Cycling is becoming increasing popular in Britain, boosted by the Olympic Legacy and government initiatives to get more people on their bikes. For many, cycling is now not just a hobby, but their primary means of transport. Sadly, without changes to current infrastructure and clear rules or legislation to protect cyclists, our busy roads can prove to be extremely hazardous and this may lead to serious accidents.
In England alone, over 15,000 cyclists are killed or injured in reported road traffic accidents each year. As cyclists lack the protection afforded to the occupants of motor vehicles, such as seat belts and airbags, they are particularly at risk of suffering serious injuries from cycle accidents. Added to the dangers presented by traffic collisions on the roads, there are also ground level hazards which can cause cycle accidents to occur, including poorly maintained roads, obstructions in cycle lanes and slippery surfaces caused by spillages. Cyclists can often feel isolated following a cycle accident and can be hesitant to pursue a claim for compensation as, unlike car owners, they do not have the protection of motor insurance cover.
Whether you have sustained physical or psychological injuries, Macks are at hand to help you get back on track as soon as possible by helping you to make a cycle claim. We will also deal with any financial losses, including compensation to repair or replace your bike. Our clients can choose their own repair service, or we can recommend a service from our network of highly reputable cycle shops. Even if the other person is uninsured, or left the accident before you could take the other person’s details, we can still pursue a claim on your behalf through the Motor Insurance Bureau.

What can I claim for?
The precise amount of hat you can claim for will depend on the nature of your accident. Our lawyers will examine your claim thoroughly to ensure that we secure compensation for every aspect of your accident and injuries. Depending on the circumstances, we can seek compensation for:
- Physical injuries
- Psychological injuries
- Any immediate medical treatment needed

We will discuss all of this in detail with you at the beginning of your claim.
What if I was partially to blame for the accident?
Even if you think that you may have been partially at fault for your accident, it is still worth contacting our team to see if you can make a claim. Often victims cycle accidents find that, after talking to us, they realise that they were not actually to blame for their accident. Even if it turns out that you were partially at fault, we may still be able to claim a portion of the compensation on your behalf.
I was hit by an uninsured driver/I was the victim of a hit and run accident. Can I still make a claim?
If you were unfortunate enough to be the victim of a hit and run, did not manage to get the other road user’s details or were hit by an uninsured driver, then it is still possible to make a claim. We will process your claim through the Motor Insurers’ Bureau, which ensures that victims of such accidents do not lose out.
Will I have to go to court to obtain compensation?
Our lawyers prepare all of our cases extremely thoroughly, so that the vast majority of cycle claims can be settled outside of court. In the very rare instance that our clients have to attend court, we make sure that everything is thoroughly prepared, to cause you the least stress possible.
