    "If you've been injured through no fault of your own you could be entitled to compensation. If you're unsure if you could claim, I recommend you call Accident Advice Helpline."

    One of the fastest growing hobbies in the UK is cycling, because we have lots of wonderful cycle routes but also because cycling is a good form of exercise, and is a relatively cheap hobby to have. It also might be your only form of transport.

    There is only one problem with cycling. This is the lack of protection a rider has if they happen to be involved in an accident. Often, their injuries are severe. If the accident that causes them was not their own fault, then they should consider making a personal injury compensation claim using personal injury solicitors.

    The accidents that can happen while cycling

    Cycling can be great for all age groups. This does mean, however, that all age groups suffer injuries in accidents that were not their fault, some of the scenarios being:

    • A car door opening onto to you as you pass parked cars;
    • Crashing with a motor vehicle, whether it be a car, bus or lorry;
    • Animals running out in front of you and causing you to lose control;
    • Oil or mud on the road causing the rider to slip and fall from their bike; and
    • Hitting a pothole that throws you off your cycle.

    If any one of these cause you to injure yourself, then you would be able to make a personal injury claim using our solicitors.

    The injuries you could sustain in a cycling accident that was not your fault

    The injuries you may suffer can vary greatly and affect victims in different ways, but some of them are:

    • Neck injuries;
    • Spinal injuries;
    • Cuts and bruises;
    • Soft tissue injuries;
    • Knee injuries;
    • Elbow injuries;
    • Wrist injuries;
    • Head and brain injuries;
    • Anxiety and stress;
    • Broken bones;
    • Road rash; and
    • Back injuries.

    Any of these injuries caused in a bicycle accident that was not your fault would enable you to make a personal injury claim.

    The variety of things you can claim for

    Injuries from any type of accident can be severe and life-changing. The effects of your accident on your future life need to be accounted for when making your injury claim, not just your pain and suffering. There is the trauma you have endured, the loss of your income and extra costs involved. Anything else that is a direct result of the accident and your injuries can be claimed for.
