About the scheme...

As a member of the scheme, through your association with one of Serious Cycle Scheme’s corporate partners, you, and your family and friends will be provided with up to £150,000 of cover for legal costs should you be involved in a road traffic accident.

The Scheme is...

  • Provided by one of the country’s leading law firms, who have been representing the victims of serious cycling accidents for almost 30 years;
  • Free to you, providing you have reached us through a link provided by us to one of our corporate partners, because we have taken out and paid for the policy of insurance that will cover our members. Should you have an accident and your case be accepted, legal fees will be paid by either the ‘other party’, if the case is successful, or the £150,000 of insurance cover the scheme provides assuming you have complied with our Terms & Conditions.

Why we set up the Scheme...

  • In our experience, the victims of accidents often end up in the hands of solicitors who do not specialise or care passionately about protecting the rights of vulnerable road users such as cyclists and who don’t have a proven track record in cycling accident cases;
  • We are committed to promoting the welfare of cyclists, and that in the event of an accident, their interests are protected. In providing the scheme we want to ensure that the injured party receives the professional help they need and that they do not have to worry about the costs of pursuing a claim;
  • If we win your case, then we will usually be paid our fees by the responsible party/their insurance company. This payment will be in addition to your compensation. There will be no deduction from your compensation for our costs. We also get to continue doing the things that we are passionate about – helping vulnerable cyclists, winning sometimes difficult cases and achieving high levels of compensation for our clients.

As a member of the Serious Cycle Scheme, you and your family will have the benefit of free legal protection up to £150,000 should you have a road traffic accident whilst cycling.

If you, or someone you know, has been involved in a cycle accident – we can help.
