Bicycle Claims

Whilst cycling can be good fun and great exercise, cyclists are vulnerable on the roads and have little protection if they are involved in a collision (especially with a motor vehicle). Every year about 19,000 cyclists are injured or killed in accidents, and many more accidents go unreported.


The injuries that cyclists sustain in road traffic collisions can often be very serious and have a profound impact on their family, work and social life. It is not only the physical injury but also the economic consequences of an accident, such as lost earnings, that can cause great hardship. At Ashfords LLP we have experience in supporting you at this vulnerable time, helping to arrange treatment and interim payments to get you back on your wheels as quickly as possible.

Compensation is divided into:

General Damages – a lump sum of compensation for the injury, to compensate you for your pain and suffering.

Special Damages – these are your out-of-pocket expenses, e.g. loss of earnings, repairs to your bike, damaged clothing/accessories which require repair or replacement. We understand the bespoke nature of bikes, whether they are for time trials or commuting, and can ensure that you are able to replace your equipment at the correct specification.

We can offer you expert support and advice on your claim, and help you to secure the compensation that you deserve. If you would like to discuss a personal injury claim and the funding options available to you, please contact Gemma Rowe on 01392 334017 for a free, no-obligation chat.
