Our cycling and sports accidents claims team represent cyclists and sports people who have been injured in sporting activities, whilst training, enjoying leisure pursuits or whilst commuting to work.
Even relatively minor injuries can have a significant effect, particularly on high achieving sports people, and can ruin months or even years of training. Our specialist cycling claims lawyers focus on rehabilitation so that our active clients can work towards getting back to their pre-accident quality of life as quickly as possible. Our cycling team lawyers have extensive experience in successfully securing compensation for injured cyclists so that they can return to training and competing as quickly as possible.
