start my claim for compensation?

You can call our team for free advice today, or use our contact form to request a call back and one of our specialists will be in touch.

Using our wealth of knowledge and expertise, we will give you straightforward and honest advice, so that you know all of your options.
