What are the most common causes of cycling accidents? 

Cycling accidents can be caused in lots of different ways. When you’re on two wheels, it often feels like the world is against you, and it’s a struggle against other road users, cars, motorcycles, or poor road surfacing. MG Legal’s expert cycling injury solicitors have dealt with hundreds of injured cyclists, and always worked hard to ensure they receive the maximum compensation for what are often life changing injuries.  
 
 
 
The most common causes of road traffic accidents involving cyclists that our expert road traffic accident solicitors deal with include: 

Have you been injured in the last three years? 

How much compensation will I receive if I am injured in a cycling accident? 

Every one of MG Legal’s clients are different, the injuries they sustain vary, as do the effects on their lives. Personal injury compensation, often called general damages, is based upon the nature and severity of the injuries sustained, and to the area of the body affected. Every cycling accident is different, and everybody can sustain different injuries in a cycling accident.  
 
Whether it's a broken bone, a hip injury, a knee injury, a back injury, or any other kind of bodily harm, you could receive significant financial compensation for your injury.  
 
MG Legal’s expert cycling accident compensation solicitors will always ensure that the best medical treatment is sought for our injured clients, and a detailed medical report will be compiled from an industry leading expert, detailing all of your injuries, and how your life has been affected as a result of the cycling accident. Compensation is broken down into two parts- General Damages, and Special Damages. See a full overview of these terms, and the differences between the two, here.  

Our cycling accident solicitors take ZERO deductions from the damages achieved: 

At many other solicitors firms, up to 25% of the total amount of damages received in your claim will be taken by the firm itself. However, here at MG Legal, we are different than the others. 
 
When you instruct our specialist cycling accident solicitors, then we will take ZERO deductions from the special damages that we achieve on your behalf. This allows you to keep as much money as possible from your claim, and have enough money to replace damaged bikes, equipment, and any lost earnings.

How long does a cycling accident personal injury claim take to settle? 

Every personal injury claim is different, and the length of time to settlement, depends upon the injuries sustained, and if the third party admits liability for cycling accident. What we ask our clients to bear in mind, is that if you have suffered a more serious injury, then more medical reports may be required, in order that your ongoing injuries are fully documented, and you receive the maximum amount of compensation for your claim for personal injury. If you are badly injured, and need money to get back on your feet, MG Legal can request an interim payment on your behalf, in settlement of your personal injury claim, if liability has been admitted.  

How much is my cycling accident claim worth? 

When you are making a personal injury cycling accident claim, you are more than likely interested in how much your claim may be worth. The claim will be broken up into a number of different damages, many of which are calculated on an individual basis.  
 
In terms of the injuries alone, known as general damages, our personal injury solicitors have put together the below table outlining how much different injury claims are worth, with reference to the Judicial College guidelines.

How long do I have to make a cycling accident compensation claim? 

The Limitation Act 1980 states that, in most cases at least, an injured party has 3 years to make a claim for personal injury compensation. Minors, meaning children under the age of 18, have 3 years from the date of their 18th birthday. Time limits also may differ if you are acting on behalf of someone with limited mental capacity, if you are acting as guardian or subject a lasting power of attorney.

Cyclist Accident case study: 
 
Over their 30 years of experience, our expert personal injury solicitors specialising in road traffic accidents have settled thousands of cycling accident claims for our clients, and won hundreds of thousands of pounds worth of financial compensation on their behalf. One of the most recent cases that our expert team worked on, and settled for our client, was for a client who was hit by a car and knocked off of her bike. 
 
Our client, Mrs B, was riding her bike on the road, when the vehicle cut in front of her to turn left at a junction, without properly looking in their mirrors for cyclists. Mrs B was knocked off her bike, which was subsequently run over by the vehicle driver. 
 
She suffered from a number of cuts and muscle stretches across her body, for which she attended her local 
A&E department as well as her local GP surgery. On top of these injuries, Mrs B’s road bike was damaged beyond repair, and her clothing and attire were also damaged. 
 
From the second that Mrs B got in contact with MG Legal’s expert personal injury solicitors, who accepted her case on a NO WIN NO FEE basis, her designated solicitor specialising in road traffic accidents got to work on building her claim. They acted quickly to establish negligence on behalf of the car driver, in the form of them failing to apply the breaks of their vehicle, driving into the path of the claimant’s bike, and failing to looking properly. 
 
After getting in touch with the insurance provider of the driver, and informing them of our ability to act on behalf of Mrs B to retrieve the financial compensation that she deserved, our client’s designated road traffic accident solicitors got to work on establishing the amount of compensation that she should receive, in both general and special damages. 
 
After doing so, they worked out the claim for her personal injuries to be worth £5000, her bike replacement at £2000, and her clothing replacement at £200. They built the case to be so strong that the third party insurance provider accepted liability, and paid out to our client, allowing us to settle the claim and prevent it from needing to go to court. 
 
Because our road traffic accident experts are so successful at building strong claims, they have a success rate of over 99%. This meant that Mrs B received the financial compensation that she deserved, and was able to do so without having to take days out of her life to attend court proceedings. Her designated road traffic accident solicitor handled everything for her, including all of the paperwork and correspondence, keeping the process completely stress-free for our client.
