Woman with a bicycle

There are some common pitfalls that have arisen in cycling accident litigation, but cyclists can protect themselves against them.

Although these pitfalls can all have potential to result in a less than full compensation recovery, it is rarely the case that all is lost in terms of a claim for compensation.

It is therefore important to seek legal advice from a specialist firm of solicitors to advise and negotiate on your behalf.
