Cycling Accident Compensation Claims
Cycling accidents are a regular occurrence on our roads today. With the dark nights still upon us, it can make it difficult for motorists to fail to spot a cyclist unless the cyclist is wearing a high visibility outfit and lights. Even with appropriate safety wear, cyclists can still suffer the consequences of unfortunate accidents on the road.
Current statistics from the Department of Transport suggest that bicycle accidents are up by 9%. About one fifth of cyclists injured on our roads are children. Children within the age bracket of 10-15 years are more at risk than other age groups. This is possibly due to the increased confidence of children using a bike at that time of their life.
Common types of injuries sustained as a result of cyclist accidents include:-
1. Limb injuries - With over 40% suffering arm injuries and around 25% suffering leg injuries.
