What’s the problem?
It’s hard to believe, but a fatal bicycle accident occurs once every six hours.
There are about 73 to 85 million bicycle riders in the U.S., including at least 44 million people over the age of six. About 540,000 bicyclists visit emergency rooms with injuries every year, and over 90 percent of bicyclist wrongful deaths happen in crashes with automobiles.
Bicycle Accident Injuries
Bicycle accidents commonly result in a variety of serious injuries, in addition to death. Common serious injuries from bicycle accidents include:
- Head trauma
- Spinal cord injuries
- Severed limbs
- Serious abrasions or "road rash" that can lead to infection
These types of injuries common to bike accidents may deprive a cyclist not only of his or her good health, but of the bicyclist's capacity to earn a living, and the ability to care for his or her family. Bicycle accident victims often require costly medical care. The need for this care in cases involving catastrophic injuries may continue throughout the cyclist's entire life.
Among the factors our skilled professionals will consider in your cycling accident case:
- At fault
- Legal compensation
- Medical compensation
- Traffic laws
Given the seriousness of the types of injuries often seen in bicycle accidents, these cases tend to be complex. Having a lawyer who is familiar with cases involving serious, possibly catastrophic injuries can make the difference in whether you are able to achieve a successful resolution of your case.
