Many bicycle accidents are caused by drivers persistently on their cell phones. By the same token, riders can be hurt ignoring the rules of the road. Stopping at stop signs, making eye contact with drivers when negotiating turns and other safe actions can certainly prevent some of these collisions.
When you are involved in a bicycle crash, it is important to retain the damaged property from the wreck. The helmet can indicate the severity of head trauma. The frame or bent wheels can determine the point of impact.
Even if you don't feel hurt at the scene, chances are pretty good you will feel it the next day. Getting checked out is a good preventative measure to make sure there are no broken bones. Bones can break and feel like a strain. An undiagnosed broken bone can cause long term harm if the bone doesn't heal properly.
