When we participate in sporting events, you almost expect to experience some sport-related accidents, such as slips, trips and falls. That being said, when you are hoping to raise funds cycling for charity, if you suffer a sporting injury, where exactly does liability lie? Can you claim compensation?
Who is to blame for accidents when cycling for charity?
Regardless of whether you are cycling for charity or cycling for pleasure, if you suffer a sport-related injury due to an incident that was not your fault, a third party may be liable for the harm you have suffered.
It is, of course, difficult to determine liability for the injury you sustained while cycling for charity, without knowing the ins and outs of the accident in question.
It could be that an unmaintained area of road was to blame for your fall from your bike, a manufacturing fault, or poor organisation, in which case a number of people or organisations could be held liable for your accident when cycling for charity.
How do you determine liability for an accident when cycling for charity?
The best way to determine liability for your cycling accident would be to speak with a specialist personal injury law firm, such as Accident Advice Helpline.
We offer a free initial consultation for victims of personal injury to both assess the nature of your claim to see if your case is eligible to claim compensation, and to determine where liability may lie for your cycling-related injuries.
So long as your accident occurred within the last three years and you are able to provide evidence to suggest liability and in support of the medical ailment you suffered, it is likely that we will be able to help you claim the personal injury compensation you are entitled to.
