Sadly, cyclists are often the most vulnerable road users, and many are injured on public roads in the course of a day. If you have been hurt whilst riding your bike and it wasn’t your fault, then you could make a bicycle injury compensation claim.
Bicycle injury compensation
Successful bicycle injury compensation claims arise from situations in which the injured party was not at fault. So in this case, that could mean being knocked off your bike by another vehicle, or falling off due to poor road surfaces, oil on the road, and so on.
Claim for a bicycle accident
You need to collect as many details as you can about the accident. Try and get names, contact information and insurance details for anyone else involved, and also those of any witnesses. If there are any pictures worth taking – of any damage, specific road conditions, or skid marks – then try and get those too.
Of course what’s most important of all is to make sure that you get proper medical attention. Even if you feel fine, and even if it doesn’t look as though there’s anything wrong, it’s essential that you see a doctor, particularly if you’ve suffered a bang to the head.
