If you have been injured whilst cycling, the level of compensation that you could be entitled to do will depend on several factors. No two cases are the same, and the compensation for similar injuries can vary drastically depending on the circumstances of the accident and the effect it has on the victim’s life.
For this reason, we always find it best to speak to each client on an individual basis to determine how much compensation they may be entitled to. To chat about your case, or for free advice about claiming bike accident compensation, call our Freephone on 0808 278 9967.
Our legal team has been representing injured cyclists for more than 25 years, and this experience and dedication allows us to provide you with efficient, compassionate and professional service. In addition to recovering as much compensation for you as possible, we will also do our best to aid your recovery and make your claim for compensation straightforward and stress-free.
Special Damages for Cycle Claims
In addition to recovering compensation for the cycling injury itself, Cycle Aid will also negotiate settlements for consequential losses — in other words, any losses you have suffered as a result of your accident in addition to the injury itself. These are also known as “special damages”, and include:
- Medical bills
- Loss of earnings, bonuses or overtime you would otherwise have received
- Travel costs (if you are unable to drive or cycle as a result of your injury)
- Damage to property (your bicycle, and items with you at the time of accident)
- Specialist equipment (I.e. a stairlift)
- Care and assistance from a family member, friend or professional
- Physical rehabilitation and physiotherapy
- Therapy or mental health care for psychological injuries (such as PTSD)
Providing you can prove loss, you may be entitled to cycling accident compensation for several of the above. Keep track of your spending and hold onto any damaged property, as this will make proving loss much easier. In some cases, we may also be able to arrange interim payments if you need help with expenses over the course of your claim for compensation.
