Making a cycling accident claim

The UK has seen a huge increase in the number of people getting on two wheels in the last few years. With huge British success at the Tour de France and Olympic cycling competitions, as well as recent lockdown measures, cycling has seen a massive rise in popularity – as both a form of transport and a way to keep fit.

But with more bikes on the road comes more risk to those riding them. In 2019, the Department for Transport (DfT) found that cyclists made up 6% of all fatalities in UK road accidents.

Cyclists were also found to have the second highest casualty rate per billion miles travelled, ahead of pedestrians and all forms of motorists.

If you’ve been hurt in an accident on your bicycle that was caused by someone else, you could be able to make a claim for compensation.

Common cycling accidents and injuries

Cycling can be a fantastic way to keep fit. But riding on the same roads as cars, vans and lorries poses a real risk. In fact, the DfT found that the second most common reason for people not cycling more were road safety concerns.

Most cycling accidents involve another vehicle. The DfT found that in 2018, the most common contributory factor to accidents involving cyclists was driver or rider error or reaction, causing 34% of accidents.

The resulting accidents can include:

  • Being hit at a junction or roundabout
  • Vehicles turning across a cyclist’s path
  • Vehicles emerging from side roads
  • Car doors opening into a cyclist’s path

Road conditions can also pose a threat to cyclists. Potholes and other dangerous road defects will cause a lot more damage to a cyclist than to a motorist. These kinds of bike accidents may not involve another road user but are the responsibility of the local authority or highway agency.

Cyclists are not as protected as car drivers, so accidents can cause significant injuries to cyclists. Some of the most serious are head injuries. The University of Rochester Medical Center has found that head injuries are common among cyclists.

Also common are injuries such as:

  • Broken bones
  • Lacerations
  • Bruising
  • Dislocations

If you’ve been hurt in a cycling accident, you could be able to make a claim against the person or organisation responsible – whether that’s a car driver or the local authority for not maintaining road surfaces.

How much will I receive in compensation for my cycling accident?

For a successful bike injury claim, the compensation you are awarded will be based on your injuries and how they are expected to affect your health and your life.

This means that without an initial consultation with you, it’s difficult to say exactly how much you might be entitled to in cycling accident compensation. Our compensation calculator may be able to give you a rough idea of what you could receive for a bike accident claim. You can also just get in touch with us for free to discuss your claim.

Compensation is split into two parts:

  • General damages

This part compensates you for the pain and suffering you’ve experienced as a result of your cycling accident. It covers any effect your injury has had on your quality of life. For example, general damages take into account whether you’ve had to give up any hobbies – like cycling – or if you’re unable to participate in family life the way you did before your bike accident.

  • Special damages

This reimburses you for the financial impact your accident has had. If you’ve suffered a loss of earnings through being unable to work, special damages will cover that. This part of your compensation will also cover any expenses, such as medical treatment or travel to medical appointments. It also reimburses you for any damaged property, such as your bike or cycling gear.

How long do I have to make a cycling accident claim?

In most cases, you’ll have three years to make a cycling accident claim. But the rules can differ for some.

For example, if you’re claiming on behalf of someone without the capacity to claim for themselves, you won’t face a deadline. Meanwhile, children who have been involved in a bike accident can claim at any point until their 18th birthday, when they will then have three years to begin their claim.

It’s advisable to begin your cycling claim as soon as possible. The earlier you start, the clearer the details of what happened will be in your mind and in the minds of any witnesses or anyone else involved.

You may also find it easier to get certain evidence when you start your claim soon after your bike crash.

What evidence do I need to make a claim?

The stronger your evidence, the stronger your cycling accident claim. That’s why you should ensure you collect certain pieces of evidence if you can.

Make sure you get the names and details of anyone involved in your bike accident and anyone who saw it happen. At the scene of the accident, if possible, you should also take photos and video footage of your bike, the road, any other vehicles and your injury.

You should also inform the police of your accident, as a police report could be a valuable piece of evidence when it comes to making a compensation claim.

Medical evidence is also crucial so ensure you seek out treatment as soon as possible. Your solicitor will also likely arrange for you to have a medical assessment, which will show how serious your injury was and how it might affect you in future.

Your accident solicitor will let you know what evidence you will need to present the strongest case possible.

Road Traffic Accident FAQs

Can passengers claim compensation?

Yes, if you’re a passenger who has been involved in a collision on the road and suffered injuries through no fault of your own, then you’re entitled to make a claim for compensation.

I was hit by an uninsured driver. Can I claim?

Yes, you can make a claim if you were hit by an uninsured driver.

With the help of our panel of solicitors, you can claim through the Motor Insurance Bureau (MIB).

Backed by every motor insurer in the UK, the MIB is a scheme set up to help compensate victims of accidents caused by uninsured and untraced motorists.

How much can I claim for a road traffic accident?

It depends on the type and severity of any injuries sustained.

For those inflicted with minor brain or head injuries, they could receive between £1,940 and £11,200. At the other end of the scale, severe leg injuries could see compensation between £48,080 and £119,210, whereas loss of an arm may mean an award of between £84,310 to upwards of £120,270.

For further examples see our compensation calculator.

Is there a time limit for making a claim?

Generally speaking there is a limit of three years to start a claim, starting from the date of your accident. If you were under the age of 18 when you had your accident, you have until your 21st birthday.

How long will a claim take?

The length of time it will take to make your claim depends on your individual circumstances.

Every case is different, so it’s very difficult to say at the early stages how long the process will be from start to finish.

Once your solicitor has completed their initial investigations into your case, they will be in a better position to advise you on how long the process is likely to take.

To give you a very general idea:

  • For a personal injury claim like minor whiplash, for example, the process could be completed in about six months. But in more complex cases, such as claims involving a trip, slip or fall, it could take over a year to be settled. The process could also be longer if the defendant disputes your claim.

  • Claiming for a work accident could be between six and nine months. But if the injury is more severe, or there are legal complexities, it could take longer.

  • Medical negligence cases tend to take longer as they can be complex with multiple factors and evidence.  A rough estimate would be 18-26 months.

You can contact one of our advisors to discuss your situation.
