Cycle accident solicitors

Our specialist cycle and road traffic accident solicitors are highly experienced in handling cycle accident claims and can offer help to you through every step from the accident to rehabilitation to getting you back on your bike.

Have you or a member of your family had an accident whilst cycling?

Pedal bike accidents and cycling injuries can be particularly severe. Cyclists are particularly vulnerable to car drivers, HGV and other heavy traffic and even pedestrians who don’t take sufficient care before stepping out into the road. Cyclists are also faced with hazards such as defects in the road surface including potholes, broken tarmac, mud, oil and also spillages.

Expert cycle accident compensation lawyers

For over 20 years we have specialised in cycle accident claims and in helping cyclists get compensation for the losses and injuries that they have suffered. We have particular experience of helping cyclists get compensation when other road accident law firms and road accident claims companies have failed or refused to take a case on.

Amputations following a cycling accident

Being involved in a cycling accident can often result in serious injury to the cyclist; it has been found that those on pedal bikes and motorbikes are more likely to suffer injuries to their left legs as one of the most common accidents is other road users pulling out of side roads with no warning.

The Department for Transport found that between 1999 and 2015 77% of those involved in cycle accidents who were admitted to hospital had serious limb-threatening injuries. This is due to the lack of protection between a cyclist’s body and the road surface or other vehicles involved in the collision.

The injuries most commonly associated with a cycle accident which can lead to amputation include:

  • Bone breaks or fractures leading to loss of blood supply
  • Traumatic amputation
  • Nerve endings in limbs being too severely damaged

Limb loss accident compensation claims can help an amputee with immediate costs for rehabilitation and physiotherapy and future costs with sports prosthetics to help them get back on their bikes. An amputation claim can also be used for modifications to homes and cars to make sure that the amputee can reach their full potential with as much ease as possible.

If you or a member of your family has lost a limb as a result of a cycle accident then contact our specialist limb loss claims solicitors for a quick, free, no obligation chat about making a claim. 

Paralysis following a cycle accident

Paralysis as a result of a cycle accident can be caused through a direct hit to the back or an awkward landing could damage the spinal cord, causing either paraplegia or tetraplegia. Cyclists are especially vulnerable to paralysis following an accident due to how unprotected they are. Spinal injuries are one of the most common traumas that cyclists report; it is also one of the most potentially debilitating.

Spinal injuries require the correct treatment from the very beginning, if the spine is not immobilized quickly enough then the injury could get worse, leaving the victim with a reduced chance of recovery.

The most common types of spinal injury sustained from cycle accidents include:

  • Slipped discs
  • Spinal compression
  • Spinal cord dysfunction
  • Paralysis

Those that suffer from a serious spinal injury as a result of a cycle accident rarely fully recover however early rehabilitation efforts have been known to help. Our specialist cycle accident lawyers are dedicated to making sure that each one of their clients gets the compensation they need.

If you or a member of your family has suffered paralysis as a result of a cycle accident then contact our specialist solicitors for a free, quick, no obligation chat about making a claim.
