BICYCLE ACCIDENT & INJURY
Bicycle accidents can result in serious injury due to the unprotected nature of the bicycle rider compared to vehicle occupants. The Rider may be hit by a car, strike an object that falls from another vehicle, or wreck due to a defect in or on the road – these will all result in the rider’s body having a direct impact with a hard surface such as an automobile or the ground – or worse, being run over by a car. Some of the more common injuries suffered after a bicycle accident are head, neck, back, spine, and brain injury – as well as broken bones, road rash, or even TBI (traumatic brain injury).
