Cyclist Accident Compensation Calculator

Have you been involved in a cycle accident? If a motorist has knocked you off your bike or you're the victim of another type of accident, you may be able to claim for compensation. Use our online guide to find out how much you could claim depending on the injuries you've sustained.

Compensation for Cyclist Accidents

When compensation for a cycle accident claim is being assessed, various factors are taken into account to calculate the amount that a claimant will receive. One of these important factors to be assessed is the extent of the injuries sustained and the impact it has had on the victim. Compensation will also be calculated based on the age of the claimant with higher payouts typically awarded the younger the person is. Gender is also considered and females who received injuries such as scarring will typically receive more than males.

When it comes to the severity of the cycle injuries sustained, each case will be decided on its own individual facts. How much you can be entitled to depends on how you have been affected by the cycle accident. A minor injury to one person may be quite severe to another person and thus the latter may be able to obtain more compensation, especially if there is a psychological development on top of the physical injuries.
