When an oncoming car turns right across the path of a cyclist leaving them with nowhere to go but into the negligent driver's car, leading to the dreaded phrase "sorry mate, I didn’t see you". There is often a ‘frank’ exchange of words where the cyclist points out to the motorist that quite obviously s/he was there to be seen!
Another common cause of cycle accidents is the instance where a driver emerges through ‘Give Way’ markings to the left or right of the correctly proceeding cyclist, often through slow moving or queueing traffic, effectively ‘T boning’ the poor cyclist and taking them out. Yet another "Sorry mate, I didn't see you" or ‘SMIDSY’ moment.
We’ve all been there; one minute you’re cycling along without a care in the world, the next your face is kissing the tarmac, leaving you with a bashed-up bike. We specialise in pothole claims and our success rate in recovering damages for both bike and body is unrivalled.
We are all so careful when entering/exiting a roundabout, but motorists routinely fail to see us because they are so intent on looking for other motorists. Although these are often disputed/complicated claims, we are successful in over 95% of cases.
Paul was knocked off his bike after a car emerged from a side road to his left straight into his path. Paul called us to help him recover money for his bicycle, which was unfortunately written off. In addition to recovering the money for his bike, we also recovered money for his personal injury, and also all of his clothing which was damaged in the accident. Paul used an independent cycle shop in Chesterfield to replace his damaged items.
Andy had been unfortunate enough to be involved in not one but two accidents which we helped him successfully recover money for his bike(s) kit, and injuries. He was initially recommended our services by his local cycle shop In Colliers Wood , and because of our successful recovery on his first claim, he came back to us again for help with his second claim.
