    Common track cycling injuries

    When cycling on the roads, the last thing you’re thinking of is getting injured because of someone else’s recklessness or irresponsibility. Unfortunately, the world is filled with people who aren’t as conscious of other people and their needs as you might be. As a result, this can cause severe or even fatal injuries.

    Cycling is becoming more popular as a sport, hobby and a viable travel option. Track cycling is a growing sport which is increasing in popularity with all ages. Competitively, track cycling can be dangerous, travelling at such a fast speed can cause serious injuries which might not always be your fault.

    Road cycling recklessness can result in injury, especially for cyclists when the rules of the road aren’t followed. This is no different to life as a cyclist commuting on cycle tracks. We at Accident Advice Helpline have compiled a list of track cycling injuries which you may have suffered in the past.

    Track cycling injuries

    • When a cyclist is knocked off their bike, the most dangerous injury to suffer is a blow to the head because of the consequences. Being dealt a heavy blow to the head can result in anything from a concussion to serious brain damage. If you have been knocked from your bike by a third party, you may be due compensation, so take our 30-second test to find out.
    • If you fall from a bike at any speed, you run the considerable risk of breaking a bone. Be it in your arm or in your back, your ability to work or study might be compromised and this is where compensation is fully deserved. Serious injuries often result in compensation due to the impact they have on your ability to live in a normal capacity and you should claim for your loss.
    • Falling from a bike onto tar or gravel can result in serious lacerations or grazes which can result in stitches or skin grafts and permanent scarring.
    • Even if you suffer minor injuries, you’re still able to claim if it wasn’t your fault and happened in the last three years.
