Compensation for upper body injuries sustained in a cycling accident

Although many people look towards cycling as a popular alternative to getting around in a car, there are some potential problems that are associated with this type of physical activity. Cycling can allow you to do a great deal including giving you the ability to keep fit and to cut down costs on what you would traditionally spend on a car, but unfortunately bicycles can’t give you that tough exterior that you do get with a car, and this can be a problem when there’s an accident.

If you have been involved in a cycling accident then chances are that you have been thrown from your bicycle and during your fall you may have used your upper body to help break that fall. As a result, you could have been left with serious upper body injuries which require treatment – and you may look to make a compensation claim. 

What are some common upper body injuries that I might suffer from?

You could find that you suffer from a number of different upper body injuries as a result of a cycling accident. Head and neck injuries are probably among the most common especially if you are subjected to a rather substantial fall. You could also suffer broken bones and fractures to your arm if you try to use your arm or your wrist in an attempt to break your fall. 

If I am eligible, where might I look to make a claim?

There are several different situations where you may consider making a claim, some common examples of these include:

Claims for cycling accidents caused by a motor vehicle
