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.

Types of Bicycle Accident Compensation Claims

There are a variety of accidents that can lead to bike accident claims including:

  • A collision with another vehicle while commuting
  • A collision with another vehicle during a recreational cycle
  • A fall from a bike due to an unsafe road or pathway
  • 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.

What to do After a Bicycle Accident?

In the immediate aftermath of a Bicycle accident we recommend noting:

  • The exact location of where the accident took place
  • The exact time the bicycle accident took place
  • Everyone who was involved in the accident
  • Exact details of how the bicycle accident happened
  • Details of any Garda that were on the scene along with the incident number
  • Photos of the scene of the accident
  • Any video footage headcam/dash cam of the accident

After you’ve sought medical attention, it’s important to retain records of your injuries. This information is important when you go about seeking compensation claims.

It’s important to remember that depending on the details your bicycle accidents, you may not be able to gather all of the above information. Failure to gather all the above information doesn’t mean you can’t go about seeking a bicycle accident compensation but as a rule of thumb the more information you have the better.
