I’ve been injured in a bike accident – can no win, no fee lawyers help?
Even when cycling lanes are well maintained and clearly defined there is still a risk of accidental injury due to another person’s irresponsible actions. Pedestrians, vehicle drivers and faulty equipment can all cause problems to occur and sometimes result in serious injury. Accidents commonly occur at junctions, in high-traffic areas, at roundabouts or in poor weather. The types of injuries that no win, no fee lawyers may be able to help you claim compensation for include the following:
- Abrasions and lacerations – often these are seen as being minor injuries but can still cause major discomfort and require medical intervention. Cyclists who have been dragged along the road may receive friction related injuries such as ‘road rash’ which can lead to foreign objects becoming embedded in the skin or large areas of surface damage. Surgical treatment may include ‘debridement’ which is the removal of debris in dead or damaged tissue and antibiotics to prevent infection. Lacerations caused by sharp objects such as glass or metal may require stitches and wound dressing.
- Fractures – a rider attempting to break their fall may sustain a fracture to their wrist, arm or shoulder. Open fractures are where the bones protrude through the skin’s surface and can be caused by twisting or shattering of the bone. Infection may occur and nerves and blood vessels may be damaged. Because nearby muscles, ligaments and tendons may be torn, treatment often takes longer than for closed fractures and surgery is often necessary.
