Bicycle / Cycling Accidents27th 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 for the personal injuries sustained as a result of the accident. Also recovery of costs for;
- costs of repairs or replacement of bicycles
- medical bills
- physiotherapy bills
- loss of earning while off work.
Due to the Statute of Limitations accident victims have two years to file a 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.
