- damage to your bicycle and clothing
- loss of earnings – this is particularly important if you are self-employed

Our personal injury lawyers can help you to gather evidence to support your claim. This can include police reports, medical reports and assessments, video evidence (CCTV), witness statements and repair estimates.

Case Studies: Cycling Accident Victims We Helped
Wimborne, Dorset: A 48-year-old cyclist who needed surgery to his right knee plus a metal plate and four screws in his left leg agreed to £105,000 in compensation after Coles Miller took up his case.
He was initially offered £56,000 by the defendant’s insurer but we helped him to secure a higher compensation offer – even though the three-year limitation had passed.
That £105,000 higher offer included £48,000 in interim damages so the victim didn’t have to wait for the final settlement before getting paid.
The accident happened at a roundabout. The defendant admitted liability after driving at speed and clipping the cyclist’s rear wheel.
Poole, Dorset: Coles Miller helped a cyclist in his 30s to claim £12,000 in compensation after he was knocked off his bike by a car while cycling home from work.
The car driver attempted to deny all responsibility but we obtained CCTV footage from a nearby industrial unit which proved that our client had been telling the truth.
Our client sustained significant head injuries in the crash. He suffered headaches and concentration problems for up to 12 months but was able to make a full recovery.
