Injured in a bike accident?
If you are injured in a bike accident you may be able to make a cycling accident compensation claim and be entitled to a range of benefits. The circumstances of your bike accident will determine the legal options available to you.
Why do you need to see a lawyer?
If you are injured while cycling, it is important that you seek independent legal advice at the earliest opportunity. It is imperative that your legal rights are protected.
Compulsory Third Party (CTP) and other relevant insurers will conduct their own investigations shortly after an accident to protect their legal interests.
