Bicycle Accident

The implications from a road traffic accident involving being knocked off a bicycle can be anything from cuts and bruises to serious head injury, spinal injuries, and in the most severe cases, loss of life.

Making an accident compensation claim is a reasonable and straightforward process, so if you have been injured in a cycling accident, you could be entitled to claim cycle injury compensation if:

You will not only get the compensation you deserve for the injuries after the accident but also, we will recover loss of income and out of pocket expenses including damaged bikes, equipment and clothing.

I’M NOT SURE IF MY INJURY IS SERIOUS ENOUGH

Almost any road accident is a traumatic event. As your body is in shock you don’t feel pain.

Some injuries after the accident can be minor; others can have very subtle signs. Early on, people may look well and problems may be missed by patients and doctors. With an accident, you need to be on the lookout for injuries with delayed symptoms.

If you are not sure whether the road accident related injury was serious enough speak to one of our accident claims advisers and we will see if you are entitled to compensation.

WHAT WILL LITKRAFT NEED FROM YOU?

To start your case, we will need to know the following:

  • the date of the accident, where and how it happened;

  • proof of your loss of earnings and other financial expenses which are the result of your injury;
  • any documents that can be used to support your claim.

Keep a full record of any expenses you incur as a result of your accident. This may include the cost of medical treatment, travel involved in obtaining medical treatment, and even costs incurred by your family traveling to visit you whilst you recover.
