Cycling Accident Compensation – How much could I get?
This question is difficult to answer as every claim is different. What we can say is that the amount of compensation you can claim is dependant on how serious your injuries are as well as other factors. We would look to claim back any expenses you may have incurred as a result of your cycling accident, for example, replacing the bike, loss of earnings, rehabilitation costs, physiotherapy and further treatment you may need in order to make a full recovery.
If you have had a cycle accident then it is good advice to claim as soon as you are able to. We are normally able to work on a NO WIN NO FEE basis and the insurance of the ‘at blame’ party would pay the fee.
