Claims for a cycling accident caused by icy conditions

Many people choose to cycle for a number of different reasons, whether it’s for fitness or simply to commute to work, but when the weather takes a turn for the worse cyclists can often become the most at risk and they could become involved in a serious incident. As the conditions deteriorate, so to do the chances of your safety as the icy road surfaces make it almost impossible to function, with braking and turning being affected the most. If you have been the victim of a cycling accident which has been caused by a person’s negligence during icy conditions, then you could look to make a claim for compensation to cover any potential incurred costs.

What instances might I look to make a claim?

The icy conditions can be instrumental in causing you a serious injury while cycling and this could lead to you making a claim for compensation. Some common examples of where you might look to claim include:

·         Accidents which are caused by black ice

·         Accidents which are caused by a negligent driver

·         Accidents which are caused by a failure to maintain a road surface

·         Accidents caused by a failure to adequately clear a road surface

·         Accidents caused by a failure to adequately sign a potentially dangerous road surface.

Who might have been at fault in this situation?

In general, if you received an injury while cycling in icy conditions then you could claim against anyone whose negligence has put your health at risk. This claim could be taken against a number of people, whether it’s another road user whose actions have caused you injury, or perhaps a road authority agency who failed to put adequate safety measures in place. Either way, if you feel their actions have placed your health at risk then you shouldn’t have to suffer in silence and making a claim for compensation could be a great way to help you get back on your feet.
