According to The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA), more than 19,000 cyclists are killed or injured in road accidents every year. This figure is based on accidents reported to the police, but is likely to be much higher as many accidents do not get reported.
If you experience a cycling accident, there are five steps that you should follow to ensure you have the best chance of securing compensation for any injuries. Read this and keep it in mind so you are prepared should the worst happen.
If you suspect you have sustained a serious injury you should stay as still as possible and wait for the emergency services to arrive. If you are able to move, depending on your locations, you should make your way to the nearest safe place and call the emergency services. Some minor injuries can have long term implications, so it is important to consult a medical professional no matter what your injury and follow their advice.
