Compensation for a broken arm sustained in a cycling accident

Cycling around has become a popular option for people who are looking to improve their own health and to save money on what has become incredibly expensive fuel costs in recent years. Although in many situations cycling is a very safe and effective way of travelling around, unfortunately this is not always the case and if you are cycling on the road with vehicles which are much larger than your bicycle then there is the potential for injuries to be sustained.

As a cyclist, providing you follow the rules dictated in the road rules, you are entitled to use the road in exactly the same way that any other vehicle is and if you have sustained a broken arm through the negligence of another road user then you could consider making a claim for compensation to cover your costs. 

What problems could occur with a broken arm sustained in a cycling accident?

Broken arms come in all shapes and forms from a very minor break right through to a full fracture and the extent of your broken arm will very much signify the amount of rehabilitation that you will have to undergo. If you are thrown from your bicycle then chances are that you could come into contact with a fairly substantial impact with the ground and if you do find yourself in this situation, often putting your hand out to break the fall, then you may find that the break is quite significant especially if you have had a significant impact. 

What are some examples of situations where I could suffer from negligence?

There are a number of situations which could potentially lead to a broken arm as the result of a cycling accident and these include:

  • Accidents which involve an uneven or poorly maintained road surface
  • Accidents caused by pedestrians
  • Accidents caused by animals
  • Accidents caused by motor vehicles
  • Accidents caused by faulty bicycle parts.
