Both our and your immediate priority will be to attend to your immediate physical well-being, or that of a loved one.
Immediate health concerns should be assessed and catered for, or unfortunately, long-term provision for care and support must be investigated and made for the future needs of the injured person. Only then, thoughts rightly should focus on the level of compensation that can be expected following an injury caused through a cycling accident.
We have successfully recovered substantial levels of compensation for cyclists whose lives have been devastated by serious bicycle accidents and for the families of those tragically killed whilst cycling.
Our main priority is on getting you all the support you need throughout your recovery, including the best medical care and rehabilitation. We will then pursue a financial package sufficient for your full range of needs, and where possible getting you back on your bike.
Our Bicycle Accident Compensation Calculator may be useful in helping you understand the bracket of 'general damages' that injuries sustained, could be classified at.
If you have been injured in a cycling accident you may be looking for free legal advice on how much compensation your claim is worth. Contact us today to talk to one of our fully qualified personal injury solicitors.

Paul Rossiter LLB Law
I qualified as a solicitor in 1998 and worked as a Personal Injury Specialist throughout my legal career, dealing with high value serious injury cases obtaining both compensation and rehabilitation for my clients. I was a member of APIL (Association Of Personal injury Lawyers) and recognised by the Law Society as being a Senior Personal Injury Solicitor.
After working in various law firms, both small high street firms and a larger practice in Manchester, I saw a gap in the market for a high quality practice that had the same core high street values of being personable and approachable and combining them with the efficiency and professionalism of a larger practice. PSR Solicitors was therefore established in 2009 and since then PSR Solicitors has provided high quality legal services to local clients throughout North Wales and Cheshire.
I live in Chester with my young family and 2 dogs and enjoy regular holidays along the coast of North Wales and Ibiza.
I have recently been asked to join the board of trustees at Platform For Life, a mental health counselling charity in Chester. Good mental health is the foundation of a more fulfilled, happy and healthy life, yet many families struggle to access the help and support they need to achieve it. Platform for Life offers free local counselling and play therapy for families who would otherwise not be able to afford it.

When making a cycling accident & injury claim, calculating the compensation you are expected to receive can be a complex procedure. This is primarily dependent on the severity of your injuries and the influence this has on your immediate and future life.
As with all compensation claims, the process should not be conducted hastily in any way. The full detail surrounding the accident, liability, scale of injuries, financial implications (short and long-term), and lasting healthcare considerations must all be factored into compensation settlements.
On some occasions, it is absolutely necessary to allow the injured person time to recover. They may also need time for more accurate assessments by medical experts and professionals to be made in order to suitably quantify the injury fully before the claim is valued. We can then aim to secure the compensation settlement value from the third party responsible for your injury.
The following considerations must receive focus when considering compensation claim settlement amounts:
This is a commonly asked question. However, as each cycling accident claim is unique it is almost impossible to identify how much the claimant will receive at the very outset of any injury claim process.
As highlighted, numerous factors must be taken into account, and each of these areas would be carefully investigated by one of our expert Bicycle Accident Solicitors here at PSR.
The guide provides provisional 'general' damages compensation values as set out in the Judicial College Guidelines (JCG) for personal injury claims. General damages are meant to compensate for general pain & suffering caused by the injuries sustained by the cyclist.

Cycling accidents are becoming more and more common in Great Britain. In fact, cyclists are now known to be among the most susceptible road users. Bicycle accidents can cause a wide range of injuries.
These can vary in severity, from small scrapes and bruises to broken bones, head and brain injuries, and other serious injuries. Unfortunately, with the increasing number of cyclists on the roads, fatal accidents can occur too.
Being involved in a bicycle accident is an extremely upsetting experience and can cause life-long injuries. Not only are some people left less active and less confident as a result of being involved in a cycling accident: where extreme injuries are sustained. you may also have been reliant on your loved ones or healthcare professionals.
The amount of people cycling in Great Britain is increasing annually. Whilst these numbers are positive for the environment and great for cycling as a sport, unfortunately, cyclists in this country are still very much vulnerable road users.
According to The National Travel Survey, around 8% of the population aged 5 and over, cycle three or more times a week. This calculates to approximately 5.1 million people regularly cycling.
We can’t stop accidents from happening, but we are experts in dealing with cycling accident claims for compensation. We will support you and your family throughout the process, usually on a no win no fee basis.
In the UK there are nearly 15,000 incidents a year where an injury occurs to cyclists with just over 100 incidents involving a fatality.
NHS data suggests that more than 40% of cyclists involved in an accident suffered from head injuries, ranging from serious skull fractures to minor cuts and concussion.
Statistics taken from The Department for Transport Casualty Report identify the main contributing factors for cycling accidents:
Common causes of road cycle accidents involve nearside junctions and roundabouts, motor vehicles pulling out from driveways, vehicle doors opening into the path of the cyclist, vehicles pulling out of queuing traffic. The collisions that cause the most serious injuries, in our experience with compensation for bicycle accidents, is when cyclists have been hit from behind.
Nearly half of all the cycle accidents we deal with occur at junctions. Whilst just a small percentage occur in the dark and even fewer occur on wet surfaces. In more cases than not, cycling road accidents can be avoided and regularly are the fault of the vehicle driver, not the cyclist.
Cycle lane accidents often take place when vehicles other than bicycles use the cycle lanes or where an obstruction is found in the cycle lane. Although cycle lanes are clearly marked as to be used by cyclists only, they are commonplace for accidents to take place. It could be that car drivers use cycling lanes for overtaking other vehicles or they are using the lane as a place to temporarily stop whilst dropping off passengers. This in turn can cause cyclists to swerve into the path of other road users.
Potholes can cause problems for any road user but are a major hazard for cyclists, in particular. One of the issues with claiming for injury following an accident to a cyclist caused by a pothole is in the definition of what constitutes a pothole. The deciding factor is in the depth of the hole in the road surface.
We all know that accidents will happen when children are involved. We can all accept a fall off a bike and a bruise somewhere as an unrelated accident. However, when a more serious accident takes place because of someone else’s carelessness and negligence resulting in your child being seriously hurt, you will want justice to be done.
Making a claim for compensation on behalf of your child is not dissimilar from making a claim that you have suffered. You will be required to act on your child’s behalf if they are under the age of 18. The settlement claim that is awarded will be invested by the court until your child reaches their 18th birthday.
At PSR solicitors, we are fully aware of the dangers that roundabouts present to cyclists. Roundabouts are a common location for accidents for all road users and for this reason, they can present a serious hazard to cyclists.
We have previously represented many competitive cyclists and have been involved in a number of claims made by those involved in a coaching role and training athletes. We are fully aware of the implications that a cycling accident can have on training and performance.
