Types of Bicycle Accident Claims
We offer professional and expert legal advice to cyclists that have involved in an accident. We help to make successful cycling accident claims every year for injuries, equipment damage and more. Typically the type of accidents that we deal with are related to some very common issues, in the main due to negligence by other road users. Classic cases include where a car will turn across the path of a cyclist, or where a car comes through a junction without seeing the person on the bike, injuries occurring on roundabouts, plus where poorly maintained roads and highways have resulted in injuries.
Whilst those are the most common reasons for cyclists looking to make a cycle accident claim, there are also other circumstances where injury and accident can occur such as pedestrians stepping off pavements into the paths of bicycles, dog walkers, and many other scenarios.
Typical Personal Injuries From Cycling Accidents
Without the protection a car offers drivers to sheild them from harm, cyclists are generally reliant on a helmet and potentially some knee or elbow pads, but even that is fairly uncommon. This means that when cyclists are injured in accidents, they are usually at significant risk of serious, body-wide damage. This is exponentially so for motorcyclists, who have the same problem, yet at higher speeds.
Whilst minor injuries of cyclists might include whiplash from collisions or brusing of the legs from falls, moderate accidents may include arm bone breaks and hip displacement. More serious accidents can cause head injuries or even brain damage. Such injuries are especially more commonplace if the rider wasn’t wearing a helmet – typical in bicycle hire schemes. No matter how you were injured whilst on your bike, it might be possible for you to make a claim so please do get in touch with us.
Statistics on UK Cycling Accidents
Casualties from cycling accidents are more common that you might think. With an increase in people cycling over the last couple of years according to governmental figures, accidents could unfortunately be on the increase. We hope that you aren’t involved in the statistics below and implore you to be safe. If you do have an accident though please do call us regarding a bicycle accident claim.
