Can I make a claim for a cyclist accident?
All road users, including cyclists, are protected in law to ensure their safety on our roads. Motorists, other road users and local authorities share these responsibilities and when this protection is missing or flouted in any way, then accidents can occur, having potentially devastating consequences.
Many clients that are injured while riding their bike feel unfairly blamed for an accident but if the accident wasn’t your fault and we can prove you were injured because of the negligence of someone else or that blame does lie elsewhere, we’ll pursue a personal injury compensation claim on your behalf.
Clear and practical advice every step of the way
When you’re considering making a personal injury claim you’ll probably have a few questions that need answering. We’ll answer any queries you have – expertly and with no obligation.

I wasn’t wearing a helmet when I came off my bicycle – how does that affect my claim?
In accident claims the defendant insurance company can argue for damages to be reduced by a certain percentage due to “contributory negligence” to reflect the fact that the claimant is partly responsible for their own injuries. In car crashes this would apply for failure to wear a seatbelt and for motorcycles for failure to wear a helmet. Insurers are now starting to argue for a reduction where a cyclist fails to wear a helmet and suffer a head injury that could have been prevented.
We would always advise cyclists to wear helmets regardless of however that may affect any subsequent accident claim.
