Serious Bicycle Accident Injuries and Losses
Bicyclists often have only a helmet to protect them from injuries in a crash, and a helmet cannot even fully protect from head injuries. Because they are so vulnerable, an impact from a car, SUV, or truck can often cause many different traumatic injuries. Some injuries we’ve seen in bicycle accident claims include:
- Broken bones
- Spinal cord injuries
- Traumatic brain injury (TBI)
- Facial and dental injuries
- Skull fractures
- Soft tissue injuries
- Shattered or crushed limbs
- Friction burns
- Neck and back injuries
- Fractured ribs or pelvis
- Internal injuries and bleeding
Bicyclists often require emergency trauma care after an accident and may need extensive medical treatment. Many accident victims will miss work and lose significant income, as well as experience pain and suffering. Some bicycle accidents can result in permanent disabilities that will change a person’s life.
