Bicycle Accident Injuries

Bicycle accident victims often suffer severe and debilitating or fatal injuries. Even a single vehicle bicycle accident can be fatal. Common bicycle accident injuries include:

  • Head and brain injury
  • Spinal cord injury

  • Soft tissue injuries
  • Broken bones and fractures
  • Amputations
  • Facial injuries
  • Lacerations
  • Abrasions- road rash
  • Paralysis

Bicycle Accident Causes

Negligent drivers are typically to blame for bicycle accidents. A driver of a motor vehicle can easily cause a bicycle accident without ever making contact with the bicycle. This can happen if the driver forces the bike off the road or into the path of another vehicle, meaning that the driver who hit you may not be the one who was responsible for your injuries.

Examples of bicycle accident causes include:

  • Drivers who violate bicyclists’ right of way
  • Defective bicycle or parts
  • Defective roadway, including improperly marked or poorly designed bike paths
  • Intoxicated drivers
  • Distracted drivers
  • Drivers who do not know the rules of the road regarding bicycles
  • Drivers who choose not to share the road
  • Hazardous weather
  • Poor visibility
  • Defective motor vehicle
  • Inexperienced bicyclists
  • Roadway defects such as malfunctioning traffic signals or potholes
