Can I make a cycling accident compensation claim?
If your cycling accident was the result of another road user or an organisation's negligence, it is highly likely you will be able to claim financial compensation for your injuries.
Because cyclists, unlike motorists, do not have insurance companies to protect them against the cost of repairing their damaged vehicle or paying expensive medical bills, it is important that cyclists contact a specialist cycling accident solicitor as soon as possible following an accident that was not their fault.
Depending on the circumstances of the accident, a bicycle accident solicitor can help you claim for injuries such as:
- Head injuries
- Brain injuries
- Dental injuries
- Spinal injuries
- Nerve injuries
- Eye injuries
- Lacerations and scarring
- Internal injuries
Grieves Solicitors will provide legal advice and support throughout the course of your cycling accident claim, ensuring you receive the maximum amount of compensation for your injuries.
How much compensation can I claim for a cycling accident?
The level of compensation you are eligible to claim when involved in a cycling accident will depend on a range of factors, including:
- The severity of the injury
- Treatment given and expected future treatment
- Changes in physical and mental ability
- Level of suffering and pain
- Earnings lost as a result of the accident through recovery time and ability to return to work

What are the most common types of bicycle accident?
Common bike accidents include:
- Accidents caused by drivers - perhaps you were knocked off your bike due to the negligence of the driver of a bus, lorry, car or motorbike?

- Personal injury
- Damaged property
- Loss of earnings
- Emotional distress
- Memory loss
