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:
Your new bike was defective
A designated BMX track was not maintained properly
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.
The first step in making personal injury claims is to get helpful advice and assistance in establishing who is liable for your accidental injuries. We, Accident Advice Helpline, can:
Provide you with expert BMX injury advice
Assist you in establishing who is liable for your injury
Help you gather evidence to support your claim
What’s more, our in-house solicitors can bring your BMX accident claim to a satisfactory conclusion quickly, efficiently and without unnecessary hassle. You also do not have to worry about funding the claim process, as we invariably conduct claims under conditional fee agreements (no-win, no-fee*).
