Sports Cycling Accidents and Claims
At Cycle SOS, we have previously represented many competitive cyclists and have been involved in a number of claims made by those involved in coaching and training athletes.
As cyclists ourselves, we are fully immersed in the world of cycling and know full well the implications that a cycling accident can have on training and performance.
If you are a competitive cyclist who has been involved in a cycling accident, our specialist solicitors can be of assistance to you. As the cyclists’ national helpline, we are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Call us for free on 0808 100 9995 to receive specialist advice and assistance in beginning your claim.
What can I claim for?
For the competitive cyclists that we have previously represented, we have gone on to obtain compensation for not only the injuries they have suffered but also for loss of earnings, medical assistance and damage to their bike and kit.
Whether your accident occurred in training or during competition, we can be of assistance in helping you make a claim.
Since 1988, we have successfully assisted thousands of cyclists in claiming compensation for injuries that they have sustained whilst on the bike.
Limb injuries are common in cyclist accidents, figures from The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) show that 40% of cyclists involved in accidents suffer arm injuries and 25% suffer leg injuries.
Head injuries, ranging from fatal skull fractures and brain damage to minor concussion and cuts, are very common injuries for cyclists. Hospital data compiled by RoSPA shows that over 40% of cyclists, and 45% of child cyclists, suffer head injuries.
RoSPA data shows that chest and abdomen injuries occur much less frequently (in 5% of cycling accidents), but are often serious. When they do occur they are often accompanied by head injuries.
What makes Cycle SOS different?
Throughout our time assisting cyclists who have been involved in accidents, we have become very prominent in the campaign for safer cycling. To do this, we have worked with Cycling England, the Cycling Demonstration Town project and various cycle city expos.
We are also keen supporters of competitive cycling and are proud sponsors of COLT City of Lancaster Triathlon Club Juniors.
We have also previously sponsored the Fred Whitton Challenge and Cure Leukaemia’s London 2 Paris: Inspiring the Revolution ride.
We understand that sustaining an injury through no fault of your own could instantly erase months or even years of training. In the most severe cases, this can mean a devastating end to a career and unfortunately, sometimes even implications on everyday life.
If you have suffered any injuries as a result of a competitive cycling accident, we are here to ease the process of recovery. When assisting you with a claim, we will ensure that you are provided with the most effective rehabilitation, medical assistance and physiotherapy.
