Bicyclists have every right to the road as motor vehicle drivers, with some specific regulations of course; but, unlike the occupants of cars, trucks, and buses, bicyclists have little protection against the force of an accident, whether it is a crash or a fall. In fact, the only protection a typical bicycle rider has is a helmet, but even that may not be enough to prevent injury in a serious crash. Other motorists, as well as bicycle manufacturers and roadway agencies, are responsible for the safety of bicyclists. If their negligence results in an injury bike accident, then they may be held liable for the losses the bicyclist suffers.
What Are Some Types of Bike Crash Injuries?
Bicycle accidents can be minor or severe, from falls to being struck by a car, and, as such, the injuries suffered in such accidents can be minor or severe. Common injuries that may be suffered in a bike accident include:
- Broken bones;
- Head injuries (including traumatic brain injuries); and
- Spinal cord injuries.
Bumps, scrapes, and bruises are painful and inconvenient, but are easily recovered from. Unfortunately, the majority of bicycle accidents result in far more serious injuries. Fractured bones, head injuries, and spinal cord injuries not only often require long-term hospitalization, but also potentially multiple surgeries and weeks, months, or even years of rehabilitation, after which the victim may be left with a permanent and life-altering disability. The challenges such an injury creates can put undue financial, physical, and emotional strains on the victim and their family.
Holding At-Fault Parties Accountable
There are a variety of factors that may contribute to a bicycle accident which may make determining fault complicated. Did the bicyclist violate any traffic laws? Was the motorist negligent or reckless in any way? Was the bicyclist trying to avoid a hazardous road condition? Did a bike defect cause the cyclist to lose control? Whether the cause of the crash was one or a combination of these situations, a skilled attorney would make sure to find the answers to all of them in order to ensure a successful personal injury claim.
