The team at Off Your Bike have been helping those who have been injured in bike accidents for more than 25 years, so we know that rehabilitation is just as important as claiming fair compensation for the accident. This does not just mean covering the costs of any necessary treatment, it also means seeing the right medical professional for your injuries, as early as possible.
If you have been injured we work to get you mobile and back on your bike by facilitating an early medical assessment and rehabilitation plan. This is often the best way of ensuring a speedy recovery following a motorcycle accident.
The injuries that can be sustained from bike accidents can range from minor such as road rash to major physical and psychological trauma.
Typical injuries sustained in motorbike accidents include:
- Muscle strain or bruising
- Back strain
- Degloving injury resulting in loss of an extensive area of skin
- Facial fractures
- Serious limb injury
- Spinal cord injury
- Brain trauma
You may also suffer from psychological issues after a bike accident; this can include:
- Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
- Sleep deprivation
- Mood swings
- Fear of open spaces
Here at Off Your Bike, we are part of the Connexus Group, which includes Connexus Medical Appointments. We use this company to organise medical assessments and treatment appropriate to your injuries. They have immediate access to thousands of specialists across England & Wales who have particular expertise in injuries arising from these types of accidents.
If you are not at fault for your accident we can arrange an early referral to get rehabilitation underway and we will request that the insurers of the responsible party pay for any treatment you require.
We will claim compensation for you but we also recognise that your key priority will be recovery and rehabilitation.
We will keep you fully updated on when you need to attend appointments and will ensure that this is conducted near to your home whenever this is possible.
We have assisted in arranging urgent treatment for many thousands of clients a year.
Treatment options often require a clear diagnosis and treatment plan being prepared for you by a senior consultant and we can arrange this.
The type of treatment will depend on your symptoms but may include:
- Occupational therapy
- MRI or CT scan to assist with diagnosis
- Nursing care.
More significant injuries may require a team approach with a multi-disciplinary team of doctors to assess your overall position and manage your treatment.
