Cycling has become very popular during the past few years and many more cyclists are now on the road than ever before – and sadly this means the number of cycling accidents has increased too, together with cycling claims.
We are here to help if you have been injured in a cycling accident that was not your fault and we will work hard to secure the compensation you deserve if you decide to make a claim.
During lockdown and Covid-19, the roads had been quieter and many more people had taken to cycling for transport or leisure – however, despite the fewer cars, there were still a high number of road accidents during 2020.
According to the Department of Transport’s report on Road Traffic Estimates for Great Britain for 2020, there was a 21.3% decrease in vehicles being driven on the road in 2020 compared to 2019 whereas the number of cyclists increased by 45.7% in 2020 compared to 2019.
Unfortunately, the drop in vehicles on the road did not lead to a drop in road traffic accidents – reported accidents between July 2018 and June 2019 included 3,760 fatalities and serious injuries, and 13,615 accidents causing minor injuries. During July 2019 and June 2020, there were 3,720 fatalities and serious injuries, and 12,080 accidents causing minor injuries.
If you have been injured in a cycling accident, your priority is likely to be to recover and to get back on your bike as soon as you possibly can – and we are here to assist you with this as our priority too.
As part of working with you during the cycling claims process, we will:
- Help you secure the right amount of compensation
- Arrange rehabilitation treatment such as physiotherapy or counselling as soon as possible, as the sooner you start the greater your chances of recovery are
- Ask for an interim payment from the insurers to fix or replace your bicycle
How We Can Help You With Your Cycling Claim?
Cycling accidents can cause serious physical injuries as well as psychological injuries, and if you have been hurt in an accident that was not your fault, we are here to help you.
Making a cycling claim is about much more than securing compensation for your personal injuries – it is about helping you to recover and providing the support you need so you can get back to cycling as soon as possible.
We will support you at every stage of the claims process, ensuring you are rewarded with the right level of compensation and that your treatment needs are met. If you need extensive rehabilitation, we will work hard to secure funding from the other party’s insurers quickly and to arrange an agreed treatment plan for you going forward.
