No hidden fees – we focus on outcomes, not profits


Supporting you and your family after a cycling collision

As cyclists are more vulnerable than other road users, injuries can often require extensive treatment, rehabilitation and ongoing support. Making a claim for compensation can help to speed up the treatment process and can also lessen the financial burden and the strain on you and your family for any long-term care needs.

We don't just fight for the maximum amount of compensation for you, but we also have rehabilitation and support coordinators, who are clinically trained, working alongside your legal team helping you to access the full wraparound support you and your family need. We're here to advocate for you, ensuring that your voice is heard and that you receive the support you need to recover and rebuild your life.


There are no hidden costs and we don’t claw back shortfall fees, meaning you keep more of your compensation


Dedicated rehabilitation & support coordinators to help you access the specialist help you need

Working with organisations to support people after road crashes

We work closely with RoadPeace, and the Road Victims Trust to support people who have been bereaved or seriously injured in road crashes. 

As part of our work with RoadPeace in the West Midlands, we created an anthology of stories, poems and drawings of people impacted by road death. The anthology aims to support those who find themselves bereaved after road death, as well as a call for change and a call for society to stop accepting these needless deaths.

Our Process

Guiding people through the legal process

Making a claim for compensation can not only help you with any financial problems you might be facing as a result of being unable to work but also help you to receive the specialist support you need, allowing you to achieve your best possible outcome.

Free meeting without the need to go ahead with a claim
We’ll come to see you face to face wherever you feel comfortable to find out more about you and your family, what you’re worried about and how we can start helping you. We’ll also talk to you about how your case can be funded, so you’ll have peace of mind and reassurance that making a claim won’t cost you money, even if your claim isn’t successful. We don’t believe in taking money off injured people like some other firms, so there are no hidden charges
Introduce our Rehabilitation and Support Team
Once we understand what’s worrying you, our Rehabilitation and Support Team will be in touch to understand more about your needs and to help you access the urgent support you need. The team include health and social care professionals who can help to plug any gaps in your care. They’re on hand to help with discharge planning and making sure you have everything you need to go home safely. We’ve also got an emergency fund to help pay for any initial care, aids and equipment you might need.
Contact the other side to get the ball rolling
We’ll send a letter of claim to the defendant insurers—this is basically a letter telling them what’s happened and why we think they’re responsible. It’s important we make contact with the defendant insurers as soon as possible to make sure your claim can move forward without any delays. They’re allowed time to look into what’s happened and tell us if they admit they’re to blame, they think they’re partly to blame, or they deny blame all together. Sometimes, there’s no response at all. However, while they’re doing this, we’ll be working with them to try and get funding for private rehabilitation to help your recovery from the very beginning of the claim.
Asking for interim payments
You might be worried about the impact your injuries have had on you and money worries if you can’t work. While steps one to three are ongoing, we’ll also be asking the defendant insurers for interim payments. These are payments that you get as soon as possible before your case has settled that can help pay for any suggested treatment, help with any financial worries you might have about paying your rent or mortgages, or paying bills, and to put in place a full treating and care team, helping to make sure you achieve your best possible outcome.
Gathering evidence
Next, we’ll start gathering the evidence. This could be to help prove that the other person involved was to blame (known as liability) and medical evidence to show what injuries you have, that these injuries were caused by the incident and how they’ve affected your life (known as causation and quantum). Liability evidence could be CCTV or police reports, and medical evidence includes your hospital or GP records, as well as reports from medical experts who specialise in your injuries.
Getting you the rehabilitation you need
As we carry on gathering all the information to build your case, we’ll be working alongside professionals who are specialists in your injuries to look at how we can support you and get you the best recovery possible. We do this by organising the highest quality rehabilitation and treatment for your specific needs. We’ll keep working with the defendant insurers to get all this funded for you while your claim is still ongoing so that you don’t have to wait.
Working out how much your claim is worth
After gathering all the evidence, we’ll also calculate how much your claim should be worth. We’ll look at what losses you’ve had since your injuries including from not being able to work, as well as any losses you’ll experience in the future. We’ll also think about all the things you’ll need now and in time to come, including things like care packages, treatment, aids, equipment, changing your home so it works better for you, and any number of others things that might be important to you (for example getting back to a hobby you love or sourcing an adapted holiday home for you to enjoy time with your family).
Fighting for your best possible outcome
Throughout your whole case we’ll be negotiating with the defendants—whether it’s to get them to accept they’re to blame, agree to release some interim payments to help with your recovery or discussing how much compensation you should get. We’ll always fight for your best possible outcomes.
Lifelong support
Even after your case has settled, we’re still here for you. Our specialist Court of Protection team can help you if your family member can’t manage their own affairs anymore, or we can set up a Personal Injury Trust to make sure you can still claim the benefits you need. We’re also here to help with financial advice to make sure your compensation lasts you for the rest of your life.

See all FAQ's

Can I claim compensation for a cycling collision?

If your cycling collision was caused by someone else’s mistake, you may be able to claim compensation for the injuries you’ve sustained. Whether it was as a result of another vehicle, defective equipment or due to poor conditions on road and cycling lanes, you should speak with a specialist solicitor who will be able to advise you about making a claim and your prospects of success.

How much compensation can I claim for?

The amount of compensation you can claim is based on several different things and isn’t just about the pain and suffering you’ve experienced as a result of your injuries. A claim will be made up of different elements, including any loss of earnings you’ve experienced or will experience in the future, specialist aids and equipment you might need, to pay for any care and support, as well as private treatment and rehabilitation to help with your recovery.

What can I claim for after a cycling crash?

As well as the pain and suffering you’ve experienced as a result of your injuries and the elements mentioned above, you can also claim for other things including:

  • Paying for any repairs to your bike and equipment or to purchase new equipment
  • Any adaptations you might need to your home to improve your mobility and independence
  • Travel expenses to attend medical appointments
  • Any other expenses you incur as a result of your injuries

I was not wearing a helmet; will this affect my compensation claim?

Not wearing a helmet doesn’t mean that you will not be able to claim compensation. However, failing to wear a helmet can sometimes impact the amount of compensation you receive. This is because there may be a finding of contributory negligence in the case. This basically means that if you are found to have contributed to your injuries as a result of your actions, your compensation may be reduced proportionally to the level you are found to be responsible. Your solicitor will be able to explain this in more detail to you and advise on whether there may be any findings of contributory negligence.

Contact us for advice: 0800 612 8196

What happens if the vehicle that caused the crash didn’t stop?

You can still make a claim even if the vehicle that caused the crash didn’t stop at the scene. If you have been involved in a hit and run case, your claim will be processed through the Motor Insurers’ Bureau (MIB).

Contact us for advice: 0800 612 8196

How long do I have to make a claim?

Generally, you have three years from the date of the incident to bring a claim. There are some circumstances where this time can be extended, such as when the injured person lacks capacity or if they are under 18-years-old. However, it’s recommended to seek legal advice as soon as possible after a crash.

Contact us for advice: 0800 612 8196

Do I have to pay legal fees?

Your cycling collision claim will be taken on a no win no fee basis, meaning you do not have to worry about the financial costs of making a claim. If your claim is successful, the insurance company of the person you are claiming against will pay your compensation, along with your legal fees. If your claim isn’t successful, you will not have to pay these legal fees yourself.
