If you’ve had a cycling accident and sustained an injury through no fault of your own you may be thinking about claiming compensation for being knocked off a bike. If this is the case you will need to bear in mind that any compensation amount will be dependent on the extent of the injury and the consequences it has.

Cycling accidents are very common in the UK and related injuries can be very serious or even fatal. Because there is a range of cycling-related injuries, the amounts of compensation for being knocked off a bike can vary hugely. However, some cycling injuries are more common than others.

Compensation amounts for being knocked off a bike

Most cycling injuries are minor and result in cuts and bruises. Below is a range of compensation amounts which may help determine how much compensation you may be entitled to:

  • Compensation for arm injuries sustained following a bike accident usually ranges from £4,350 to £86,000. If you end up losing one or both arms, amounts rise from £63,000 to £197,000
  • Severe leg injury amounts range from £18,250 to £89,000. If you end up having a leg or both legs amputated then the compensation bracket goes from £60,000 to £185,000.
  • If you experience fractured ribs or soft tissue injuries from your bike accident then you could claim up to £2,600.

Dealing with your bike accident claim

When claiming compensation for being knocked off a bike, as well as claiming compensation for your  injury and the associated pain and suffering, if your claim is successful, you will also be able to claim back any loss of earnings. Being away from work for a long period can have devastating effects on an individual or family. You could also claim for medical expenses including private healthcare as well travel to and from appointments.
