Bicycles have improved dramatically over the years. Many operators now wear helmets. Bicycle chains don't snap.
One thing that hasn't changed is the amount of damage caused to a bicyclist when a car or truck hits them. Even with a helmet, bicycle accidents can leave permanent damage to the rider.
If you have been in a bicycle accident, if you have hit your head due to a fall or collision, the most important thing you can do is seek immediate medical care. It is possible to have trauma to the brain even without any external evidence or bleeding. A brain injury may lead to death; it cannot be stressed enough that you should seek IMMEDIATE MEDICAL ATTENTION.
The second most important step is to secure evidence and locate witnesses. Time is critical to establish your case, and to make sure you receive the compensation you or your loved one is entitled to collect.
