What can I claim cycling accident compensation for?

Cycling accidents can happen anywhere at any time and sadly cycling injuries are on the rise by about 8% every year, with many cyclists being injured and killed daily.

Incidents that are eligible for bicycle accident compensation claims in Queensland include:

  • Being “car-doored” (when a car door is opened without enough notice for a rider to avoid)
  • Other road users and car drivers failing to give way to the rider
  • Collisions with another vehicle, a pedestrian, or property

As soon as you have been in an accident, you need to report it to the police. If it involves another vehicle on the road that is licensed, such as trucks, buses, and other motor vehicles, try to get the registration number and driver details. This information is crucial to making a cycling accident compensation claim.

If successful, your total cycling injury compensation payout will take into account what medical treatments you’ll need to recover and how much they’re likely to cost. These ongoing medical expenses might include physiotherapy, occupational therapy, and modifications to your home and vehicle. Bicycle accident compensation amounts also factor in any loss of income, including projected earnings if you can no longer work, as well as the physical pain and mental anguish you’ve had to endure.

Even if you don’t feel pain immediately after a bicycle accident, it’s important to report the crash and see a doctor. You should also contact an experienced bicycle accident lawyer to assess your potential compensation claim. The Personal Injury Lawyers have helped people injured in many types of accidents to get the financial compensation they need to recover.

How do I begin to make a bicycle accident compensation claim?

To begin to make a claim for injuries sustained in a cycling accident, you will need to prove the incident was caused by or contributed to by another party.

This could be with an eye witness or CCTV footage. Once you have done this, you will be able to make a claim against the Compulsory Third Party (CTP) insurer of the other person that was involved in the accident.

Queensland law also requires any accidents that result in injury to be reported to the police, so be sure to do this before making a claim. 

To get an idea of how much you get for your claim, once again our Bicycle accident compensation calculator can give you an approximate estimate.

Don’t leave it too late after your cycling incident before you seek legal advice. Due to the strict time limits that apply to making a claim, we recommend getting in touch with a specialist bike accident lawyer as soon as possible.

This depends on the circumstances of your cycling accident.

Usually in Queensland, you are entitled to make a claim unless you are entirely at fault for an incident.

If another party is at fault or partly responsible for the accident, you will be eligible to make a claim for at least part of the costs related to your cycling injuries.

The costs of your claim will depend on the circumstances of your case.

Costs might include lodging forms or getting medical records. If you win your case and receive compensation, you are required to pay your legal professional for their services.

In Queensland, legislation is in place to make sure all of your damages don’t end up in your lawyer’s pocket.

While most personal injury claims are settled outside of court, you may need to attend court as part of your claim process if:

  • The CTP insurance provider is fighting liability of the driver of the vehicle they insure.
  • You weren’t able to identify the other vehicle involved in the accident, so the claim must be made against the Nominal Defendant.

These types of claims can take several months due to the number of different parties involved.

In a case where a serious injury has been caused by a cycling accident where liability is difficult to establish, it can take longer than cases involving less serious injuries.

To get an estimate on the length of your case, get in touch with us. The Personal Injury Lawyers are an experienced bicycle accident law firm and we can talk you through the entire compensation process.

Generally the CTP insurer of the party or parties at fault will pay out the compensation.
