    Could you be liable if you hit someone when performing a trick on a BMX?

    If you injure someone while performing a trick on a BMX, you could be held liable for their injuries if you:

    • Caused the BMX accident by acting irresponsibly or recklessly

    • Did not maintain your BMX properly and the accident was subsequently caused by a fault on your bike

    You may not be liable if you hurt someone when performing a trick on a BMX because:

    Under these circumstances, liability could be held by the:

    • Manufacturer of the BMX

    • Retailer of the bike

    • Person or authority responsible for the track’s upkeep

    You would also not be liable if the person you hit caused the accident. This may, for example, be the case if this person carelessly stepped into your path while you were performing a trick on a BMX.

    Right to claim if you are injured when performing a trick on a BMX

    Sadly, BMX-related injuries are comparatively common. If you were injured by someone performing a trick on a BMX, you could qualify for personal injury compensation. This also applies if you were injured by a defective BMX bike or a poorly-maintained track.
