Bike Couriers injured at Work claims

 

Injuries sustained in bike and motorbike accidents can be some of the severest among road traffic accidents because of cyclists’ and motorcyclists’ exposure to other vehicles.

 

Bike and motorbike couriers may be working as employees, contractors or sole traders – but if cyclists and motorbike riders are injured in an accident which was the fault of another road user or party, a no win no fee claim can be made against the insurer of the party liable for the accident or injury.

 

Employers should also provide bike couriers with personal protective equipment (PPE) and make sure they have training in lifting and carrying loads safely.

 

Accidents bike couriers can claim for include:

 

  • Falls (slippery stairs and floors, broken steps)
  • Faulty products and equipment (helmets and protective clothing, defective tyres)
  • Lifting heavy loads/deliveries (spinal and neck/shoulder injuries)
  • Road traffic accidents (HGVs, buses, pedestrians, cars and vans, police and emergency vehicles, avoiding dogs, horse and livestock on roads)
  • Public liability injuries (slip or fall in public place)
  • Slips and trips (loose paving slabs, tree stumps)
  • Road surface accidents (oil spills, potholes).
