Having Head and brain injuries that might cause you to use the solicitors
Some of the cycling accidents happen as a solo event, maybe because of a pothole in the road which would cause you to fall off your bike into an oncoming car. One of the most common cycle injuries is a head injury. A head injury can be minor or major, for example a minor one could be a concussion, where as the major one could be brain damage, a fractured skull or a penetrating brain injury.
If a death happens in a cycling accident, then it is usually because of a head injury and you should wear a good quality helmet as this can help reduce the risk of you having a serious head injury. You should make sure that you helmet is brought from a reputable company, as there are a lot of places where you can buy the cheap fake ones. They will give you no protection at all.

Make sure you record your injuries
