Motorcycle/ Bicycle Accident*

Great strides have been made in increasing cycling infrastructure throughout the city and country which highlights the great desire people have to commute in a healthy and environmentally friendly manner. Even with increased awareness of drivers, there are inevitably going to still be some accidents*.

As a rule, cyclists are among our most vulnerable road users and even while wearing Hi-Viz clothing, lights and a helmet are still exposed to a greater level of risk. The best way of preventing an accident* is of course awareness of cars and motorbikes around us and a preparedness to take steps to avoid a collision.

As a cyclist, if you are involved in a road traffic accident*, the first thing that you need to do above all else is to ensure your own health and welfare. Due to your vulnerability, the injuries that you may have sustained can be worse than would be if you were travelling in a car. It is hugely important that you seek medical treatment as necessary following your accident* to assist you in your recovery and direct what treatment you might need.

Our motto is:

“Professionalism, Commitment and Compassion”

To assist in progressing a claim* it is vital that we have all the details of the party responsible for the accident* such as their name, registration number and insurance details. The best way to do this is to take a photograph of their insurance disc which would have a lot of information on it.

It is important to hold on to all receipts for hospital and doctor’s visits, chemist, and physiotherapy expenses so that we can look to recover these costs for you. If you are out of work for a period of time following the accident* for which you are not paid, you are entitled to seek recovery of this also as an out of pocket expense.

We are here to advise and help you in any way we can regarding the procedure involved in a claim for personal injuries*, allowing you to focus on your own recovery. Should you have any queries please feel free to contact us.
