Would you believe that cycling is the 3rd most popular hobby in the United Kingdom. People who cycle can be of all ages from little kids to pensioners and all of them love bikes, a lot of them just use them simply for pleasure, others use them to get to work and back. Then there are the professional who race them.
But in the end it doesn’t really matter what reason your were out for a cycle, if you were injured in an accident that was in no way your fault, if those injuries needed medical attention and if the accident happened in the last 3 years, you could be entitled to make a personal injury claim for compensation. A lawyer from Accident Advice Helpline can help you through the process of claiming that compensation.
Whose fault was the accident?
If your bike was faulty, if you hit a pothole or if another person on the road crashed into you… these are only a very small sample of how thing could go wrong when you are cycling. There are so many different ways that you could get injured on a bike at no fault of your own, where it would be someone else’s fault. No matter what kind of accident you had, no matter what type of injury you sustain, a lawyer from Accident Advice Helpline will assist you with your personal injury claim.
What type of injuries could I get from a bike accident?
The person riding the bike has very little protection on the road compared to all the other cars, trucks and jeeps out there so usually the cyclist’s injuries tend to be a bit more serious. But here are the most common cycling injuries that we come across in claiming for compensation –
- Broken or cracked bones
- Head or brain injuries
- Joint damage
- Road rash
- Back and spinal injuries
- Soft tissue injuries such as whiplash
Some of these injuries, like the back and spinal injuries, could be life changing for the person injured and for the people close to them, all of this needs to be taken into account when it comes to making your compensation claim.
