Bicycle Accident Injuries
In a bicycle accident, a cyclist may suffer a collision with a car, other cyclists, or pedestrians. The bicycle rider may also be thrown from his or her bike and sustain injuries from impact with a stationary object or the ground or roadway.
A bicycle-to-vehicle accident can result in devastating injuries and even death since bike riders have no buffer from cars, trucks, or buses when they slam into them. Bike accidents can cause bodily injuries like loss of limbs, fractures, and road rash injuries. The bicycle itself can also cause injuries when the bicyclist becomes entangles in spokes or collides with handlebars, for example.
Not wearing a helmet, or not wearing one properly, can make matters worse, putting cyclists at far greater risk for devastating head and spinal cord injuries. A vast majority of bicycle accidents that result in fatalities are due to a head injury such as a skull fracture or traumatic brain injuries (TBI). Spinal cord injuries are another serious risk
What Causes Bicycle Accidents?
Bicycle accidents happen in numerous ways and lead to a wide variety of injuries. There are any number of things that can lead to a bicycle accident. Driver negligence is a common cause of bicycle accidents. This can be due to impaired or drunk driving, failure to follow traffic right-of-way laws, speeding, or texting while driving. Hundreds of bicycle riders are killed every year due to these types of driver negligence. Bicycle accidents can also be caused by other factors such as unsafe roadways or intersections. Other bicycle accidents are even attributable to defective bicycle parts.
Important note: If you or a loved one has been injured in a bicycle accident, do not dispose of the bike, any parts that came off, or any safety equipment (such as a helmet) that was in use at the time of the accident. These elements can be critical in detecting the cause of the accident and serve as crucial evidence in your case.
