Riding your bike is an enjoyable hobby but it can pose serious risks for your safety if you don’t take care on the roads.
Sometimes taking care is not enough and cyclists suffer accidents because of other road users’ negligence.
If you are a cyclist who has had an injury because of someone else’s fault then you may be considering making a bicycle accident claim.
What kind of injuries do cyclists endure?
It doesn’t matter how minor you feel your injury is, if you have been unable to go to work, have had to pay out for medical expenses or suffered any level of pain then you are entitled to make a personal injury claim.
Because of the obvious vulnerability of a cyclist it is usual for a rider to experience very serious injuries before pursuing a bicycle accident claim. Some of the most common kinds of bicycle accident claims are those causing head injuries. Other cases are:
Soft tissue damage
Weather conditions can also have an impact on the risk of having a bicycle accident. Rain, sleet, snow and wind can all contribute to poor visibility which aggravates the risk of a road accident.
