Speedway accidents can cause a wide range of injuries of varying severity. Some speedway injuries are more common than others. Here are some of them.
Common speedway injuries
The most common speedway injuries sustained by drivers and spectators include:
Dislocations (especially of the shoulder)
Fractures to arms, legs and collarbones
Head injuries including concussions
Whiplash and other neck injuries
Back and spinal injuries of varying severity may also occur.
Treatment of speedway injuries
Depending on the type and severity of an injury, recovery may take weeks, if not months. Necessary treatments may include operations, physiotherapy and, in particularly severe cases, counselling for the psychological and emotional trauma caused by a speedway accident. Being unable to work for weeks or months and having to pay for expensive medical treatments can add financial worries to an already stressful, traumatic time.
Claiming for compensation
If you were injured in a speedway accident caused by someone else, you could be entitled to make a personal injury claim. Making such a claim could help to ease the financial burden your injury has placed upon you by compensating you for:
Your pain and suffering
Loss of earnings
Medical and other expenses incurred because of your speedway injury
