Unicycling can be fun, but if you have suffered an injury whilst unicycling that was the fault of a third party you may wish to make a unicycle accident claim. Unicycling is not a common activity, but this does not mean that pursuing a unicycle accident claim is much different from a claim for an injury suffered playing a more common sport, such as football or rugby.
Unlike mountain biking unicycling would generally be described as low risk because speed is much less a part of the sport. Injuries that occur during unicycling are generally not serious. A fall from a unicycle normally only results in the unicycle hitting the ground and the rider is able to step away thus avoiding serious injury. However, more experienced riders may attempt more complicated moves that can result in more serious injuries. The most common types of injuries seen during unicycling are strains, sprains and fractures. Only rarely do these require hospitalisation, however, this does not mean that more serious injuries cannot occur.
