What are cycling accident compensation claims?

A cycling accident compensation claim refers to the legal process of seeking financial recompense for injuries sustained in a bicycle accident, where the liability lies either completely or partially with another party.  By seeking compensation, cyclists can hold the responsible parties accountable, and receive the resources they need to recover and get back on their feet following a cycling accident. Cycling accident claims seek to recover losses for a number of damages; including medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and property damage. Cyclists may pursue a claim to ensure they have the support they need to recover from their injuries and regain financial stability. At Fletchers, our team of specialist cycling accident solicitors will fight on your behalf to secure compensation for your injury.

What are the symptoms of a cycling accident claim?

Cycling accidents can result in a range of injuries and symptoms that vary in severity. Common injuries sustained in cycling accidents include; fractures, head injuries, abrasions, and soft tissue injuries, such as sprains and strains. Symptoms may manifest as pain, swelling, bruising, difficulty moving, dizziness, headaches, and cognitive impairments. 

 Injuries and symptoms of a cycling accident claim can include: 

1. Head injuries: Cyclists often suffer head injuries following from an accident, ranging from mild concussions to severe traumatic brain injuries due to the force exerted. 

2. Spinal cord injuries: The spine is particularly vulnerable, and a cycling accident can cause significant damage, resulting in spinal cord issues, sometimes leading to paralysis in severe cases. 

3. Fractures: Limbs and the torso commonly endure fractures in cycling accidents, given they absorb much of the impact. 

4. Soft tissue injuries: Sprains, tears, and bruises are common and can cause considerable pain, often necessitating medical intervention.

How are cycling injuries treated?

As cycling accidents can result in a range of symptoms and physical outcomes, there are many ways cycling injuries tend to be treated, such as: 

  • Head injuries, from mild concussions to severe traumatic brain injuries, require careful evaluation and medical intervention to prevent long-term complications.  
  • Spinal cord injuries, including herniated discs or fractures, demand specialised care to help reduce the risk of paralysis in severe cases.  
  • Fractures affecting the limbs and torso require immobilisation, surgery, or physical therapy to promote proper healing and restore function.  
  • Soft tissue injuries like sprains, tears, and bruises may require rest, ice, compression, and elevation, along with physical therapy to aid in recovery and prevent chronic pain. Seeking timely medical attention and adhering to recommended treatment protocols are crucial for minimizing the impact of these injuries and facilitating a full recovery. 

The rehabilitation needs of our clients often vary and can be categorised into two main types: adaptive and restorative. Adaptive rehabilitation, such as physiotherapy or occupational therapy, addresses the patient’s immediate post-trauma needs; such as impaired physical functioning after discharge from the hospital. Restorative rehabilitation aims to restore pre-trauma levels of functioning, with physiotherapy helping to maximise recovery and facilitate a return to normal activities, like work and cycling. Occupational therapy offers strategies to overcome temporary or long-term disabilities, while psychological therapy helps people overcome emotional difficulties, and look towards resuming previous activities or occupations.

Can I make a bicycle accident compensation claim?

If you or a loved one has suffered an injury following a cycling accident, you may be able to make a cycling accident claim. Contact our experts today for a free assessment of your case and find out whether you have a claim, and how we can support you through the legal process.

How much time do I have to make a cycling accident claim?

There are some time limits to consider when it comes to pursuing a cycling accident claim. In most cases, you have three years to make a claim, either from the date of your cycling accident, or from the date your injuries were discovered. However, if you are making a claim for someone who is a minor, or who does not have the mental capacity to make a claim on his or her own, the three-year restriction may not apply. No matter which circumstances you fall under, it is important to contact our team of solicitors as soon as you are able.
