Bicycle accidents can result in catastrophic injuries and even death. Hundreds of people die each year from bicycle accidents. A bicycle accident lawyer can investigate the bicycle accident and fight to get you the financial recovery you deserve.
Because someone riding a bike has almost no protection when the collision occurs, these accidents can result in broken legs and broken arms, head trauma, spinal cord injuries, neck injuries and other wounds. This is true even when the speeds involved were relatively slow. Common causes of bicycle accidents are:
- Bicycle defects
- Injuries caused by negligent drivers
- Bicycle knockdown cases
- Bicyclists injured as a result of dog attacks
If a driver follows a cyclist too closely, does not allow adequate passing room, or violates the rules of the road, the cyclist can be seriously hurt, with injuries such as broken bones, tendon and connective tissue damage, and even catastrophic injuries such as a traumatic brain injury (TBI) or spinal cord injury (paralysis).
To avoid accidents, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration offers free information on how to be safe using a bicycle. To learn more about these accidents – and how to avoid them – go to http://www-nrd.nhtsa.dot.gov/Pubs/811743.pdf.
