Serious cycling injury?

Get expert help to rebuild your life

There has been a surge in the popularity of cycling in recent years, but cyclists remain amongst the most vulnerable of our road users. In fact, government statistics show that cyclists accounted for 6 per cent of all road accident fatalities and 15 per cent of all serious injuries. Whilst the weather, road conditions and equipment can be factors in some cycling injuries, the most serious injuries and fatalities usually involve other road users.

At Serious Law, we specialise exclusively in serious injury cases. Over the last 25 years, we’ve worked on hundreds of No Win No Fee cases involving cyclists and we’ve achieved many successful multi-million pound serious injury compensation awards. Several of our solicitors are cyclists, so we understand the challenges that cyclists face and relate to our clients’ accident circumstances.

Whatever happened to cause your injury, the sooner you or a member of your family gets in touch with us, the better. We have a track record of success in difficult and disputed liability cases, and in cases where cyclists weren’t wearing a helmet at the time of their accident.

More than compensation – a service tailored to you

Getting the right solicitor with the right depth of serious injury expertise to support you and your family is incredibly important, as it has a bearing on the quality of life that you will enjoy in future.

Each serious cycling accident case is different, so at Serious Law, we use our years of experience to help you and your family to manage all the challenges you face. For example, to give you peace of mind and financial stability, we work to secure interim payments whilst carefully assessing the full future implications of your injury for you and your family. We can also help to arrange your care, physiotherapy and rehabilitation, and organise any housing and transport adaptations – all tailored to your specific needs.

Over the years, the Serious Law team has built excellent relationships with many of the country’s leading bicycle accident reconstruction and serious injury health and rehabilitation professionals. Their knowledge, together with our depth of serious injury and cycling accident legal expertise is a formidable combination – it means that we put the right things in place for our clients at the right time, and achieve the maximum award settlements they need to rebuild their lives.

Although from a keen cycling family we had not been involved in any serious road traffic accidents. So when I was knocked off my bike, it was unfortunately a new and very unpleasant experience for me and my family.
From the moment we contacted Serious Law we were put fully at ease. They are professional, caring and have the experience to understand the situation we were in. Should we ever find ourselves in a similar situation, I wouldn’t consider going anywhere else."
Jan, serious cycling injury client

More than that though, our solicitors are caring professionals. As serious injury legal experts, we have worked through the compensation process hundreds of times, but we understand that it is all new and sometimes completely overwhelming for our clients and their families.

At Serious Law, our solicitors take the time to explain what is happening and why. We provide reassurance to you and your family at every stage, so you can feel comfortable about asking any question, any time.

We think our serious injury credentials set us apart from other law firms, as does the care and the commitment that we offer to our clients.
