How can First4Lawyers help?

We understand the impact an accident can have. As well as your physical injuries, there is the shock and the psychological knock to your confidence when out cycling.

Our expert solicitors are very experienced in putting all the facts together to obtain maximum compensation for you. We support you every step of the way and do all the hard work so you can concentrate on your recovery.

We also offer a No Win No Fee* service, so there is no risk or upfront cost when making a claim.

How much compensation will I receive for a cycle accident claim?

That very much depends on your injuries, how it has affected you and the circumstances surrounding the accident.

A relatively minor accident, resulting in whiplash can achieve figures of around £2,500, whereas a head injury is more likely to be awarded up to £11,000.

Our compensation calculator gives an idea of the amounts you could be awarded, but a chat with our legal advisors will give you advice tailored to your individual circumstances.

Is there a time limit for making a claim?

Yes, most personal injury claims have a three-year window in which you can claim. This is why it's so important to start the claim process as soon as you can.

I think I have a claim, what do I do next?
