Expert Legal Help for Cycling Accident Claims in Wirral

If you have been injured in a cycling accident in Wirral, it’s crucial to be aware of our rights and the steps involved in making a successful bicycle accident claim.

Understanding the legal framework and seeking compensation for injuries, property damage, and other losses resulting from an accident are essential.

In this comprehensive blog post, we will provide you with a detailed outline of the process, enabling you to navigate the complexities of bicycle accident claims confidently.

Common bicycle accident injuries

Cycling accidents can result in a range of injuries, including broken bones, cuts, bruises, head injuries, spinal injuries, and even fatalities.

Head injuries, in particular, are a major concern as they can result in serious and life-long consequences, including brain damage, cognitive problems, and permanent disabilities.

At AClaim, we believe that if you have suffered an injury as a result of someone else’s carelessness while cycling, you are entitled to compensation to help cover the costs of your recovery.

An injury claim can be filed if a person is injured on a bike due to bicycle component failure, being knocked by a vehicle, or being thrown from their bicycle after hitting a pothole.

Understanding cyclist traffic laws

In the United Kingdom, cyclists are subject to specific traffic laws and regulations.

Negligence plays a significant role in bicycle accident claims. Being able to prove that the other party involved in the accident acted negligently will strengthen your claim.

Evidence such as photographs, dash cam footage, witness statements, and police reports are important to support your case.

Our team will be able to assess your case and determine if you can make a compensation claim.

I was out on my motorbike and got hit by a van on the wrong side of the road and the driver was drunk. Gary came to visit me at my home - 200 miles away! so he could find out what happened and help me claim compensation. Thanks to Gary I no longer have to worry about how I'm going to pay my mortgage or support my family financially while I'm getting treatment.
Highly recommend Gary

I was fortunate enough to have Gary at AClaim step in and handle my motorbike accident claim. To say that Gary's expertise and dedication impressed me would be an understatement. In just a matter of days, he achieved more progress with my case than the previous solicitor managed in 18 months.

AClaim came highly recommended to me by someone at the bike club. I suffered a life-changing accident after I was hit by someone running a red light at nearly 50mph. The first accident I've had in 42 years of riding!! As a result I can no longer ride. The decision to hang up my biking gear was a difficult one, but AClaim's guidance and support have made navigating this challenging time a bit easier. Thank you to Gary and the team for everything you have done.
So glad I found AClaim

I had a pretty nasty motorcycle accident, and the solicitor my insurance company assigned to my case didn't seem very interested in fighting my case. That's when I got in touch with Gary at AClaim, thanks to a recommendation. Gary provided solid advice and went above and beyond in helping me arrange private medical support and rehabilitation. He worked tirelessly and thanks to him my claim ended up being a big success. I can't sing Gary's praises enough. He genuinely cares about his clients and their well-being.
Great service
