    Cycling accident in Kirkby Stephen


    Some people enjoy cycling because it is fun and good exercise, some like to race cycles and others use them as commuting vehicles. Whatever reason you use your cycle for, there is always a danger of an accident happening that was not you fault and you could suffer injuries as a result.

    If you have had a cycling accident in Kirkby Stephen, read on for advice and guidance.

    Your cycling accident in Kirkby Stephen

    Today, throughout the country our roads are becoming busier and busier and this can put a lot of cyclists off from riding their bikes on them. Some cycling accidents happen through solo events, because of bad road surfaces, and others are collisions with motor vehicles. No matter how your accident is caused, there is a 99.9% chance that you will fall off your cycle, and very probably sustain injuries of some sort.

    It may be that you slide along the road a few yards, which doesn’t sound like you would be badly injured, but in doing this you could get road rash which is very painful indeed. Road rash is where skin and flesh is torn from your body as you slide along, and you do not have to go far to sustain this type of injury.

    It could be that you land awkwardly and get up feeling alright. But the next day you are racked with pain in you neck and back because you got a whiplash injury.  This could cause you pain and discomfort for months.

    Compared to some cycle accident injuries, these two are quite mild, many cyclists have brain injuries, and some of them are killed outright.

    Who is the person responsible?

    It does not matter what type of accident you have, someone somewhere is to blame. Whether it is the driver of a motor vehicle, the council who are responsible for maintaining the roads, or even the bike rider, it is someones fault.

    In the case of a defective cycle the manufacturer would be to blame.
