Let us help YOU with your Bicycle Accident Claim
What makes bicycle accident claims different and special?
Normally 1mm of cotton or lycra.
Cyclists do not have the luxury of sitting in a 1-tonne metal box. They must share the road with cars, lorries and buses. They have the same rights to be on those roads. But they have to contend with impatient, inattentive or downright aggressive drivers.
Types of accidents
Generally, there are 3 main types of accidents where you might have a claim against a third party.
- Lack of attention by a motorist, not seeing you on a roundabout, poorly judging speed and cutting you up and taking a left turn soon after an overtake are the most common but by no means the only types.
- Poor road surface, be it potholes, raised or smooth drains, parallel tram tracks. Or my current favourite would be loose shingle dressing that does nothing to the previous defects other than cover them in a loose shingle dressing.
- Pedestrians trying to commit suicide by mobile phone, walking into the road without looking. This one may be the hardest to win however as you need to have their details and hope they have some sort of 3rd party insurance cover in their home contents policy.
Sadly due to the nature of these accidents and the speeds involved. The lack of protection bicycle provide. Accidents at best will result in severe gravel rash and at worst multiple breaks (or worse). Injuries from bicycle accidents are not only physical they can also be psychological and result in being unable to get back on a bike. If you use a bicycle to commute to work then there is an additional cost there. If you are mentally scarred from your accident you should consider seeking help from your GP or visit the hospital who may be able to provide counselling that may help you back on the road to recovery.
Cyclists are an odd breed of people in that often all they want is their bicycle repaired. However non-riding members of the public often do not realise the overall cost in repairing damaged bicycles the equipment attached and the clothing worn. Often the only way to get you back to the position you were in prior to an accident is to simply make a claim.
So we would say in almost all cases if you want your bicycle repaired or replaced and you were injured and needed to seek medical attention then you should make a claim. Please fill in the contact me form on this page or give us a ring and we can discuss your claim and get the ball rolling.
