Compensation for
Concussion

We've got your claim covered

When it comes to cycling accidents, one of the most common situations that will happen is that after impact with another vehicle or an object on the road you will be thrown from the bicycle and hit the ground with a large impact. Upon hitting the ground one of the first areas that could be injured is your head. Despite the fact that most cyclists wear safety helmets, sometimes the helmet doesn’t work or simply isn’t strong enough for the level of impact, as a result the cyclist could be left with a concussion.

Concussion can be hard to identify because in many cases a person will feel perfectly normal and won’t start to see the symptoms and associated problems until a few days later, at which point it may have already caused brain damage and other associated problems. If you have received a concussion as the result of negligence during a cycling accident then you could be eligible to make a compensation claim.

 

What can I claim for?

  • Loss of income – if you are unable to work as a result of your concussion then you may be eligible to make a claim for compensation to cover any loss of income you have incurred
  • Medical expenses – if you are injured through the negligence of another person then you shouldn’t be left out of pocket as a result. You may be eligible to claim for any additional medical expenses which you incur including hospital bills and specialist visits
  • Additional costs – in addition to your general medical expenses any type of brain trauma can lead to serious on-going injuries. As a result you may be eligible to make a compensation claim for any on-going, long term costs.

What are some causes and symptoms of concussion?

Concussion is one medical condition that can be notoriously hard to diagnose as in some situations the symptoms won’t be shown at all. In some situations a concussion will be evident however, this can be either through a headache, a struggle to focus or remain alert or even in some more serious situations, unconsciousness. Bicycle accidents are one of the most common causes of concussion and this usually happens when a person falls from the bike and impacts the ground, even with a standard helmet this is often not enough to protect against the full impact of a fall.


Who could I make a claim against?

When it comes to making a claim for a concussion you could make a claim against anyone who you feel has been negligent towards you, this could be a negligent driver of a vehicle which might have been in a collision with you, alternately if you have been injured at the fault of poor road maintenance or through poor signposting then you could be eligible to make a claim against the council.
