Cycling, whether for fun or in competitive sports, can become risky. Since the cyclist may hit a surface directly during a collision with other riders, drivers and other road users, the likely end result will be that person ending up with a lot of injuries, possibly from a cycling accident in Sutton in Ashfield.
If you have found yourself in a similar situation, it would be a good idea to search for a no-win, no-fee* solicitor, after you have received medical treatment.

Why you should seek legal advice after a cycling accident in Sutton in Ashfield
Cyclists are vulnerable to many accidents that cause injuries. They can collide with another cyclist, a car, coach, bus or lorry on the road, or even fall off their bike because of uneven road surfaces and potholes. Here are some common injuries sustained by cyclists:
- Grazes and road rash: the skin scrapes off when you fall on hard surfaces.
- Cuts or lacerations: these may cause bleeding, which can be controlled by putting pressure on the affected area. If bleeding does not stop, seek medical treatment to have the wound stitched and bandaged.
- Knee pain: “runner’s knee” may be caused by pedalling on uneven or rough surfaces, falling on your knees, trauma and overuse. The cartilage under the kneecap may get damaged because of rubbing and friction.
- Head injury: always wear a helmet to minimise the risk of getting an injury.
- Broken hip or pelvis: this can be caused by impact when a cyclist falls suddenly on a hard surface.
- Facial injuries: a broken jaw, chin bone, lost teeth and scarring are common when a cyclist falls on their face.
- Dislocations and fractures: these are common among cyclists. While riding, wear safety gear like a helmet, reflective jacket and bright clothes to make you visible.
