Cycling is rapidly increasing in popularity in Southwell, mainly due to the fact that it is a fast, thrilling and environmentally friendly way to get around. Unfortunately, the rise in the number of cyclists choosing to saddle up and use the busy roads has led to a rise in the number of cycling accidents. In 2012 alone, over 19,000 cyclists were involved in accidents in the UK, with around 3,000 sustaining serious personal injuries.
What to do if you have had a cycling accident
A cycling accident can be a traumatic experience, particularly if it causes you to sustain severe injuries. The most appropriate step to take in the immediate aftermath of an accident is to visit your local A&E department for a medical assessment, then return to the scene of the accident to collect as much evidence as you can. When making a note of the accident it is important to record specific details, such as the precise location of the accident scene and the road conditions at the time of your collision.
