We are experts in fatal motorbike and cycle accident claims, as well as cases where a motorcyclist or cyclist has suffered from serious life-changing injuries.
Both bikers and cyclists are frequently involved in fatal road accidents due to their vulnerability and reduced protection compared with motor vehicles, vans and lorries. The likelihood of serious life-changing injuries or death is far greater if you are a motorcyclist or cyclist. Our expertise in dealing with fatal bike accidents spans over 27 years.
Fatal Cycle Accidents in Large UK Cities:
During recent years, there has been an increase in cycle fatalities in the UK, especially in large urban cities such:
Road deaths such as this are on the increase, especially in London.
Motorbike & Cycling Deaths – Compensation
Motorcyclists are likely to be killed on a bike than any other means of transport. 80% of motorcycle accidents claims are as a result of the fault of the motorist or lorry driver. The consequences of a fatal road accident are devastating. Fatal motorbike accident claims occur frequently, resulting in death on UK roads. As a motorbike rider, you are 40+ times more likely to be killed than car drivers or passengers.
We do understand that compensation following a fatal cycle road accident is often a secondary thought, but making a claim helps maintain financial stability and relieves the financial worry and stress that comes with losing a bread-winning spouse or partner.
No Win, No Fee, No Worry
Once you have thought about taking legal advice, the next thing to consider is the costs of instructing a solicitor that specialises in fatal motorbike and cycling road accidents.
You can be assured that the family, and or the dependents of the deceased who instruct us following a tragic loss of life, will not have to worry about their legal costs as we operate under a No Win No Fee basis. At least there is one thing less to worry about.
What About When You Win?
Dealing with fatal motorbike and cycle accident compensation claims has become a challenge to bereaved families since the law change in April 2013. If you WIN your claim, you may have to pay up to 25% of your compensation to your cycle accident claim solicitors. So if you were awarded, for example, £50,000, you may have to pay your solicitors £12,500, leaving you with only £37,500. Our clients benefit from lower fees than most other compensation claims if the case is won.
It can be expensive if you instruct a solicitor who charges a large success fee if you win. For our part, if you instruct us, you have the ability to keep 100% of the fatal accident compensation award.

Help When You Really Need Us Most
In such a tragic time as a fatal accident claims, our cycle accident solicitors appreciate that compensation for a motorbike or cycling fatal accident is secondary to the grieving process and to find out what happened.
Following the heartbreak, legal issues tend to become prominent to help get to the truth and a form of justice. The financial stress also plays a part especially if the “bread-winner” is killed following a fatal motorbike accident or fatal cycle accident. This is where specialist injury claim solicitors can help the family in their most difficult time.
We shall help every step of the way, from dealing with the police to the coroner and inquest hearings. In the meantime, if the opponent admits fault to the fatal accident claim, we can then arrange for interim compensation payments to help with the bills that do not stop following a fatal accident.
