    What people say?

    Thanks to Cycle Legal’s shrewd moves, I was able to spring back from my injuries, recover my lost earnings and return to cycling again.

    What people say?

    Following a collision with a van whilst delivering, I was unable to work for five weeks. Cycle Legal helped me recover this loss of earnings. It took a while, but worth the wait.

    What people say?

    Whilst out for a ride through London, I was hit by a car skipping a red light. Kevin at Cycle Legal helped me make a full claim from the driver, even though he didn’t stop.

    Cycle Legal makes history as First Ever UK Cycling Law Firm

    The UK’s first ever stand-alone cycle law firm launches this Friday evening, 15 April, at premier London Cycle Café, Look Mum No Hands, 49 Old Street, London, EC1V 9HX

    Cycle Legal based in London at the heart of the UK’s cycling revolution was founded by committed cyclist and specialist in cycling law, Kevin O’Sullivan.

    Kevin developed a cycling law department at his previous firm and has acted almost exclusively for cyclists seriously injured on London’s roads for over 15 years. He appears regularly on LBC on cycling matters with Nick Ferrari on the breakfast show.

    “Cyclists like me enjoy being represented by a firm which only looks out for them, fighting for their rights, and campaigning for safer roads and increased cycle usage across the country. I set up Cycle Legal, since so many of the cyclists I have met and represented have said to me that they do not wish to be represented by a huge corporation, but rather a niche firm that specialises only in the needs of the two-wheeled traveller.

    As a cycling city, London has been transformed after 16 years of two very different Mayors. Boris has built on Ken’s great work, in my view, and the superhighways currently nearing completion will only add to this.

    This political leadership has made cycling safer too. When I started cycling in London over 20 years ago, there were not anything like the facilities there after day, and it was much more dangerous.

    The sterling work by cycling campaigners to make lorries safer has been equally important and that battle is far from over."

    Cycle Legal specialises in representing seriously injured cyclists on UK roads, specialising in brain injuries, multiple orthopaedic injuries and significant scarring cases.
