If you are a cyclist you will be well aware of the dangers and hazards that exist on UK roads, and if you have experienced an accident, specialist bicycle accident claim solicitors Ison Harrison are here to help you.
We have over 40 years’ experience in successfully representing victims of road traffic accidents, whether that’s pedestrian accidents, motorcycle accidents or bicycle accidents. In all cases you need trusted and reliable legal advice and medical support, and as a nationally-renowned personal injury firm, Ison Harrison can provide that.
Have you recently suffered a bicycle accident?
Unlike a car, a bicycle provides no protection in the event of an accident, so a cyclist is particularly vulnerable on the road and while it is up to the rider to be appropriately dressed and with good visibility, even these precautions can’t always protect an innocent cyclist from serious injury. Despite changes in the Highway Code introduced in January 2022 to further protect cyclists on the road, the majority of bicycle accidents are caused by vehicle driver negligence, such as:
- Driver not paying attention
- Driving too fast
- Driving under the influence of alcohol
- Driving under the influence of drugs
- Drivers ignoring lights
- Driver not seeing a cyclist
In all these cases you are the innocent victim and have a right to seek suitable compensation for your pain and suffering, for ongoing recovery and rehabilitation support and for possible loss of earnings.
Comprehensive bicycle accident support from Ison Harrison
A cyclist who is involved in an accident may suffer a range of injuries from bruises and scratches to fracture, head injury and concussion. In severe cases the injuries may be life-changing, life-threatening or fatal. The statistics speak for themselves with over 120 cycling fatalities, 3100 serious injuries and over 19,000 cycling accidents in the UK each year.
Bicycle accidents on the road are far too common, but first we need to establish if you have genuine claims to pursue a claim. In a free initial consultation we will listen to your story and advise on the circumstances, with a view to taking on your claim on a no-win-no-fee basis if we are confident that there is genuine liability on the part of the driver, you are the innocent victim and this can be proven by evidence or witness statement.

Our primary aim is your health and wellbeing following a bicycle accident, so we can help to get you back to good health, back to work and even back to cycling as soon as possible, which may mean rehabilitation and other treatments.
