Motorbike and Cycling Accidents


Travelling on two wheels is fun, whether it""""s an adventurous long ride on the weekend or a regular commute to and from work. But cyclists vulnerability to casualties is much higher than drivers in automobiles as they are more exposed to the road. In 2018, there were 17,527 bike casualties on Great Britain""""s roads – 4,132 of which were either killed or critically injured.

If you""""ve suffered injuries in a bike accident that was not your fault, you can claim for your wounds and other losses to help get your life back on track.

Who can file a compensation claim?

Anyone who has suffered injuries in a bike accident that wasn""""t their fault such as:

  • Accidents caused by the negligence of another road user.
  • Accidents due to poor road conditions.
  • Accidents due to equipment failure.

How much compensation do I get?

There""s no exact answer to this as the compensation you get depends on the severity of your injuries and the impact they have had on your life. Generally, you can get compensation for the following:

  • Cost of medical treatment.
  • Loss of property.
  • Loss of earnings.
  • Travel expenses associated with your accident and treatment.
  • Cost of repairing your bike.
  • Cost of any extra care or equipment you""ll need.
     

What should I do after a bike accident?

In case of an accident at work, you must follow the guidelines given below:

  • +

    Seeking medical help is the most important thing you should do in the immediate aftermath of an accident. Even minor injuries can become a lifelong condition if not treated properly. Visit a healthcare professional for a full assessment of your injury. The doctor will also record the details of your accident in medical records.

  • +

    Drivers, cyclists and pedestrians can even deny the occurrence of the accident when you have ‘foolproof evidence" like footage of the accident. Capture photos and videos of your accident as clearly as possible.

  • +

    Following an accident, witnesses have an important role in all the legal proceedings. So take the contact details of people who saw your accident. Having records of your accident will be useful during legal proceedings.

Is there a time limit to document a claim?

In the United Kingdom, you must document a claim for compensation within three years of the date of your accident. However, there are a few exceptions to this rule such as:

  1. Children – The 3-year limit doesn""t apply to children under 18 years of age. On the 18th birthday of your child, the 3-year rule comes into effect, so you should file the claim before they turn 21.
  2. Lack of mental capacity – If someone cannot file a claim due to mental inabilities, then the 3-year rule doesn""t apply.

Can I document a bike accident claim on behalf of someone?

Yes, you can!

Bike accidents are dangerous and can easily lead to trauma, brain injuries and even death. You can file a claim on behalf of someone if:

  • They can""t file a claim themselves.
  • They died due to a bike accident.
