The Most Common Injuries For Cyclists In Bike-Car Accidents
Leg injuries are the most common physical trauma for bike riders when they are hit by a car. Cuts and bruises are also very common, as are fractures. Sadly, because cyclists are so vulnerable, abdominal injuries, head, neck and spine injuries and deep lacerations are also frequently reported. Road rash is terribly painful and not uncommon.
If you were hit by a motorized vehicle while on your bike, it’s important to first seek medical aid. Some injuries, such as internal bleeding or a concussion, may not be immediately evident. Knee injuries can require surgery which can be very expensive and cause lost wages and unpaid bills. Always consult a personal injury attorney if you are injured by a car or other vehicle. You need to know your rights to compensation and know what your injury is truly worth. If you lost a loved one due to a bicycle-car collision, speak with the team at The Smith Fila Law Firm. You may be entitled to compensation.
