Collisions between cyclists and motor vehicles are common, except there’s much less protection for a person on a bike, so there’s always an increased chance of pain and injury. Many aren’t aware that cyclists have the same entitlements to compensation as drivers of motor vehicles on the road.
There doesn’t even necessarily need to be a collision to enable an injured cyclist to have a claim. There are often cases where a rider has been forced to take evasive action due to the negligent actions of a motor vehicle driver and still ended up with injuries.
After the accident, it is critical to gather as much information as possible, and report it straight away. Get to the hospital, see a doctor or physiotherapist if necessary to ensure that there is record of the injuries and that another vehicle was involved.
In most of these cases, the cyclist would be entitled to claim for damages if it can be proven that the driver of the motor vehicle was at fault. Generally, if a cyclist is injured and seeks treatment there should be entitlements to compensation.
