What do you need to know about Bicycle Accident Claims?

Firstly, if you’re looking for information about motorbike accident claims, you can find that here

Like any accident on our roads, Bike Accident Claims require someone to be at fault – such as the driver of a car, bus, truck etc. 

If the person responsible was unable to be identified because they left the scene (if so, we’re sorry that happened to you) then you could still be able to access a claim via the Nominal Defendant Scheme.

These claims are impacted by different time limits, so it’s important that you contact our team as soon as you are able so they can review your case (for free) and give you some clear, honest advice about the next steps.

Our expert cycling accident lawyers are standing by to help you understand your options to access compensation for your injuries – reach out to our team today.

What other questions do you have about making a bicycle accident claim?

Potentially, yes. If poor infrastructure or maintenance caused the accident, the responsible body (like a council) might be liable. It’s vital to document the hazardous conditions and consult a lawyer.

Yes, you can still make a claim in hit-and-run situations. It might be through your own insurance or a special fund for such incidents. Legal counsel can guide you on the best path forward.

Not wearing a helmet can affect your claim, especially if head injuries are involved. However, it doesn’t bar you from making a claim. It’s essential to discuss the details with a lawyer to understand potential impacts.

Yes. In Queensland, you generally have three years from the accident date to start a claim. But there might be exceptions. It’s crucial to seek legal advice quickly to ensure you’re within the time frame.

To secure your rights:

  • Document the accident scene with photos.
  • Gather witness and involved party details.
  • Seek medical help immediately, keeping all records.
  • Engage a lawyer experienced in bicycle accident claims for advice.

Claim durations can differ. Case complexity, injury severity, and liability clarity play roles. While some might resolve in months, others may take longer. Consulting a lawyer will give a more accurate timeline.

Compensation varies based on injuries, costs, lost earnings, and more. An experienced lawyer from our team can evaluate your specific situation and provide a detailed estimate.

The types of damages you can recover, include:

  • General damages – for pain and suffering;
  • Past and future loss of wages;
  • Loss of superannuation;
  • Past and future medical expenses;
  • Other past and future out of pocket expenses;
  • The cost of past and future care; and
  • Legal costs.

We know it can be overwhelming to know which firm to trust with your road accident claim, there’s a lot of us out there! We also know it can sound a little biased when we tell you to choose Best.

There are a few reasons we think you should choose Best as your Bicycle Accident Claim lawyers:

  1. We hire the Best people: our team aren’t only some of the sharpest legal minds in Queensland (no really, we win awards for it) but they’re also genuinely good people, who care about their clients. When we say we hire the Best, we mean we hire people who care about every case and every client, people you’d want fighting for you that you’d also happily catch up over a cuppa with.
  2. We will never leave you out of pocket: how so?
    • No Win, No Fee. Forever. You will only be charged if we win your case, so you can rest easy that we will be doing everything we can to put you in a better place than when you started your claim with us.
    • 30% Fee Cap. Some firms take around 50% of your compensation claim, we cap at 30% +GST to cover our fees (so even if our fees are more than that, we won’t charge you for it).
    • We cover out-of-pocket expenses. There are necessary expenses that must be incurred to successfully run your claim, because we want you to focus on your recovery and not the cost of your case. We will cover the cost for outlays needed to run your case, and you will only be expected to pay for these if your case is successful (these will be added as a part of your compensation claim, for the insurer to pay for).
  3. We take on cases other firms won’t, and we win them: we have a history of taking on claims other firms won’t, because we’re not afraid of hard work and because we know the difference a successful claim will make to you and your life.
