Legal advice for cyclists
Cycling is a simple pleasure – a bike can be acquired for next to nothing and you don’t require a licence or any specialist equipment – but whatever type of cyclist you are, it pays to know your rights and responsibilities in law.
We’ve teamed up with leading law firm Shoosmiths Access Legal to provide advice about cycling and the law and provide key tips. If you are a cyclist seeking compensation following a road traffic collision, it is vital that you choose a law firm that understand cyclists, the laws affecting them and the injuries and losses cyclists can suffer.
Should you be unfortunate enough to be involved in a collision or crash, make sure that the solicitors you use have long-standing partnerships with leading treatment and rehabilitation providers, cycle specialist accident investigators and barristers who specialise in this area of work. They can even help when the other parties involved in the road traffic collision are uninsured or untraceable.
When you invest in cycle insurance from the ETA, you enjoy a host of benefits including new-for-old replacement (whatever the age of your bike), protection against accidental damage, third party cover up to £1m and free legal advice. The Good Shopping Guide this year nominated us Britain’s most ethical insurance company. If you have any questions about cycling and the law, you can contact our dedicated helpline on 0845 389 1050.
