Bicycle Accidents Claims

Contact us

Injured in a cycling accident?

If you are injured in a cycling accident you may be able to make a cycling claim and be entitled to a range of benefits and compensation. The circumstances of your cycling accident will determine the legal options available to you.

This includes cycling accidents by car-dooring and accidents caused by potholes.

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.

By working with us

By working with us you will know of:

  • any insurance scheme applicable to you
  • the range of benefits and lump sum compensation available
  • the legal process and estimated time table for obtaining compensation
  • the time limits applicable to your claim
  • the process of conducting investigations to ensure evidence is collected when it is fresh and available
  • our No Win - No Fee* arrangement and estimate of the fees you will be required to pay at the conclusion of your claim 
  • the likelihood of success in your claim

Compensation claims and insurance schemes are extremely complex and it is critical that you obtain advice from a lawyer with extensive experience to ensure that you are aware of the full range of entitlements available to you.

Why come to Slater and Gordon?

Many of our senior lawyers are highly experienced in managing cycling claims.

By choosing an accredited lawyer with extensive experience in cycling claims, you can expect the highest quality legal services and the best possible results. 

Where appropriate, we appoint reputable experts, such as engineers, who will examine the accident circumstances and provide a comprehensive report as to how the accident occurred. In addition, we engage quality medical experts who can assess how an injury is likely to affect you over the course of your life. 

Our lawyers are not only committed to helping you access compensation, but are dedicated to pursuing insurers for important rehabilitative benefits such as physiotherapy, domestic assistance and gym memberships to help improve your quality of life.  

How will I pay for the legal fees?

Slater and Gordon's No Win - No Fee* scheme is generally available for transport accident claims. This means you do not pay for professional fees unless your case is successful.

The scheme is designed to help those whose financial circumstances might otherwise deny them access to legal representation.

You will receive a document setting out the details of the scheme after your first appointment. We are not retained as your lawyers until the document is signed and return to us.
