Bicycle Accident Claims in Manchester, Blackburn and Lancashire

It is estimated that around 19,000 cyclists are killed or injured in the UK as a result of a Road Traffic Accident.

With incentives to go green, and many companies offering cycle to work schemes, increasing numbers of people are using a bicycle to get from A to B. Unfortunately, this has also seen a sharp increase in the number of cycle accidents over recent years.

As a cyclist if you've suffered from a Road Traffic Accident that wasn't your fault, you could be entitled to compensation.

As one of the most experienced Road Traffic Accident departments in the North West of England, we can make sure you are taken care of every step of the way. 

For some, riding a bike can be an enjoyable leisure activity and having a healthier lifestyle. For others, it offers an economical way of travelling when compared with the costs of running a car. A number of organisations now offer cycle to work schemes and incentives to go green, making it even more affordable way of commuting.

Unfortunately not without some elements of risks. Cyclists are one of the most vulnerable of our road users.


Specialist Personal Injury Solicitors

Curtis Law Solicitors can help with the following cycling accidents incidents:

  • Involved in a collision with a car
  • Bicycle accident as a result of potholes
  • Poorly maintained roads
  • Faulty equipment

Conditional Fee/Damages Based Agreements

We undertake risk assessments on all such matters and aim to complete the same within 24 hours of receipt of instructions on straightforward matters, or 72 hours of receipt of substantial papers, if applicable. The length of time taken on the risk assessment will vary according to the instructions and papers but we would expect to spend in the region of 30 minutes on straightforward matters. A more accurate timeframe can be given on a  case by case basis if required. We do not charge for the initial risk assessment.

If a matter is accepted it would, as a rule of thumb, be subject to a 25% Success Fee and After the Event Insurance (ATE) Premium deduction. The level of Success Fee and ATE Premium will vary depending on the nature and complexity of the case and the exact Success Fee as a percentage of damages and ATE Premium will be confirmed to you before you sign any retainer with us.

Under the terms of a Conditional Fee/Damages Based Agreement, you would ordinarily only have to pay the Success Fee and ATE Premium yourself. If however, you breach the agreement you would then become responsible for our full costs.
