Bike Accident Compensation
Within all Irish population centres, there is a vibrant and growing cycling community.
The most recent statistics suggest that over 39,000 people commute to work by bicycle every day.
Any doctor will tell you that cycling is beneficial to health; however, more cyclists on roads means more bicycle accidents.

- An accident while mountain biking
Should you claim bike accident compensation?
Unlike so many other road users’ cyclists, typically aren’t covered by insurance. Thus a serious accident is not only detrimental to a person’s health, it can also have a devastating effect on a person’s finances.
After a bicycle accident a person may be forced to pay for expensive medical bills. The injuries may also cause the person to miss work leading to a loss of earnings.
Cyclists are exposed to impact with the vehicle, and the impact with the road. Typically cyclists wear less protective clothing than motorcyclists which means a person’s injures can be more severe.
