Cycling accidents


“It was great using your firm, I would like to thank the staff. A big thank you for everything.”

Mr W Southsea
Cycling accident claims can be complex. Our experienced Personal Injury team's solicitors have experience in handling compensation claims for cyclists that have been injured as a result of an accident that was not their fault.

Cycling accidents may be caused by poor roads or bad driving. We investigate your claim promptly and thoroughly to advise you if the accident was technically someone else's fault. If it was, we can help you with pressing for maximum compensation and with the process of rehabilitation and getting better.

We have successfully represented claims for:

  • Mountain bike accidents
  • Professional cycling accidents  
  • Commuting and leisure cycle accidents
