Compensation for
Spinal Injuries

We've got your claim covered

When it comes to a cycling accident one of the most common injuries that you might incur is a spinal accident, and unfortunately it is also one of the most debilitating. In most cases spinal injuries occur when you are thrown from the bicycle and impact with the ground, as a result your spine could shatter, you could suffer from slipped discs or you could end up with spinal cord dysfunction.

Regardless of the extent of your injuries, any medical conditions dealing with the spine can lead to long term injuries if not treated correctly and can leave you with injuries that you may be dealing with for the rest of your life. As a result, you may be eligible to make a compensation claim to cover any medical costs and rehabilitation that you may need.

 

What could I make a compensation claim for?

  • Loss of income – if you have been left out pocket as the result of being unable to work due to your spinal injury then you may be eligible to make a compensation claim. You may also be able to claim for potential loss of earnings if you are left with a permanent disability as a result
  • Medical costs – if you have received a spinal injury as the result of a cycling accident then you may require substantial medical treatment and this can be incredibly costly, as a result you could be eligible to claim for any medical costs including hospital or rehabilitation bills
  • Damages – a spinal injury cannot only be painful but it can also be demoralising and it can cause you to suffer great difficulty performing a range of common daily tasks as a result you may be eligible to claim for pain and suffering.

What are some common spinal injuries that I could receive in a cycling accident?

When it comes to cycling accidents there are a number of different spinal injuries that you could suffer from and some of the common injuries include:

  • Spinal cord dysfunction
  • Slipped discs
  • Lacerations
  • Spinal compression
  • Paralysis.

Who could I make a compensation claim against?

If you are looking to make a compensation claim then there are a number of people who you could claim against if you feel that they have been negligent towards you. If your cycling injury was caused by an accident with another vehicle then you could make a claim against the driver of the other vehicle if they were at fault. You could also make a claim against the council or other regulating body if you feel that poor maintenance of the roads or cycle paths has led to your injuries.
