When a driver engages in negligent or reckless behavior, bicycle accidents with serious injuries can occur. According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), there are over a half million bicycle accidents each year that require some level of hospital or advanced medical care. Due to a cyclist’s exposure and the massive weight of most automobiles, the driver of the car or truck can escape unscathed while the bicycle rider receives the blunt force of the impact.
The result can be catastrophic with bike accident victims receiving extensive road rash, fractured limbs, neck or spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injuries (TBI), disfigurement or paralysis. If you were injured in a vehicle-related accident, you may be facing a lifetime of recovery, so avoid speaking with insurance company representatives without legal counsel present.
