Compensation for
Back Injuries

We've got your claim covered

When it comes to cycling accidents one of the most serious types of injuries that you can incur is a back injury. As one of the most important areas of our bodies, our backs are responsible for our ability to perform most common, daily tasks, in addition to being able to move about freely and lift, pull, push and hold many different items.

Back injuries which result from cycling accidents can leave the victim unable to work or perform a range of common tasks, in addition, many back injuries can become degenerative and stay with the victim throughout their life. If you have suffered a back injury through the negligence of another person then you could be eligible to make a claim for compensation.

 

What can I claim for?

  • Medical costs – if you have been left with hospital and medical bills as the result of negligence on behalf of another person then you could be eligible to claim for any costs that you have incurred
  • Damages – in addition to medical costs, back injuries may also leave you with serious, long term health issues which could lead to a great deal of pain and suffering, as a result you could be eligible to make a claim
  • Loss of income – if you are unable to work as the result of negligence on behalf of another person then you may be eligible to make a claim for compensation to cover any loss of income that you have incurred as a result.

What are some causes and symptoms of back injuries?

Back injuries can be caused by many things, but are usually the result of the victim being thrown from a bicycle. Once the victim has been thrown from a bicycle they may land in an awkward position and this can lead to the back becoming disjointed and being injured as a result.

Back injuries can lead to a whole range of symptoms, ranging from increasing pain and discomfort for the individual, right through to slipped discs, sprains, strains and in some serious cases paralysis. Back injuries often require a great deal of rehabilitation and this process can be both lengthy and expensive.


Who could I make a claim against?

When it comes to making a personal injury claim, you can claim against anyone who you feel has been negligent towards you. In the case of a bicycle accident this may be any road user who has been careless and caused an accident with your bicycle. This could also be a private property owner or the council if the land which you were cycling on was poorly maintained and you were left with injuries as a result.
