Road Traffic Accidents

Cyclists are recognized as vulnerable road users and such vulnerability makes it almost inevitable that a cyclist will come off the worst in any accident involving their bike and a car.

A cyclist may suffer an injury because of:

  • Being hit by a car
  • the dangerous condition of the road caused by a Local Authority or Contractor.

Even a minor incident can result in a cyclist being thrown off their bicycle and sustaining horrendous injuries.

If you believe that your cycling injury was caused as a result of the fault of another person/motorist contact our experienced personal injury solicitors in our Litigation Department who will fully advise you of your rights and help you make a claim for compensation.

All claims for injuries should be made without delay as strict time limits apply.

A person normally has two years from the date of the accident to bring a compensation claim for personal injuries.

This differs in the case of an injured child in that the ‘limitation period’ does not start to run until the child reaches 18 years old – A child may bring a claim for injuries sustained as a child up until his/her 20th birthday.
