Whether you live in Exmouth or in another part of the country a cycling accident can occur anywhere. You could suffer from an injury because of an accident that was not your own fault, and then you should call Accident Advice Helpline to speak to the solicitors in Exmouth to make an injury claim.
No matter what the accidents, none of them are the same, just like no two injuries are the same because people are different. Here are some injuries that seem to be more common from a cycling accident. For instance:
- Anxiety and other psychological problems
- Concussion or other head injuries
- Broken pelvis
- Broken Coccyx
- Broken Arm or leg
- Broken Collar Bone
- Soft tissue injuries to the neck, back and shoulders
- Road Rash
Head problems from a cycling accident
Where a motor vehicle is involved in a cycling accident, nearly half of the injuries that happen to the riders are head injuries.
These can range from minor concussion and cuts, to permanent brain damage or fatal fractures to the skull. The majority of fatalities in cycle accidents are caused by injuries to the head.
If you are wearing a good quality, good fitting cycle helmet this can help avoid this type of injury, but if the collision is bad enough even the helmet will not stop the head injury totally. Although, it does show you were taking precautions and wearing the correct head protection.Open Claim Calculator
You could suffer from Anxiety and Other Psychological Problems
You should treat anxiety and other psychological problems just the same as if you were injured with cuts and bruises when you make you personal injury claim.
These can be equally as disabling as having joints in plaster, and they can take longer to heal, so should not be treated lightly.
The Medical Treatment that will happen
Always seek out medical treatment for any cycle injuries. The reports from doctors can prove to be invaluable when fighting your case, and what might seem to be initially a minor injury can later develop into something more serious. A pre-existing condition can be made worse by an accident, and your doctor’s opinions on this can be crucial.
