Suffering injuries from a cycling accident can be very serious indeed, because a bicycle offers no protection at all to the rider in a case of being involved in an accident. If you have injuries because of someone else’s negligence or recklessness, you may want to make Bury claims for compensation.
All accidents, injuries and victims are unique, and each personal injury claim needs to be treated as the unique entity that it is. If you have suffered injuries in a cycling accident, the way you cope with them will be different to the way another victim may cope with similar injuries, and the effects on your lives could be nothing alike either. The only thing the you and the other cyclist may have in common is that your accidents were caused by someone else, so you should both be able to make Bury claims for compensation.
Injuries and making Bury claims
The severity of your injuries will depend on the type of cycling accident in which you were involved, but can range from something minor like a few abrasions to something as major as a brain injury, or even death.
One of the first things you need to do after any type of accident is to seek out medical attention. If you are not taken away from the accident scene in an ambulance, that does not mean that there is nothing wrong with you.
You should get yourself checked out at the doctors – after all, they are the professionals, and may well spot something that is not quite right that you have missed. Then there are injuries like whiplash that may not show themselves for several hours after the accident, and sometimes it is even the next day that the victim realises they have a problem. A pre-existing condition can be made worse by an accident, and your doctor’s opinions on this can be crucial.
Whatever you injuries are, Accident Advice Helpline will need the medical reports relating to them when helping to make your personal injury claim, and it is not unusual for the legal representation of the guilty person to request that a victim attends an independent medical assessment. This can only help speed up your claim, and we recommend that claimants attend this extra medical assessment if possible.
