Getting you back on the road

In the car-dominated road space of Western Australia, bikes are often not given the respect that they deserve, sometimes resulting in accidents that leave them with serious and life-threatening injuries.

If you’ve been sidelined by a cycling or e-scooter accident that wasn’t your fault, you deserve to be compensated. Accident Claims Lawyers can put you and your bike on the road to recovery.

Whether recovering the costs of medical bills or loss of earnings, our specialist staff will secure the necessary support you require.

Why do I need a lawyer?

To make a claim you need to show that you were not at fault, which is not always immediately clear or easy to demonstrate to insurance companies. Our legal team specialises in cycle accidents and knows how to source and utilise the available evidence to provide a fair assessment of events.

Even when you can easily prove there was no fault, having a team of experienced legal professionals on your side will ensure you receive a fair settlement.

Our team can help you...

Initial advice is free

Whatever the circumstances, Accident Claims Lawyers will consider your account of events and advise on the validity of your case. Our initial consultations are free and will help you understand how much you may be entitled to and to decide on whether you want to proceed.

Should you do so, we will assist you through every stage of the claim, exploiting our understanding of the nature and causes of cycle accidents and the best support available to speed your recovery.
