There has been an explosion in the popularity of cycling in Ireland over the past decade. This growth has been helped by changing attitudes towards the environment, health and fitness benefits as well as improved access to cycling through public bike schemes like dublinbikes and tax incentives such as the Cycle To Work Scheme. Not to mention the fact that cycling is a great way to get around.
Unfortunately, despite the many benefits associated with cycling, as with any other mode of transport, accidents are inevitable. Most of the bicycle accident claims* we handle are for cyclists knocked off their bikes or hit by a car or van. Obviously we cannot prevent you from being injured as a result of a cycling accident, but as a firm of specialist injury lawyers with vast experience handling all types of cycling accident claims* from those caused by motorists (including uninsured & untraced motorists), buses, HGVs to those caused by animals, road defects/hazards, faulty equipment, etc. we have the necessary expertise and experience to help you.
Bicycle accidents and cycling accident claims* are for a variety of reasons very often more complicated than other types of road traffic accident claims*. But we can help you by providing expert legal advice on whether you are entitled to make a personal injury claim* as a result of your accident. You can speak to a specialist injury solicitor who will be happy to answer your questions, such as:
- Can I make a claim?
- How long will it take?
- What are my chances of success?
- Can I claim for loss of earnings and medical expenses?
- How long do I have to bring a claim?
- How much will it cost?
- Can I still claim even if the motorist was uninsured?
- How much compensation is my claim worth?
- Will I have to go to court?
If you have a valid cycling accident claim* we can help you achieve the best possible result out of your claim* by fighting to ensure that your legal rights are enforced. As a member of the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers (APIL) we pride ourselves on giving you honest, clear and impartial advice.
