Typical kinds of bike polo injury
There are always risks involved in riding a bike, and in bike polo the fact that several people are trying to ride around one another in a relatively small space means that accidents inevitably happen. The most common injuries are as follows:
- Road rash, cuts and bruising on arms and legs due to falls or crashes
- Broken bones caused by falls or crashes
- Head injuries caused by falls or crashing into other players
- Strains and sprains caused by struggling to recover balance
- Bruises or broken bones caused by being struck with a mallet
It is only possible to claim compensation for accidents that are caused by other people or result from their negligence. This can include situations in which other players are careless or ignore the rules, and situations where organisers of the game fail to step in when things start to go wrong.
It can also apply if there are obstructions on the court, or if there are problems with your bike, mallet or helmet that didn’t result either from your own actions or the usual effects of ordinary wear and tear.
Why make a claim?
Most people who are seeking bike polo injury advice have already made up their minds that they want to claim compensation, but if you are not sure whether to proceed, there are several factors worth thinking about.
One is that, even though it cannot fix all the damage that your bike polo injury has caused, money can make it a lot easier to cope with other problems such as having to take time off work or difficulty in getting around.
Secondly, if a game is being run correctly, the organisers should have liability insurance, and any compensation that they are ordered to pay will come out of that, rather than from them personally. A third consideration is that claiming compensation can help to ensure that changes will be made by those responsible in order to prevent such accidents occurring again.
The compensation claims process is much easier to deal with than you might think. At Accident Advice Helpline we always put our clients first and aim to make things as easy for them as possible.
Our highly skilled solicitors have a great record of success and can often resolve cases without the need to go to court. To find out more just give us a call on 0800 689 0500 for bike polo injury advice.
