Bicycle Accident Claims

Riding a bicycle on our busy roads is linked to a high level of vulnerability, especially since cyclists don’t have the same protection available to drivers, such as air bags or seatbelts.

Bicycle accident statistics

According to Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA):

  • 75% of serious or fatal bicycle accidents happen in urban areas
  • Approximately 75% of such incidents happen around
    a road junction
  • More than 80% of cyclist casualties occur in daylight
  • 25% of the cyclists killed or injured are children
  • Around 75% of victims killed in bicycle accidents had major head injuries.


How long do I have to put in a compensation claim?

Usually you have three years to start legal proceedings for personal injury, however in the case of claims related to Asbestos or delayed symptoms you would have three years from the date the symptoms / causes were identified by a professional.
