Bicycle / Cycling Accidents

27th Oct 2018

Frank Doherty Solicitor is a keen cyclist and triathlete taking part in many sportives around Ireland and rides out weekly with local cycling groups.   As a result Frank is very aware of the dangers facing cyclists on Irish Roads and the increase in Road Traffic Accidents involving cyclists.   Theses cycling accidents can include;

  • collisions with cars
  • falls from bikes due to poor road surfaces to include pot holes
  • falls as a result of trying to avoid obstacles or animals

 

We have dealt with many such claims successfully resulting in compensation for the personal injuries sustained as a result of the accident. Also compensation for;

  • costs of repairs or replacement of bicycles
  • helmets
  • Garmins
  • medical bills
  • physiotherapy bills
  • loss of earning while off work.

 

Due to the Statute of Limitations accident victims have two years to file a compensation claim, so it is important to file as quickly as possible and to consult a solicitor. When it comes to litigation, we provide robust, fearless representation based on comprehensive experience of court, negotiation and mediation processes.

If involved in a cycle accident call Frank 065 684 6884 or by email at info@dohertysolicitors.ie  to discuss whether or not you have a valid claim.

“In contentious business a solicitor may not calculate fees or other charges as a percentage or proportion of any award or settlement “.
