When it comes to cycling accidents, one of the most common situations that will happen is that after impact with another vehicle or an object on the road you will be thrown from the bicycle and hit the ground with a large impact. Upon hitting the ground one of the first areas that could be injured is your head. Despite the fact that most cyclists wear safety helmets, sometimes the helmet doesn’t work or simply isn’t strong enough for the level of impact, as a result the cyclist could be left with a concussion.
Concussion can be hard to identify because in many cases a person will feel perfectly normal and won’t start to see the symptoms and associated problems until a few days later, at which point it may have already caused brain damage and other associated problems. If you have received a concussion as the result of negligence during a cycling accident then you could be eligible to make a compensation claim.
