Cycling accidents can have serious consequences, as was seen in the following case, when a cyclist was airlifted to hospital after sustaining serious injuries in an A1077 crash with a car.
While exact circumstances of this road traffic accident are not yet known, it appears that on 25 January 2015, the cyclist was knocked off his bike by a car, sustaining serious personal injuries. The severity of the injuries lead to an air ambulance to be called in the process.
The 33-year-old driver of the car was arrested and bailed later under suspicion of having committed driving offences.
Until the exact circumstances of this road accident become clear, it is difficult to determine who was at fault. The fact that the car driver was arrested does, however, suggest that the car crash was indeed caused by his actions. Should this turn out to be correct, the cyclists may be entitled to claim for cycling injury compensation.
When you are hurt
In a similar manner, if you sustain an injury in a car accident, cycling or motorcycling accident, caused by another road user, you may be eligible for personal injury compensation. This not only applies to drivers, motorcyclists or cyclists, but also passengers of any type of vehicle involved in traffic related accidents.
Who can claim
Any person injured in an accident on the road within the last three years, through no fault of their own, may be entitled to claim for compensation.
