The South Coast’s Cycling Accident Specialists
The popularity of road cycling in England has risen considerably in recent years with the competitive success of British riders such as Bradley Wiggins and Mark Cavendish. Also, local Councils have made greater provision for cyclists with the introduction of cycle lanes and routes.
Unfortunately, as a consequence, there are a greater number of cyclists on the roads and at risk of serious injury from accidents involving vehicles regardless of whether they are leisure, commuter or competitive riders.
Our personal injury lawyers take cycling accident cases on a no win, no fee basis.
Accidents and injuries can be caused by other road users, by poor cycling lanes and road/trail design, by defective road surfaces such as potholes, debris and spillages, faulty repairs carried out by a cycle shop or from defective frames and components.
At Hayward Baker Solicitors, we have lawyers specialising in helping cycling accident victims. They are keen cyclists themselves and members of the British Cycling organisation so understand the risks and nature of cycling accidents. For example, our lawyers understand the laws about wearing cycling helmets and reflective clothing as well as the requirement to fit lights, reflectors and a bell to a bicycle.
Injuries sustained in cycling accidents can be serious and we have the knowledge and expertise to help all cyclists from the serious head and spinal injuries through to the broken bones and bumps and bruises. We can also advise you upon and help recover your financial losses, including any loss of earnings or costs to repair the damage to your bicycle.
