There are more than 20,000 accidents involving cyclists on the roads in the UK each year, and probably thousands more that go unreported. As a cyclist, it’s important that you do everything you possibly can to protect yourself in the event that you are involved in an accident.
Cyclists often ask, “should I wear a bike helmet?”
Here, we take a look at the results of a recent study in order to find the answer…
Headway, a leading brain injury association charity, are one of the organisations that have praised the findings of the study commenting;

So, Should I Wear A Bike Helmet?
At Cycle SOS we have many years’ experience helping cyclists who have suffered serious head injuries to claim compensation after an accident. We know the real and serious impact that an injury such as this can have on someone’s life which is why we were so interested to read (and share) the findings from the University of New South Wales. Whilst it’s not currently law to wear a helmet whilst cycling in the UK, the results of the study highlight how far one can go to protect you.
