Bicycle accident

Bicycle accident compensation claims

If you've been hurt while riding a bicycle in a public place, such as a park, or on a bicycle path or shared pathway, then you may have grounds for a public liability claim. At Maurice Blackburn, we have a team of expert public liability lawyers who can help you fight for your legal rights.

We can help you

Public liability law covers a range of circumstances in which you may have been injured, or someone close to you has died, due to the negligent acts of a third party. These include slippery or poorly maintained bike paths.

What can I claim for?

Compensation may cover:

  • medical costs (including future costs)
  • lost income
  • pain, suffering and loss of enjoyment of life
  • home help and attendant care.
