What kind of injuries could I sustain in a cycling accident?
The person riding the bike really has little to no protection compared to the other people on the road, which is why cyclists’ injuries tend to be quite serious. Here are some of the more common cycling injuries with which we deal in compensation claims:
- Broken or fractured bones;
- Head, brain or neck injuries;
- Road rash, which can be caused by skidding across the road;
- Back and spinal injuries, which can be life-changing injuries; and
- Soft tissue injuries such as whiplash, which can be very painful.
A lot of these injuries can end up changing the lives of the victim and those close to them, all of which need to be accounted for when the victim is making their personal injury claim.
