A popular past time for lots of people, cycling is a convenient way to get around. But the volume of traffic on today’s roads means cycling can also be hazardous.
Cyclists are at risk of an accident every time they get on their bike. Although protective equipment like a helmet, lights and reflective clothing can help keep cyclists safe, thousands of people are injured in cycling accidents every year.
Common types of cycling accident include:
If you have been injured in a cycling accident it’s important to get your injuries treated by a medical professional. You might require an ambulance at the scene. Because cyclists are very exposed whilst out on their bike, and clothing offers little protection, cycling accidents can be very painful. Injuries include:
Depending how serious the accident was, you might have to take some time off work to recover. You could need ongoing medical treatment, like physiotherapy, for long-lasting injuries.
Being in a cycling accident can be very frightening, so you might need time to process what has happened and take care of your health.
Whilst you’re healing, it can be reassuring to feel financially secure. Claiming compensation for a cycling accident that wasn’t your fault can give you that safety net.
