Suffered a cycling injury? Make your no win no fee in Brampton personal injury claim using the expert injury solicitors!
Cycling on the roads can mean that you are vulnerable to being involved in a road traffic accident or becoming injured through no fault of your own. The design of cycles means that the cyclist is given little protection from the impact of being involved in a collision and being seriously injured.
If you have been involved in a cycling accident and sustained an injury as a result within the last 3 years, then you are legally entitled to make a personal injury compensation claim for your injuries.
Causes of cycling accidents
- The poor design of bikes means that they lack built-in protection afforded to other means of transport, such as seat restraints, air bags and side impact protection systems.
- Only secondary protection is available to cyclists and this depends on them purchasing, wearing and using this equipment such as fitted lights, safety helmets, protective clothing and footwear.
- Other road users failing to stop in time, causing collisions.
- Other road users failing to look adequately and identifying the presence of cyclists.
- Other road users failing to indicate their intentions to cyclists at junctions and traffic lights.
- Other road users failing to give way to cyclists at junctions and allowing enough room when turning left.
Typical cycling related injuries
Many injuries are caused through the actions of other road users and include:
- Soft tissue injuries
- Lacerations and bruising
- Internal injuries
- Broken, fractured and dislocated bones
- Spinal injuries
- Limb injuries
- Neck injuries
- Head injuries
- Fatal injuries
Keeping yourself seen!
It is important that cyclists take reasonable precautions to ensure their own safety on the roads. There are a wide range of products that can be purchased to protect and identify the cyclist on the open road.
- Safety helmets save lives. However, they do need to fit correctly and be adjusted and secured, to maximise the level of protection that they may offer on impact.
- High visibility stickers, tabards and clothing all increase the presence of the cyclist on the roads, especially in poor weather and at dawn and dusk when light is low.
- Protective clothing can mean that in the event of a fall or collision, the cyclist has a secondary protective level which can avoid lacerations on impact.
- Cycling glasses can prevent glare from the sun and keep eyes clear of grit and flying debris on the roads.
