Common Injuries caused to cyclists in Road Traffic Accidents
Posted on 6th November 2023
As no win no fee personal injury solicitors covering the Lancaster and Morecambe areas, our solicitors are very well placed to advise on settlement offers for personal injury claims; in particular, settlement offers for cyclists injured in traffic accidents, involving a car.
The most common injuries suffered by cyclists in road traffic accidents in the UK include impact injuries such as head or brain injuries, muscle strains, and road rash, which is the grazing of the skin caused by skidding along the tarmac during a fall. Other injuries may include fractures, severe bruising, and eye injuries. The contributory factor often reported in serious or fatal cyclist accidents is the failure of drivers or riders to look properly.
How much compensation will I receive?
Compensation amounts for the injuries caused to cyclists can vary significantly based on the severity and impact on the victim's life. Compensation can range from £5,150 to £12,240 for a shoulder injury, £7,890 to £12,510 for a minor back injury, and go as high as £219,070 to £282,010 for a moderately severe brain injury. The amount of compensation you could receive will depend on various factors including the negligence of the other party involved in the accident (compensation can be reduced if you are found to be partly at fault for the accident), the severity of your injuries, and the loss of earnings or medical expenses incurred due to the accident.
In pursuing a claim, our no win no fee solicitors might engage a variety of medical experts to assess the extent of your injuries. Common experts involved in such claims could include anything from a GP, to orthopaedic surgeons, neurologists, physiotherapists, or other specialists relevant to the injuries sustained. They may provide a more accurate diagnosis and a tailored treatment plan, which could be crucial for your claim.
