It is sadly a statistical fact that cyclists are more likely to suffer serious injuries following an accident on the road. If you’ve been injured as a result of a bicycle accident, you may be eligible for a compensation claim.

Our solicitors are expert injury lawyers who are experienced in acting for people who have suffered a personal injury due to a cycling accident. We offer a free initial consultation – we will explain your rights and what you can expect throughout the legal process.
Laws in Queensland allow cyclists to seek compensation for their injuries based on a number of factors:
- How the accident occurred
- The seriousness of your injuries
- The effect those injuries will have on your life and lifestyle
You may be eligible to claim compensation for the following:
- Medical expenses
- Hospital expenses
- Assistance in the home
- Other expenses related to your care
- Pain and suffering
Bicycle accidents can occur in a variety of ways, including (but not limited to):
- Sudden opening of car doors (car-dooring)
- Vehicles who cut off or fail to give way to cyclists
- Vehicles who drive in a bicycle lane
- Vehicles who suddenly pull out of driveways
What you do after a bike accident can affect what you can recover when you claim compensation for injuries or damages. Collecting information from those involved in or who witnessed the accident is critical – such as names, phone numbers, drivers license. It is also important to gather supporting information such as photos of the scene and any damage that occurred. Make sure to report the accident straight away with your insurance company or if it’s more serious with the police. Get a medical check up at a hospital or with your doctor in case there are any injuries which are not immediately obvious. And get a quote for any repair needed to fix the damage to your bike.
