Express Solicitors Launch Specialist Cycling Accident Department

Ryan cycle 1Express Solicitors are delighted to announce the launch of a specialist cycling accident department.

Cyclists are extremely vulnerable road users as they have no hard outer shell to protect them if they’re involved in a collision. In 2013, 109 cyclists were killed and 3,143 cyclists were seriously injured on UK roads.

The cycling accident department at Express Solicitors deals with a vast range of complex cycle injury cases.

Common injuries sustained by cyclists include:

  • Fractured/Broken bones
  • Torn ligaments
  • Soft tissue injuries
  • Head injuries

In the video below, Senior Litigation Executive, Chris Power, discusses the types of injuries sustained by cyclists that have been involved in an accident. Chris explains how Express Solicitors can help if you have been injured whilst cycling through no fault of your own.

Our road traffic accident lawyers are highly experienced in dealing with cycle accident claims and have successfully secured substantial amounts of compensation for clients injured in such accidents. The launch of a new dedicated department will ensure that all cycling accident claims are dealt with by a specialist team with expertise in the area.

LeeLee Hopwood was awarded £8,000 after he was knocked off his bike when a car suddenly pulled out of a junction and clipped his bike.  He went over his handlebars and landed on the bonnet of the car before falling into the middle of the road.

Lee sustained soft tissue injuries, swelling, and a broken rib. The cycle accident team at Express Solicitors secured a payment of £8,000 for Lee to compensate him for his injures. Read more about Lee’s cycle claim here.

As well as having a dedicated cycling accident department, Express Solicitors also actively encourages its employees to cycle to work. A number of staff members are passionate about cycling and the firm supports those wishing to commute to work on a bicycle by offering safe storage facilities and on site showers.
