    The symptoms of cycling accident injuries

    The symptoms of cycling accident injuries

    Most minor cycling injuries occur in young males unfamiliar with road safety rules and the majority of serious injuries and deaths affect adults and result from collisions with motor vehicles. Although bruises, muscle strains and broken bones are the most common injuries, head trauma accounts for most fatalities and long-term disabilities.

    Immediately after an accident, it is highly advisable that you seek medical attention, even if you feel that your injuries were not serious. Usually after an accident, the body produces adrenaline, which can mask symptoms of a severe injury.

    If you believe another person’s negligence contributed to your accident, you are legally entitled to make a personal injury claim for compensation. Get in touch with Accident Advice Helpline today to learn how we can help you start your no-win, no-fee* compensation claim.

    The common symptoms of cycling accident injuries

    Soft tissue trauma such as scratches, bruises, contusions, cuts and lacerations are among the common symptoms of cycling accident injuries. Sprains, strains, fractures, bone breaks and dislocations are also frequently observed and symptoms are characterised by pain, deformity, swelling, pain, bruising and limb immobility. These types of injuries require further investigation and management.

    Head injuries are often as a result of collision with a motor vehicle, and are responsible for more than half of all cycling related disabilities and fatalities.

    Preventing injury

    Wearing a proper fitting bicycle helmet can offer substantial protection in the event of an accident. Helmets should be worn correctly with the straps securely fastened. Cycling gloves can also offer added protection by improving grip and therefore better control of the bicycle. They also insulate the hands in cold weather and provide padding that helps to prevent nerve compression.
