For many of us, riding a bike is a cheap and environmentally friendly alternative to driving or public transport and it’s also a great way to exercise. But there are risks involved, whether you make your living from cycling, you use your bike to get to work or you enjoy a ride at the weekend. 119 cyclists were killed and 3,292 were seriously injured on Britain’s roads in 2011, and a further 16,472 riders received minor injuries.
Many cyclists involved in road accidents receive serious injuries through no fault of their own, as another road user is to blame for causing the accident. As a cyclist, riding your bike means sharing the road with other faster, larger vehicles whose occupants have a much greater level of protection from the effects of a road accident. These other road users may not be aware of you and your bike and this could lead to an accident.
If you’re a cyclist and you have been injured in an accident that wasn’t your fault, our solicitors will work with you to provide a complete after accident service. Whatever your priorities are, whether it’s your recovery from your injuries, getting your bike repaired or making a claim for accident compensation, we can arrange it for you.
Even if you have only been involved in a relatively minor accident, we understand that you will have a lot of questions you want answered, including:

If you’ve been hurt in a bicycle accident, at Canter Levin & Berg Solicitors we are ready to help. We offer a free consultation over the telephone for all accident victims. In this consultation, one of our friendly team will go through the circumstances of your accident with you.
We will use the information you provide to us to make a decision about whether you have grounds to make a cycling accident claim. Don’t worry if you don’t have all the details of your accident to hand, after all in a cycling accident you probably had other priorities. If we think your claim stands a good chance of succeeding, we can obtain further evidence from the accident scene and from a medical report on your injuries.
We don’t just recover compensation for your injuries as you might expect. At Canter Levin & Berg Solicitors we know that as someone involved in a cycling accident, you will have your own priorities, based on your injuries and the impact your cycling accident has had on your life. That’s why our solicitors and staff will tailor the service we provide so that what matters to you is given priority.
It might be that you rode an expensive custom bike, or one which had lots of added-on extras and modifications, or maybe you were kitted out in the latest cycling wear – if it matters to you then it matters to us. On the other hand, we’re equally able to help if you simply want to arrange some private medical care to aid your rehabilitation and get you cycling again as quickly as possible.
From the moment you make that first call we will work for you to ensure your claim has the benefit of being worked on by our highly experiences road accident legal team. We will remain in contact with you throughout the duration of your compensation claim and where necessary we will explain everything you need to know about your claim and the processes involved in a clear and concise manner.
If calling isn’t convenient, you can also complete our online enquiry form giving all of your details and we will call you back to discuss your accident and your options for making a claim. Whatever way you choose to contact us, we will be happy to assist and inform you straight away if we believe you have a case for compensation.
