FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

  • What can I do to get my bike repaired?

If you have been involved in a cycling accident, it is likely that your bicylce will have sustained damage or be a complete write off.

Take your bicycle to a repair shop where they will then determine the extent of the damage and advise on whether it can be repaired or not. They will provide a written quote for the repairs or alternatively if the bicylce is beyond repair advise on the replacement cost. You will need to retain copies of the estimates if you intend on making a claim for bike damage.

  • What to do immediately after the accident?

Always ensure that the Police are called to the scene of the accident. The police will then take a statement from you as well as the other party, and witnesses. Ensure that you report any injuries you have sustained. Take photographs of the bicycle and retain evidence including clothing and possessions as it may need to be inspected. If your accident has involved a pothole, then take photos of the length, depth and width.

Obtain details of the driver and any witnesses, including a full name, contact telephone number, address and vehicle registration plate as well as details of their insurer. Attend a GP surgery or hospital for medical attention and ensure that your inquiries are recorded. Seek legal advice from a solicitor specialising in cycling claims who has good knowledge of road accidents.

  • What can I claim for?

After an accident, you are entitled to recover compensation for pain, suffering and loss of amenity for your injuries. In addition, you may incur travel expenses, loss of earnings (if you have had to take time off work as a result of your injuries), medical and prescription costs, care and assistance received from family members or friends as well as treatment including physiotherapy or counselling and damage to possessions. You may also be entitled to recover future losses. This list is not exhaustive so if you have incurred a loss and are unsure whether you can recover it then just ask your solicitor. Do ensure that you retain copies of receipts and invoices for proof of payment.

  • Rehabilitation

It is likely that after a road accident, you will be suffering from the effects of your injuries. Rehabilitation may be funded by the driver’s insurer if liability is admitted to address physical and psychological symptoms and ensure that you recover as quickly as possible. As assessment would be conducted, with a physical examination to determine mobility and range of motion and then recommendations made for treatment such as physiotherapy. If liability is denied by the driver’s insurer, then they may be unwilling to find rehabilitation. However, you can always seek a referral from your GP via the NHS for treatment.
