With 19,000 cyclists killed or seriously injured on the UK’s roads every year, cycling head injuries are a very real risk for anyone choosing to cycle to work on in their free time. Cycling is not only a great way to keep fit, it’s also good for the environment, and cycling to work every day can help to keep you fit, healthy and happy. But if you’re involved in a collision with another vehicle, cycling head injuries could occur, and these could be life-threatening, even life-changing.
Cycling head injuries can range from bruising to the brain (which could affect your personality or cause memory loss) to severe bleeding, fractured skull and brain injury. Many people who sustain head injuries make a full recovery, but there are always those who are so severely injured that the impact on their life is significant. If you have sustained a brain injury, you may be unable to look after yourself, or behavioural and personality changes could make it impossible for you to return to work, leading to financial losses.
Contact a personal injury lawyer if you have sustained cycling head injuries, to find out whether you could claim compensation for your pain and suffering.

Cycling head injuries can dramatically affect your quality of life, so if you have been the victim of a cycling accident, make a claim for compensation now. Provided you’re within the three-year time limit, a personal injury lawyer will gather evidence to support your claim, and the amount of compensation you receive will take into account your pain and suffering, any medical expenses incurred and financial losses, such as reduced salary from time off work to recover from your injuries.
