Bicycle riders are at risk of injury from a variety of sources. Crowded city streets are ripe for collisions between bicyclists, pedestrians, and motor vehicles. Even in a less-populated area, bicyclists are still at risk for serious injuries. Bicycles may be struck or run off the road due to low visibility or impatient and careless automobile drivers. Unfortunately, accidents involving motor vehicles are far more frequent than accidents involving pedestrians.
When a cyclist is struck by a motor vehicle, there is a high possibility of severe injury. These injuries may include:
- Broken or dislocated bones
- Torn ligaments or tendons
- Spinal cord injuries
- Brain injuries
Sometimes, these injuries have permanent or semi-permanent physical and emotional effects that may require expensive ongoing treatment and rehabilitation. Understanding your rights as a bicyclist and recovering the losses you’re entitled to can be simplified by an attorney with extensive experience in personal injury law.
