We have you covered
Whether you are riding a bike for recreation, to improve your health, or reduce the number of cars on the road, cycling is increasing in popularity. This is especially true in the major cities of the U.S., many of which have instituted bicycle-sharing services to reduce traffic in city centers. With this rise in usage, bicycle accidents are also increasing. Some bike accidents can lead to severe injury and even death. It is important to know your rights and know when to seek legal representation if you have suffered grave injuries or damages due to a bike crash.
Injuries that result from a bike accident can range from minor to severe. Injuries to the head are the most damaging and can even result in a fatality or long-term disability. Your mother was right. You should always wear your helmet! The most common injuries that you might suffer as the result of a bicycle crash are:
- Head injuries: including skull fractures, concussions, brain contusion, or other traumatic brain injuries
- Musculoskeletal fractures, dislocations, strains, or sprains
- Facial or eye injuries, such as facial fractures, dental fractures, or foreign bodies in the cornea
- Skin and soft tissue injuries, such as lacerations, contusions, or “road rash”
