Cycling Accidents

If you have been involved in a cycling accident that wasn’t your fault then you may be entitled to claim compensation. At DA Martin we understand being involved in a cycling accident is a traumatic experience.DA Martin Solicitors are cycling accident specialists having for over 30 years secured compensation for clients who have been injured in cycling accidents.

Who can claim and what can they claim

Anyone who has been injured in a cycling accident can make a claim provided it is within three years of the date of injury or the date of knowledge of injury. Motorists have a responsibility to cyclists on the road and if you are injured due to the negligence in their driving you are entitled to be compensated.

You can claim for any injuries that you sustain and any financial losses incurred as result of the injuries sustained.

The common types of Cycling claims

Common types of accidents are caused by;

  • Car collisions caused by driver mistakes, such as drivers turning left or right without looking, not seeing a cyclist in clear view and failing to give the cyclist the proper space on the road when performing a manoeuvre.
  • Pot holes or cracks in the road
  • Defective equipment such as poorly manufactured bikes
  • Animals on the roads

Types of Injuries

Injuries sustained in cycling accidents can range from minor cuts and grazes to serious life threatening injuries. At DA Martin we recognise the trauma of a cycling accident. We will ensure that you receive the compensation that you deserve.
