If you have been injured as a cyclist, you may be entitled to claim compensation.

Lionheart Lawyers have more than 50 years of combined experience in injury law and have an outstanding track record of obtaining compensation for motor vehicle and traffic accidents, including bicycle accidents, on behalf of our clients.

Our expert lawyers will assess your bicycle accident case with great care and attention and identify all claims you may be eligible to make. If your accident involved a motor vehicle, you may be able to make a claim under the NSW Motor Accidents CTP Scheme.

Additionally, you may be eligible to pursue an insurance property damage claim for your damaged bicycle.

If your bicycle accident occurred in the course of your employment, then you may also be eligible for a workers compensation claim.

Examples of bicycle accidents caused by motor vehicles (such as cars, trucks, buses or motorbikes) include:

  • Passing by you too closely or speeding, causing you to come off your bike;
  • Hitting you from behind;
  • Hit-and-run accident, where the at-fault driver failed to stop;
  • Opening a car door unexpectedly and hitting you;
  • Turning or changing lanes without checking blind spots;
  • Reckless driving or road rage causing an accident;
  • Failing to give way when required.

Even if you are unable to identify the vehicle or driver that caused your accident, you may still be entitled to bring a claim under the nominal defendant/insurer scheme, provided that all reasonable attempts have been made to identify the vehicle and/or party at fault. Our experienced lawyers can assist with this process.

The best way to know if your accident claim is eligible for compensation is to talk to us. Our expert injury lawyers will listen to you to understand the circumstances of your cycling accident and how it has affected your life.

There are strict time limits associated with bicycle injury compensation claims, so be sure to contact Lionheart Lawyers for a free consultation as quickly as possible after your accident.

Legal Advice to Cyclists Hit by a Car

If you are a cyclist who has been hit by a motor vehicle, the first thing you should do is seek medical attention. You must also report the accident to the police immediately, as this is a crucial part of the claims process.

The next step is to call the expert team at Lionheart Lawyers for a free initial consultation. Call us before lodging your bicycle accident injury claim so we can ensure you lodge it correctly and maximise your entitlements.

Injuries sustained in bicycle accidents can be extremely serious and have far-reaching consequences.

Examples of cycling accident injuries include:

  • Whiplash or muscle strain;
  • Hand or wrist injury;
  • Leg, ankle or foot injury;
  • Back, shoulder or neck injury;
  • Broken or fractured bones;
  • Sprained or torn ligaments;
  • Internal bleeding;
  • Head or brain injury;
  • Other injury requiring surgery;
  • Psychological injury or illness including PTSD, anxiety or depression.

Claiming Injury Compensation After Bicycle Accident

At first, you may not realise the true extent of your injuries. This could be due to shock or the nature of your injury. It may also be hard for you to assess the full impact of your injuries on your life early on. This is where Lionheart Lawyers can help. Our expertise in injury claims means we understand all too well how a bike accident can affect your daily life, and we know exactly how to obtain the compensation you deserve.

Compensation for bicycle accidents and injuries may cover:

  • Medical expenses;
  • Loss of income if you are unable to work;
  • Reimbursement of travel expenses;
  • Ongoing medical treatment;
  • Pain and suffering;
  • Domestic assistance for day-to-day tasks.

If your injury or impairment is permanent, then you may be entitled to make additional claims, including a TPD (total permanent disability) claim through your superannuation fund.

Importantly, if you have been advised by the CTP Insurer that you sustained a ‘threshold’ (minor) injury and you disagree with this assessment and wish to dispute it, then be sure to contact us to understand your rights.

Dealing with injury and an uncertain future can be stressful for you and your family. Let us ease some of the burden by lodging your claim and managing the process from start to finish. Our no-win, no-fee policy means we will do everything we can to get you the compensation you are entitled to.
