Common Injuries in a Bicycle Crash
Bicycle accidents often have two collision points for the cyclists: The car and the ground.
Depending on the speed at the time of impact, these dual collision points can result in catastrophic injuries such as:
- Brain injury
- Spinal cord injury
- Back injury
- Broken or pulverized bones
- Compound (open) fractures
Many of these injuries will result in medical expenses, an inability to work, and personal pain and suffering. Some of them will prove impossible to fully recover from. It will be essential that you obtain a medical exam at once to determine the extent of your injuries and the road to recovery.
