Sports Cycling Accidents and Claims
At Cycle SOS, we have previously represented many competitive cyclists along with the professionals that coach and train with them.
As cyclists ourselves, we are fully immersed in the world of cycling and know full well the implications that a cycling accident can have on training and performance.
If you are a competitive cyclist who has been involved in a cycling accident, our specialist solicitors can be of assistance to you. As the cyclists’ national helpline, we are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Call us on freephone helpline 0808 100 9995 to receive specialist legal advice, help and support. If we think we can help you pursue a claim and that is what you would like to do, we can then assist you in beginning a claim.
What can I claim for?
For the competitive cyclists that we have previously represented, we have gone on to obtain compensation for not only the injuries they have suffered but also for loss of earnings, medical assistance and damage to their bike and kit.
Since 1988, we have successfully assisted thousands of cyclists in claiming compensation for injuries that they have sustained whilst riding. Whatever the circumstances of your accident, by speaking to our friendly helpline team, we can help you establish if you may be entitled to make a claim.
Limb injuries are common injuries arising from cycling accidents, figures from The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) show that 40% of cyclists involved in accidents suffer arm injuries and 25% suffer leg injuries.
A cycle accident can also often result in a head injury, ranging from minor concussion and cuts to the most severe cases involving life changing injuries such as brain damage. Hospital data compiled by RoSPA shows that over 40% of cyclists, and 45% of child cyclists, suffer a head injury of some sort.
Whatever the injury, we know the impact a cycling accident can have on your life and we’re here to help you recover physically and financially.
What makes Cycle SOS different?
Throughout our time assisting injured cyclists, we have become very prominent in the campaign for safer cycling. To do this, we have worked with Cycling England, the Cycling Demonstration Town project, cycle city expos, training providers, bike mechanics, schools, police and many charities over the years.
We are also keen supporters of competitive cycling and are proud sponsors of COLT City of Lancaster Triathlon Club Juniors; encouraging the uptake of competitive cycling from a young age.
We have also been involved in sponsoring events such as Coast to Coast rides, The Fred Whitton Challenge and Cure Leukaemia’s London 2 Paris: Inspiring the Revolution ride to name a few.
We understand that sustaining an injury through no fault of your own could instantly erase months or even years of training. In the most severe cases, this can mean a devastating end to a career and unfortunately, sometimes even implications on everyday life.
If you have suffered an injury as a result of a competitive cycling accident, we are here to ease the process of recovery. When assisting you with a claim, we will ensure that you are provided with the most effective rehabilitation, medical assistance and physiotherapy.
To begin your cycling accident compensation claim, call our freephone helpline on 0808 100 9995. As the cyclist’s national helpline, we are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and our team are here to help in any way they can.
