Research has shown that there are over nineteen thousand cyclists either killed or injured as a result of road accidents. This, of course, only covers those accidents that are reported so the actual number is likely to be much higher as many cycle accidents are not reported to the police. If you have suffered an injury as a result of a cycle accident it is important to discuss the matter with one of the Bristol personal injury experts as soon as possible. They have had experience of dealing with similar claims and will be able to talk you through the cycle accident claims procedure.

Causes of Cycle Accidents

Common causes of cycle accidents include either cyclists or drivers lacking awareness of their surroundings or as a failure to correctly look. This is most prevalent at junctions and crossings. Other causes include careless or reckless driving or cycling as well as speeding or impairment as a result of excessive alcohol intake. Although this list is non-exhaustive, it shows a number of examples where another individuals negligence may contribute to an injury. In such an event, a Bristol personal injury specialist will be able to help you claim compensation by highlighting the fault of the other party and therefore finding them liable.

Make an Injury Claim for a Cycle Accident

The most common type of injury that arises from cycle accident claims is limb injuries, with over fourty per-cent of cyclists suffering from arm injuries and twenty-five suffering from injures to the leg. Other injuries include those to the chest and abdomen, as well as head injuries which are usually more serious. It is important to remember that cycle accident claims deal not only with physical injuries; there may also be psychological affects suffered by the injured party and therefore compensation may also be available as a result of any distress which has been caused as a direct result of the accident. In addition to this, compensation may also be awarded as a result of costs incurred in relation to repairs to a bicycle, medical costs and other forms of rehabilitative care if applicable.
