    With cycling accidents occurring in the thousands, it’s very important to seek advice and support if you have been involved in a cycling accident as you could be eligible to make a claim and receive a pay-out for your incident. Over 18,000 incidents occurred in 2016 involving cyclists, and just over 3,000 of those incidents were categorised as serious injury cases.

    Cycling accidents are becoming more and more frequent. In fact, cyclists are now known to be among one of the most vulnerable road users. When you compare cycling to motor vehicle accidents, per billion vehicles miles, 1,011 pedal cyclists are killed or seriously injured, in comparison to 26 car drivers. So, if you’ve experienced any sort of injury as a result of a cycling incident, you could have a possible compensation claim against the opposite party concerned.

    How much compensation could I be entitled to?

    There are several factors that are taken into consideration when we work to determine the quantity of compensation that should be awarded to a claimant. The main factors to be considered is the nature of the seriousness of the injuries sustained the victim.

    In the UK there are nearly 15,000 incidents a year where the victim has been slightly injured compared to just over 100 incidents involving a fatality. However, the court can also take into account a number of variables that would be associated with the accident, for example, if the cyclist was partly to blame.

    Compensation awarded will vary depending on the injuries caused and the level of severity and the circumstances. Grieves Solicitors are specialist personal injury solicitors and have a great deal of experience in dealing with cycling accidents compensation claims.
