We are experts in fatal motorbike accidents and cycle accident claims, as well as cases where a motorcyclist or cyclist has suffered from severe life-changing injuries.
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 life-changing injuries or death is far more significant if you are a motorcyclist or cyclist. Our expertise in dealing with fatal bike accidents spans over 27 years.
Fatal Bike 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 as:
Fatal bike accidents 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 due to the fault of the motorist or lorry driver. The consequences of a fatal motorbike accident are devastating. Catastrophic motorbike accident claims frequently occur, 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 bike accident is often a secondary thought, but making a claim helps maintain financial stability. It 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 deceased’s family and/or dependents 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 might 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 wins.
It can be expensive if you instruct a solicitor who charges a hefty success fee if you win. If you instruct us, you can keep 100% of the fatal accident compensation award.

Help When You Need Us Most
In such a tragic time as a fatal accident claims, our cycle accident solicitors appreciate that compensation for a motorbike or fatal cycling 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. 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 challenging 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 bike accident claim, we can then arrange for interim compensation payments to help with the bills that do not stop following a fatal accident.
