No-win, no-fee in Ballater lawyers talk about the brain injuries that can happen in a cycle accident
Most cycle accidents are solo events where no other vehicle is involved. They are quite often cause by potholes or bad road surfaces which should have been repaired.
However, almost half 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 cycling injury deaths are caused by brain injuries, and all riders should make sure they wear a good quality, well fitting helmet to try and reduce this risk. Bright clothing will make them more likely to be notices by other road users, one of the most common excuses from car drivers bring that they did not see the cyclist until it was too late to stop.
Seeking medical attention
If you sustain any type of injury in any type of accident, you should always seek medical attention. Injuries often appear to be something minor and turn out to be something worse, so you should get the opinion of the medical professionals. Trying to treat an injury yourself can make it much worse, you can cause more harm than good.
