The cycle injuries and head injuries that can be caused by an accident, and may mean you contact a solicitor in Beddington
Nearly 50% of cycle injuries where a motor vehicle has been involved are to the head. These can be from minor injuries such as concussion to major injuries such as permanent brain damage or fatal fractures to the skull. Most deaths in cycle accidents are caused by injuries to the head.
Wearing a good quality, well fitting cycle helmet can help avoid this type of injury, but if the collision is bad enough, even the helmet may not prevent the head injury totally. Make sure you buy your helmet from a reputable supplier, as there are many fakes on the market that will give you little to no protection at all.
You should always seek medical attention for your cycle injuries because no matter how trivial they may seem, they sometimes get worse before they get better. The reports from doctors can prove very useful when fighting your claim. A pre-existing condition can be made worse by an accident and your doctor’s opinions on this can be crucial when a solicitor in Beddington is making your claim.
If you are well enough and have a mobile phone with you, take photos of the accident scene and keep a diary of your injuries and the recovery. Names and addresses of any witnesses are also useful, in fact any evidence at all regarding the accident and your injuries can only make you claim stronger.
