(businesspress24) - According to the National Center for Injury Prevention and Control, 500,000 people are treated in emergency rooms across the nation as a result of a biking accident, and of those 700 people die from their injuries.

But contrary to popular belief, bicycle accidents that involve a collision between a cyclist and a motorist are rare. In fact, most bicycle accidents involve only the rider and are due to a defect in the bike or improper maintenance.

¬Ä¬úEvery cyclist knows to wear a helmet in case of a crash with an automobile,¬Ä¬Ě says a spokesman from ToolBeast, a [portable bike repair kit]( ¬Ä¬úBut we need to get the word out about the most common reason for bike accidents: a bike that¬Ä¬ôs in need of repairs.¬Ä¬Ě

The most common bicycle defects that cause injuries are improper tube or tire pressure levels or initial installation, parts fatigue, or loose parts. And injury lawyers warns that if a cyclist neglects his bike and it results in an accident, the rider can be held accountable for the accident.

¬Ä¬úIt¬Ä¬ôs a shame that this isn¬Ä¬ôt given more attention in the press,¬Ä¬Ě says the spokesman. ¬Ä¬úIt may seem minor, but if more cyclists carried bike repair kits with them when they rode, they could quickly fix an issue that arises while out on the road. That would reduce a lot of accidents.¬Ä¬Ě The other three leading causes of bicycle crashes are motorists that collide with bikes, defects in the roadways, and product malfunction.

¬Ä¬úThe one thing cyclists can control is the proper maintenance of their bikes and ensuring that they¬Ä¬ôre equipped to handle any repairs that crop up while on the road,¬Ä¬Ě says the spokesman. ¬Ä¬úAnd it¬Ä¬ôs an easy fix¬Ä¬Ējust carry an [all-in-one tool]( on the ride.¬Ä¬Ě
