Compensation for
Soft Tissue Injuries

We've got your claim covered

When it comes to cycling accidents there are a number of injuries which can occur, but some of the most serious are often those that you cannot initially see, and in many cases these are soft tissue injuries.

Soft tissue injuries are becoming increasingly common amongst cyclists and although they may not be as physically damaging as broken bones or head and neck injuries, these soft tissue injuries can often require a great deal of rehabilitation and can develop into far more serious injuries later in life.

 

What are some examples of compensation that I can make a claim for?

  • Loss of income – if you have been left unable to work as a result of a soft tissue injury then you may be eligible to make a claim to cover any loss of income expenses that you have incurred
  • Injury costs – if your injury has been caused by the negligence of another person then you could be eligible to make a compensation claim to cover any medical costs that you have incurred as a result
  • Damages – in addition to any medical expenses that you incur you could also make a compensation claim to cover any damages that you incur, this could include any pain and suffering that you have felt.

What are some common soft tissue injuries and how do they occur?

When it comes to soft tissue injuries, this generally refers to any damage which happens to your muscles and ligaments, the areas in between your bones. This type of injury usually occurs as the result of a fall from a bicycle, where you may use a limb to try and break your fall.

In many situations this type of injury can be more severe than a simple bone break or fracture as it can require a great deal of surgery to repair and a great deal of rehabilitation time. In some situations these muscles and ligaments can continue to plague you with injuries for the rest of your life.


Who could I make a compensation claim against?

Making a compensation claim is all about negligence and if someone has been negligent towards you then you could be eligible to make a claim against them. This could include another road user who may have been negligent towards you causing an accident, or the council or other associated body who may be responsible for road maintenance, if your injuries are the result of a poorly maintained area of road.
